Safety tips for purchasing a used mobile phone.

STEP 1: Ask the seller for the IMEI number of the mobile phone

The IMEI number is a unique 15-digit* identification number of a mobile phone. You can find the IMEI number of a phone in several ways:

STEP 2: Check the status of the IMEI number in the MobiMY IMEI register.

Enter the IMEI number of the phone in the search field below, and press enter. When the device is found in the database, it is possible that the 'seller' is not the rightful owner of the device. We advise you to be extra alert. You can ask for example, a receipt or other evidence. When the device is not found in the database, this is not a 100% guarantee that the device is obtained honestly. We advise you in this case to inquire into the origin of the unit with the seller.
