ATTENTION: WE DO NOT ACCEPT NEW ORDERS AS OF MAY 1, 2016. THE SERVICE IS TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE SINCE ALL GSX CHECKERS ARE CURRENTLY DOWN AND PROVIDE NO ICCID SIMCARD INFORMATION. IF YOU HAVE PAID ALREADY, PLEASE EMAIL US FOR A REFUND OR WAIT FOR YOUR REPORT (ETA: 10-15 of MAY, 2016)
Every mobile phone has a so called IMEI number, a unique code assigned to the hardware on the motherboard of a device. But in case of iPhones and iPads this code cannot be changed unless you request a device replacement in one of the official Apple Care offices. In this case you will have to prove you are the legit owner of the device and that's the major stumbling block for thieves since they cannot prove the ownership and thus replace or sell a stolen iPhone/iPad.
And that's the reason why we only work with Apple IMEI numbers. You can find one on your box/check/warranty papers etc. Once you have found it, you can doublecheck if it's valid through our validity checker. If you see a basic report there, then your IMEI is correct and we will be able to work with it.
When your report is ready and once you have it on hand, first of all, we have to figure out if someone has started using your device after it was stolen or not. If we see a simcard activity after you lost your gadget, then we will be able to pull up that exact simcard number (so called ICCID - Integrated Circuit Card ID, a unique simcard identifier), the date when your device was activated with that simcard, its carrier/service provider/netrowk, country etc. You will be able to take this report to your authorities/local police to help them with investigation and retrieve your device back. They should be able to send an official request to the carrier using the data from our reports to pull up all the details about that simcard ICCID including phone number and all available information about the current user (if the simcard is not anonymous) of that particular simcard.
ETA for generating the report and gathering this data: 2-4 business days.
If report however, shows one of your old simcards or even a simcard activation preceding your own one (in rare cases),
and you will be able to confirm this was your old simcard (see how you can do this on Example of Report page), then it would most likely mean noone has been using your iPhone/iPad after it was stolen/lost, at least with a simcard.
In this case it is best to check back in a few weeks. That's why we recommend to give it some time before using our service in the first place.
Please note that Apple GSX reports with simcard ICCID details are operational worldwide since the service itself is not limited to any domain. Thus, whatever country your device is in, we will be able to pull up these details in any case so yes, you can call this service international. This also means you are free to use any other provider that offers a similar service in your country or online, but we offer you a benefit of first class support and care, leading you through the entire process of insider procedures, helping you read and proper understand Apple GSX data and answering all your questions as you move towards your goal of getting your device back.
Our service costs $9 and includes a detailed iPhone/iPad IMEI Apple GSX report with the last simcard (ICCID) activity details which you will receive on your email along with our further assistance in reading and understanding it. These reports are often used for remote customer assistance in AppleCare, holding a lot of useful information about Apple devices.
Once you click the "Buy Now" button to the right you will be moved to a PayPal secured payment page, where you can choose to pay via your own PayPal account or using any credit/debit card from any country in any currency - PayPal accepts payments internationally and converts all currency automatically.
We realize this is not much and success rate of getting a stolen device back this way is not high since it requires a lot of time, effort and involvement of police and authorities which can be more or less efficient depending on a country but it is basically a last resort with no further option which means any useful information can become a game changer. Some of you probably know, that before, you could even get a phone number in Apple GSX reports and moreover, pull up all the neccesary user details on your stolen device through their newly registered iCloud account just using IMEI: that included Name, email address, phone number and even address (we used to have that option before) but Apple Corp decided to remove these opportunities for internal reason unknown, leaving us and you only with the simcard ICCID information details. That's why police assistance in any case is nowadays required and highly recommended even if you have someone who can help you get user details within a carrier through the simcard number specified in the report.
If situation changes, we will be more than happy to expand our range of services and provide you with even more options and higher chances to easily and quickly retrieve your devices back without spending much time and effort on helping the authorities do their job, which understandably, suffers from high load of affairs, requests and insufficient human, time and financial resources. The more we manage to educate ourselves and do on our own, the more time and resources we give out to authorities for doing more important work more effectively. In this regards, it is vital to learn to read and understand Apple GSX reporting correctly in order to provide them with only essential information on your lost/stolen iPhone/iPad and save a lot of your time in the end.
On Example of Report page of this website you will learn how to do that.
