Find out if IMEI is blocked?

Hey guys how do i find out if my IMEI is blocked on my iPhone 4. I have tryed this site and it says my IMEI is unblocked:
Check the status of your Handset

But when I put sim's in i get no service or invalid sim. On T-Mobile it comes up that i got signle but when I try to make a call it makes 3 beeping sounds then say's call ended.

does this mean the IMEI has been blocked?

Thanks

What exactly is you try to do, does your SIM activate with your carrier?

Don't ever give out your IMEI # if you don't have too

checkmend will give you a full report but you need to pay for the service..

Thanks

so you will know it is blacklisted !!!

save the 1.99 fee...

Quote:
Vodafone & T-Mobile
If you place an active Vodafone or T-Mobile SIM into a blacklisted handset, the phone will appear to function perfectly UNTIL you try to make an outgoing call. When you try to call out from the handset you will hear a sequence of beeps and then the call will be dropped!!


---------- EDIT ----------

just incase you missed the link the first time.. as i don't believe you read it...

But when I place a Vodafone sim into the phone it comes up with 1 bar of signle and when I try to call people it comes up with call failed. if I turn airplane mode on and off off it comes up with invalid sim.

---------- EDIT ----------

Yes, I read all of that before i made this thread.

yes vodafone does not make 3 beeps.. it will just drop the call

t-mobile will make beeps before drop the call

if you don't believe me then spend the 1.99 and verify it for yourself..
I have used the checkmend service before and it works

your phone is blacklisted...
and there is probably nothing you can do to fix it !!!

IF HE ALREADY KNOW THIS WHY ASK??/


i think this its a scam and hes trying to get imei from people who will read this. what he can do with it. im not sure but im sure its something wrong.

hes not asking for help o issues with the phone even if he buy the phone from some one its easy as call tmobile and ask if the imei its black listed. now why he dont do that and come here with no post but the first to put a link to a weird website???
