If you’ve recently purchased an unlocked iPhone and want to check to see if it’s actually unlocked, look no further than IMEI.info, a free web app that shows the unlock status of your iPhone. All you need to do beforehand is find your iPhone’s IMEI number by dialing *#06# on your iPhone. After you’ve done this, a fifteen-digit code will appear on your screen. This code is your IMEI number.
Now that you have your IMEI number, head on over to IMEI.info and input your IMEI number into the textbox that is located towards the center of the site. Press the “check” button. A new page will then give you all sorts of specs of your device like the model, software version and release date. You can check your unlock status by scrolling down until you see the “Free simlock status” button. Click on this button to view your phone’s unlock status as well as its warranty end date.
There you have it, your iPhone’s unlock status. IMEI.info works with pretty much any mobile device, so feel free to give it a try with your other mobile phones and tablets.
