Sprint IMEI Check is the first step before buying or unlocking a Sprint iPhone.
What it will actually offer you is the knowledge of the iPhone’s status & the availability of Unlocking or Unblacklisting services.
Sprint IMEI Check – Breaking down the checking procedure
A proper Sprint IMEI Checker should be able to provide accurate and up to date Network, Blacklist, Financial and SPCS information.
This can only happen if the company has access to:
- Apple’s GSX database
- GSMA database
- Sprint’s database
1 – Sprint IMEI Check via Apple’s GSX database
GSX (Global Service Exchange) is a database owned by Apple which contains information about all active and inactive IMEI/Serial numbers of Apple’s devices.
This database contains SIM-Lock, Network, iCloud, Warranty and IMEI/Serial replacement information which are essential if you want to buy or unlock a Sprint iPhone.
Public access is not allowed, so the company that offers a Sprint IMEI Check service must be able to access it.
2 – Sprint IMEI Check via GSMA database
GSMA database (Global System for Mobile Communications Association) contains information about IMEI numbers that are related with their Blacklist status.
In that database, over 750 Mobile Networks list their subscribers IMEI numbers and mark them as CLEAN, LOST, STOLEN or FRAUD.
Again, this database is not for public use, so a legitimate company that offers Sprint IMEI Check services should have access to it.
3 – Sprint’s database
All mobile networks have access to GSMA database (And some of them are able to access GSX), which means that they know at any time the IMEI status of a device.
Sprint is able to determine the SIM-Lock, if the device is locked to their network, the iCloud status, the Blacklist, the Warranty & the IMEI/Serial replacement status of its iPhones.
In Sprint’s database they are also able to add some extra information, such as Financial status, Contract status & Account status. They do not allow public access to their databases too.
Can I use a Free Sprint IMEI Check service?
Sprint offers a BYOD check, but the results are very vague. It will only show you if this device can be used with their network.
No extra information will be provided. It might give you a hint of its status, but it is impossible to determine if there is a Blacklist or Financial issue.
In order to find all the available information of a Sprint iPhone, you need to get a Sprint IMEI Check service from a legitimate checking company.
