Is there a website or an app that when you type an IMEI in it tells you what phone it belongs to - would be good for when buying phones of ebay or something like that (obv people here can be trusted :) )

Cheers

There is but it costs to use it.

http://www.checkmend.com/uk/ £1.99

Not everyone here can be trusted, its better than it was though.


Be aware though that the majority of phones that are bought and blacklisted are blacklisted after the sale (often a few months later) so they can claim on their insurance so this wouldn't help

Thats what im afraid of tbh :/, but if i get the iPhone i was thinking i could just take it the genius bar and get it swapped before they try blocking it.

Is that a good idea ?

It works with my HTC G1 but may be different with iPhone

No because they all run the same software, that would be fraud, they have software to check whne it last crashed and was re-flashed and things.

That site works, but it doesn't tell you if it was stolen.

Okay thanks for that, would i be able to fight my case if i did buy an iphone and then a few weeks later got blocked ?

He didn't ask to be able to check if it were stolen?

Just ring your service provider and they will tell you free if its on the imei blacklist.

try this one https://prod.eie.net.au/portal/mymimeiinquirygroup/_0/action/IMEIInquiryAction/mymimeiinquirygroup_0imei/dont_think_this_works_in_uk/intake-grp/MYMIMEIInquiryGroup/template/MYMIMEIInquiry.vm/eventsubmit_domyminquiry/OK

Its aussie though so not sure if imei numbers are shared over there, I dont know where my blocked phone is or I would try it (thought I'd lost it then found it after having it blocked, t'was a good phone too LG Renoir!!!)
