Default [Q] Make an exchange

Hi everybody! I'm about to make an exchange between my S5 and a Htc One M8 with someone online. I buy my S5 with a carrier so the phone is register on my name. The guy want me to send my imei to check if the phone is not blacklisted. It is okay to give him or its dangerous?

Thank you

I have done this a few times and as long as that ESN number is active on your account, to my knowledge they can't do anything with it.

I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe call your carrier to see what they recommend is the best method.
