IMEI Carrier Check: Check your iPhone’s IMEI number with an online checker

An IMEI Carrier Check is a service that can identify if your iPhone is Carrier-Locked or not and which carrier is locking it.

There are also more specific IMEI Carrier checks such as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, MetroPCS, Boost Mobile, Straight Talk, and T-Mobile IMEI Check services.

Those carrier-specific services will not only check if your iPhone is locked or unlocked to that particular carrier, but it will also dig a little deeper and find out the reason behind that carrier lock.

Why should you get an IMEI Carrier Check?

The IMEI Carrier Check, and IMEI checks in general, provide information that will help you to identify and reveal the real status of an iPhone.

There are plenty of reasons why should you get your IMEI carrier checked:

  1. Verify that your iPhone is tied to that IMEI number and it has the right specifications
  2. Get accurate and up-to-date information on an iPhone’s SIM-Lock & Carrier lock status
  3. It will reveal any possible lock issues of a used iPhone (before buying it)
  4. It will help you to pick the right unlocking solution based on the IMEI results
  5. It can work as a status certification if you plan to sell your iPhone


Let’s analyze a bit more of how an IMEI Carrier check can help you with the purchase of a used iPhone and unlocking service.

Before buying a used iPhone:

An honest seller should list any possible locks, contract status, warranty status, blacklist & iCloud lock status.

Unfortunately, many people have no idea what they are buying, since the sellers do not share the exact status of their iPhones (you can check our Analysis of over 110,000 second-hand iPhone Unlock Requests which shows that almost 30% do not know if their device is locked or their lock-carrier).

An IMEI Carrier Check is essential since it is the only way to find out if an iPhone is locked and which carrier has locked it.


Getting a SIM Unlock service:

Knowing the network that locks your iPhone is vital since you can get in touch with them and request a SIM Unlock removal.

If your iPhone meets their unlock policy requirements, you can get your iPhone unlocked for free.

If they reject your request, you should find a proper IMEI Unlock Service, which will be very easy since you will have an IMEI Carrier check report.

  • To find your IMEI: Dial *#06# or go to “Settings” > ”General”> “About” > ”IMEI”
  • Hidden
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

What information does an IMEI Carrier Check have?

This service is the easiest way to get basic iPhone IMEI info such as:

  • SIM-Lock Status
  • Locking Carrier
  • Country of origin
  • Warranty information
  • Purchase date
  • Physical and technical characteristics (model, color, memory, firmware version)


The above information is enough to determine whether your iPhone is SIM-Locked and which carrier is locking it. Also, you will be able to cross-check that the specifications of that IMEI number are correct.

Will I need additional IMEI Checks?

With an IMEI Carrier check, you are basically focusing on the SIM & carrier lock of an iPhone.

However, there are a few more equally important things you should check, the Blacklist, Financial, Contract & iCloud status. Those locks will put a few restrictions on the iPhone, with the iCloud lock being able to render your iPhone useless.

Also, if an iPhone is blacklisted, has unpaid bills, or is iCloud locked, you cannot ask for help from your carrier. I mean you can ask, but they cannot do anything about it.

Instead of getting multiple IMEI Check services (Carrier, Blacklist & iCloud), our iPhone IMEI check service will review the full history of your iPhone’s IMEI number, identify all possible locks, and suggest unlock solutions for you.
