Usually, when someone is looking for a Bell Canada Blacklist IMEI Check Tool believes that a cell phone becomes blacklisted when it is reported as lost or stolen.
But this is not true at all, because a handset can enter Canada’s Blacklist IMEI Database for other reasons too.
About Canada’s Mobile Blacklist Database?
Europe and Canada were the pioneers of Mobile Blacklist development. The first Blacklist was created in Europe back in 2007 and Canada followed the lead in 2013.
You can’t use any Wireless Network inside Canada as soon as an iPhone or Android smartphone becomes blacklisted. The only way to do so is to unblacklist the phone.
Since 2017, Canada shares its national Blacklist Database with the USA and vice versa. This means that a blacklisted Canada phone won’t be functional inside the USA.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that a blacklisted iPhone can be sold through an online market, a local retailer or personal transaction. Intentionally or not!
Bell Mobility Blacklist Status explained
Take a look at this story from mobilesyrup.
Last December, David Price-Williams, a 17 year old teen from Montreal, bought a used Bell Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on Kijiji for $700.
When his relatively new Note 4 arrived, which was unlocked, it worked just fine; several weeks later, it became a proverbial lemon. TELUS, his provider, told him it was because his device had been added to Canada’s GSM blacklist by Bell.
Bell may had good reason to add Price-Williams’ phone to the GSM blacklist based on the actions of its previous owner—according to the CBC, the phone’s previous owner was behind on his payments
After the issue cropped up, he contacted Bell and asked them to whitelist the phone. The company has yet to relent.Igor Bonifacic

Free Online Bell Canada Blacklist IMEI Check Companies
Free IMEI Check Services cannot be trusted for one simple reason. They can’t access GSX and GSM databases. Their results are fake or outdated.
But even if they were solid, they will only tell you if a mobile was lost or stolen.
An official IMEI Check provider must pay to be a third-party partner and you will have to pay also to benefit from their services.
Is a Bell Canada Blacklist IMEI Check Report enough?
If you ask me, knowing the exact blacklist status of a cell phone is great. But what about:
- SIM Lock Status
- iCloud Activation Lock Status
- Contract Status
- Warranty Status
- Financial Balance Status
- Replaced IMEI Status
- Replaced Serial Status
- Phone Specifications Status
All these issues can lock, relock or blacklist the second-hand mobile you are going to buy (or already purchased).
