What does it mean to have a Blacklisted Phone?
When a phone is blacklisted or has a “bad IMEI” (yes, they are the same) means that it was either reported stolen, lost, (This happens when the original owner at some point made a lost or stolen report), involved in some kind of fraudulent activity (for example in identity theft or involved in a bank fraud dispute), or unpaid (The first owner of the blacklisted phone got it on credit and didn’t fully pay the debt and has unpaid bills/a negative balance with the carrier).
A blacklisted phone is unable to make or receive calls, utilize data, or both. When a mobile network blocks a phone, it will appear as locked for all other phone carriers, so even if you change the sim card on the mobile phone, the blacklist status won’t change.
Who and how can Blacklist a phone?
Only the proprietary or someone with authorization can report a lost or stolen phone, it is done by calling the mobile phone service provider or contacting a local police station. When stolen devices are reported to the network provider, they require some documentation to support that the person making the report is the legitimate owner of the device.
What is an IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number?
The distinct 15-digit serial number for your device is its IMEI number (International Mobile Equipment Identity), it can be used to determine a device’s manufacturer, model number, and country of production; every mobile phone or device with a built-in phone or modem has an IMEI number, you can think of it as a kind of ID that every single phone has (including all iOS and Android devices).
When your phone is blacklisted, the report is made on your device based on its IMEI number, that’s why it is so relevant for this kind of lock & you will need it to start the IMEI blacklist removal process.

How do I know if my IMEI number is blacklisted?
Nowadays, there are so many options to check blacklisted IMEI numbers, the IMEI can be entered into public databases to access all of the phone’s information including whether it is blacklisted or not. However, we do recommend you check with the wireless carrier where the device was originally purchased (you need to verify if it is a T-Mobile iPhone/Android, an ATT iPhone/Android, a Sprint iPhone/Android, etc., or another CDMA carrier).
If you don’t know where the previous owner purchased the device, just visit a free IMEI checker online to see the status of the device and see if you need to use our IMEI cleaning service.
