Network iPhone IMEI Check – Why you should go for it
We already explained what a Network iPhone IMEI Check is, but it is really important to explain you why you should do it.
Identifying which Mobile Network is locking your iPhone, especially BEFORE buying it, it will help you to determine if it is worth buying it.
The most common scam that it is difficult to avoid (If you do not make a Network iPhone IMEI Check) is to sell Network Locked iPhones (Locked on specific Carriers that are impossible to unlock).
One of the carriers that cannot get unlocked, is the Straight Talk / Tracfone USA network. The seller will try to sell a Straight Talk USA Network Locked iPhone to a lower price comparing it with an Unlocked iPhone (Since those iPhones can be bought very cheaply) to make profit. Since it is impossible to figure out if an iPhone is Locked or Unlocked by just looking it, without a Network iPhone IMEI Check report you might get scammed.
