IMEI stands for “International Mobile Equipment Identity,” and it is a unique 15-digit number that is assigned to every mobile device. The IMEI number is used to identify the device on a mobile network, and it can be used to block a device from being used on that network if it is reported lost or stolen.
An IMEI unlock is a process that allows you to use a device that has been blocked by a mobile network due to it being reported lost or stolen. This is done by submitting the IMEI number of the device to the mobile network and requesting that the block be removed. If the block is successfully removed, the device will be able to be used on that network again.
It’s important to note that an IMEI unlock is different from a SIM unlock or a carrier unlock. A SIM unlock allows you to use a different SIM card with your device, while a carrier unlock allows you to use the device with any carrier that is compatible with the device. An IMEI unlock allows you to use a device that has been blocked by a mobile network due to it being reported lost or stolen.
