Avoid purchasing a blocked phone
If you’re looking at buying a second-hand phone you can check to see if it’s been reported as lost or stolen through the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA) website.
Before you can check a phone’s status, you will need its IMEI. This is a 15 digit number that identifies the phone. Check our ‘How-to’ guide for more information.
Visit the AMTA website and click the link to check the IMEI.
Enter the IMEI number of the phone to check its status.
