I bet most of you have absolutely no idea what an IMEI number is, have you? I certainly didn’t before I started researching for this review. It turns out that every hand held device – ie your smartphone – has its very own unique 15 digit IMEI (International Mobile Station Equipment Identity) identity number. You can find it by entering *#06# on your call screen, apparently. So, apart from being the phone’s identity number, what else does it do for you? Well, you might need it if you want to unlock your device to use with another network or you might be asked for it if you are planning to insure your phone. It will also be vitally important if you are going to buy a second-hand smartphone. The last thing you need when you are forking out a heap of cash for a pre-loved device is to find out later that it has been disabled or blacklisted or has an IMEI number that has been blocked for some reason.

Your IMEI number is your mobile phone’s identity and being able to use it to check the legitimacy of your phone is sacrosanct. Of course, there are a myriad of websites where you can check its status using its IMEI / Serial of iOS Device but it would be far more convenient to be able to perform the task on the device itself…and that’s where this app will come in very useful. IMEI Checker Pro is a new tool for Android and iOS where you can easily check information regarding your IMEI and find out if where it stands and if it is worth purchasing. With the price of smartphones being quite high these days, it stands to reason that there are going to be more and more people purchasing factory unlocked iPhones. While most will be perfectly fine, it makes complete sense to first check on its usability status. You really don’t want to get home only to find out that it has been blacklisted or has had its IMEI number blacklisted. IMEI Checker Pro will find that out for you straight away.

IMEI Checker Pro is very user-friendly and simple to use. Once you’ve downloaded the app you can check the phone’s status immediately. Either scan the IMEI number or manually enter it. Select the IMEI check button, follow the prompts and the app will give you all the information that you need. It’s compatible with all iOS devices and won’t cost you a cent. It will tell you whether the phone is locked or unlocked, which model it is, its serial number, its warranty status, when it was purchased, who sold it, the initial carrier’s name and its cloud status (assuming that it hasn’t been stolen, of course) as well as its IMEI number. There are a number of handsets that the IMEI Checker Pro will check. As mentioned previously, it can be used to check all Apple iPhones but it can also be used to check Samsung devices as well as LG, HTC and Alcatel Handsets,

So, why do you need this app? Well, if you buy phones regularly it’s a must have because it is essential to know their status. Apart from anything else, it could save you a lot of time, money and inconvenience. If you have a phone reselling business and you buy phones on a regular basis it could be the difference between your business being a success or a failure. With a few simple clicks you can find out all you need to know about a phone and make an informed choice. The ability of a phone to work with any carrier is also hugely important. If it is locked to one carrier then your chances of using or reselling that phone is severely limited as it will literally only be available to that one carrier. Naturally, this will limit your options - or your client if you’re a reseller – as the phone will only be operable on plans from that specific carrier and their plans may not be a good as some others. A fully unlocked phone that can be used through any carrier is by far the best option. This becomes even more important when it comes to roaming as it can make a huge difference in cost. It is one of the key things that potential buyers will look for.

The IMEI Checker Pro is very simple to use. A simple scan or input of the device’s IMEI number will provide fast and accurate results and that means that you’ll know straight away everything you need know about the handset that you’re thinking about buying. It is available now for free for iPhone and Android from the relevant app stores.
