Post Check the Status of Your Mobile Phone IMEI (Australian Residents Only)

This post is for Australian Handset Owners & all buyers of second-hand mobile phones in Australia!

Use the link below to query the status of your handset. Enter the IMEI number (15 digits) and click (Re)query.

You can obtain your IMEI number by pressing *#06# on your mobile phone.
NOTE: This IMEI check only provides details of those phones reported and blocked at the time of the inquiry therefore it is not conclusive. If the owner of the phone does not report it lost or stolen prior to your purchase, the resulting IMEI check cannot identify it as a lost or stolen handset.

Here are some Security Tips as a measure of prevention.
  1. Never Leave your Phone in the Car
  2. Keep your mobile on you, never put it down in a public place or leave it unattended
  3. Switch to vibrate mode in circumstances where a ring tone might attract the attention of a thief.
  4. Make use of your mobile's security features.
  5. Notify your network carrier and the police immediately in the event of loss or theft.
Q: What is the penalty for changing IMEI numbers and ‘rebirthing’ mobile phones?
A: Pending legislation will amend the criminal code to introduce a maximum two-year jail term for modifying IMEI numbers.
Q: How does IMEI blocking actually work?
A: Digital networks can disable a mobile phone completely using its IMEI number. Mobile networks can track this number through calls made on their networks and if a person tries to re-register a phone that is reported as lost or stolen they will be identified. The system automatically blocks or unblocks a handset on any GSM network by sharing information in a central database called the AMTA IMEI Clearing House.

Optus, Telstra and Vodafone send a list of phones to be blocked or unblocked each day and also receive the details of phones to be blocked or unblocked from the other service providers. This means once a lost, stolen or found mobile phone has been reported to a service provider it can be blocked or unblocked within 24 hours.
