FED stands for financial eligibility date. This is the date when a phone stops having a financial obligation to its contracted network or provider. After this date has expired the phone can be legitimately transferred over to another network.
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.
