Validate existing or incoming stock ahead of arrival to streamline inventory workflow and strategy.

A Simple Export of Thorough Data From the Most Accurate Sources


The new bulk checker brings numerous benefits to our customers:

  • Improved accuracy and efficiency, with expanded services like AT&T and Samsung/Google information.

  • Enhanced UX features include a more user-friendly interface, smoother workflow, and a convenient history of reports that can be easily accessed and rerun if needed.

  • Prevents problems in advance by verifying product condition prior to arrival, rather than after.

How it Works

  1. Imports multiple IMEIs at once for fast, automated device data processing ahead of diagnostics and erasure.

  2. API calls with 3 processing workflow settings:

    • Cost Effective - more accurate info for the least amount of licenses

    • Most Accurate - includes more premium features and all available info

    • Custom settings - only the info selected for your unique needs.

  3. Increased accuracy of checks from more reliable sources

    • Individual columns of parsed data

    • Reports on blacklist lost/stolen

    • Includes Apple blocked policy "Chimera" to report blocked/ locked devices that will not activate mobile services.


  • Requires master licenses depending on which workflow is selected

    • Cost Effective and Most Accurate setting licenses:

      • ESN

      • Carrier Lock

    • Custom setting licenses:

      • SIM Lock

      • iCloud

      • ESN

      • Carrier Lock.


  • Upload a spreadsheet with IMEIs or input comma-separated IMEIs

  • The system presents configuration run options

  • The system runs the IMEIs in a background task and returns to a homepage where pending tasks, history, and upload IMEIs are displayed in a table.

  3. Spreadsheet upload: Click on "Upload File" to start uploading a spreadsheet containing IMEIs.

  • Custom - Returns a custom report based on selected settings

4. Monitor Bulk IMEI Progress or Start Another Bulk Check

  • After clicking “Begin Processing“, you’ll be segued back to the Bulk IMEI homepage. There, you can monitor the progress of your upload.
