If a phone’s been reported as lost or stolen its IMEI is added to a shared database of blacklisted devices. This database is used by most network providers. Phones bought in contract but with unpaid bills and those detected to be involved in fraudulent activity are also included on this list.
Mobile phone operators will not provide a service to blacklisted devices. So, if your device is registered as blacklisted it’s unlikely you’ll be able to use it to make calls, send text messages or connect to the internet.
An IMEI or International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number is a 15-digit number that’s unique to all GSM (Global System for Mobile) mobile phones and smartphones.
GSM or Global System for Mobile is the international standard for mobile telecommunications. If your device uses a SIM card, it’s likely to be a GSM phone. All GSM phones have an IMEI number.
There are three options.
Once you’ve acquired a blacklisted phone there’s not much you can do to get it removed from the list. The safest option is to check it’s clean before you buy.
Most phone operators do report blacklisted IMEIs and share them onto a common database, but they’re not legally obliged to do so. So, there’s a tiny chance your IMEI won’t be in the database. In this instance, it will register as being “clean”.
If you report your phone as lost or stolen and then subsequently find your phone or have it returned to you, let your operator know. Send them all of the relevant supporting documents and they should remove your phone’s blacklisted status.
