FAQs

What is the IMEI code and how do I get it?

The IMEI code is a 15-17-digit number which identifies your mobile phone device. It can be obtained by dialing *#06# on your phone's dial pad.

It's a unique serial number that identifies each device. That is why the IMEI code is absolutely necessary to check your device or to unlock it. To request an IMEI check or a network unlock, you will need the first 15 digits of your IMEI code, even if it's longer than that.

IMEI stands for "International Mobile Equipment Identity", and it has the following structure:

  • TAC (Type Allocation Code) - the first 6 digits
  • Final Assembly Code (FAC) - digits 7 and 8 refer to the manufacturer
  • SN (Serial Number) - the next 14 digits
  • Spare - the last digit, it's just a verification digit.

How does the search by IMEI work?

In just a few seconds, we'll let you know the exact model of any phone for free so you can buy or sell it second-hand, or so that you introduce the correct model when making a request to unlock your phone.

For some checks, we will let you know of an equivalent model you can indicate to unlock your phone from its current network provider so you can use it with any network in the world.

You can also check the current status of your phone to see if it has been blacklisted or blocked by the network provider, if the warranty is intact, and for iPhones, if the iCloud Activation Lock has been enabled.

Where can I see if my phone is blacklisted?

To run the blacklist IMEI check, you need to make sure you got the right IMEI, by dialing *#06# on the dial pad, and not from the box, invoice nor from the back of the device or under the battery.

Type it in the text box and the result will be displayed on screen.

In case of a doubt, we recommend you running a double check with the original carrier of the device as well, to ensure no issues are pending with them.

Can I remove my phone from the blacklist?

To unblacklist a device, its legal owner needs to contact the network carrier that reported the phone in the first place. Not sure which network carrier has reported your device? Use our IMEI checker to find out the country and carrier that reported the device, and leave your email address to receive the information.

To remove the device from the blacklist, the carrier will ask you for the original invoice the phone owner got when they purchased the device, and any other documentation they might need to prove you're the owner of the phone. If the phone has been reported for unpaid bills, then the bills need to be settled before unlocking the phone.

I want to buy a second-hand phone. What do I need to check beforehand?

The most important thing is that you receive the IMEI number from the seller so you can check the history of the phone yourself. Buying a phone can be a big investment and we recommend paying for an official report. Do not trust IMEI checks that are advertised for free.

When checking the IMEI code, ask the seller for a screenshot or a video of the process.
