Hi guys. Is it actually possible in SA to check if a device is blacklisted or not? I've perused all literature that I thought could help me but seems like it's on a global scale with nothing localized. I have a device that I want to buy and the owner says it works on Cell C only. Now, it's an iPhone 7 and from my findings :
My question is if it is blacklisted why is it working with a rain simcard and CellC? Is there a way of finding out without really going to every service provider, one by one to ascertain the status of this device?
- It doesn't return a lost or stolen status on all imei checker websites like imei24
- It also does come listed as clean on these imei checker websites.
- Network provider lock under Settings>General>About says "No SIM restrictions"
- It's on iOS 15.1 which is the latest as i'm writing this, it's not yet bypassable so I'm sure it is not stolen.
