Default IMEI Research

Please Login to Remove!

I buy and sell a lot of Blackberry's on Ebay and I was wondering if there was any software out there that I can DL that will allow me to make sure that the phone is working 100%. Basically I want to make sure that the phones I am selling are in proper working order.
Thanks for the help! Nick

Looking at the IMEI isn't going to tell you everything you need to know. AFAIK there's no software to confirm that the PIN isn't tied up with a BIS account.

OK So before I sell these phones I need to call the carrier with the IMEI or ESN# to make sure that the phones are not stolen and that they are not tied to a contract anywhere. Is there anyway to run a diagnostic test on the phone to make sure they are in perfect working order?

I would be nice if carriers had some type of IMEI check on their website.

I know there are a couple of International carriers that offer it. You would think it would be a pretty easy thing to add to the carrier website...

So no word on software that can analyze the phone to make sure that it is in proper working order?

I doubt it. Software would require a connection to their network and I don't think they would allow that. I don't even think authorized resellers have that option and it's something that needs to be checked directly with the carrier. A site would be make more sense.
