Default Samsung s4 imei checker? help

hi guys i am buying a s4 second hand, my main concern is, its a contract and might get blocked, the seller has assured me its a pay as you go, but as there is no box how can a verify this. i need a free imei detail checker to tell me the warranty info and network status, im buying it later today so i would be very grateful if someone could give me a free solution soon thanks kind regards

The problem you're facing that you don't realize yet is that the IMEI could be good on the device now, but be blasklisted later after you buy it.

The scam is that a guy buys a phone on a post paid plan, makes the $99 down payment or whatever he has to in order to get it out of the store,buys the insurance protection against it, then sells you his phone.

A month later he reports his S4 stolen, the carrier blacklists what is now your device, and the insurance company sends him a new one for the $150 deductable or whatever the case is. All told he spends about $275 in up front costs and deductables and gets a brand new S4 worth $600. And you get screwed.

So be VERY careful buying a phone that could still be under warrenty.
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!
