How to know which company an iPhone is from

¿How to know which company an iPhone is from? Many of you ask us in our contact form or on social networks how find out which company is an iPhone, which is the original operator you are tied to. Most of those who ask us do not know this information because they have bought the iPhone in the second-hand market and did not know that it was subject to a single operator, and they find it impossible to use it with other operators or in another country.

Before we could find out using iTools, but from the iPhone 4 onwards with this tool we can only find out the country of origin, we cannot know the rest of the data that is only stored on the Apple server: For which company is it blocked, if it has a permanent contract, if it has already been released and above all and most importantly, if it can be released by IMEI to use it in any operator.

Services to know which company is an iPhone

There are companies that have access to this information through Apple's servers, and for a few euros (or dollars) they will send us all the data from our iPhone that is on Apple's server, we have achieved enable a service on our website so that you can request all this information from your home and receive it in your email in a matter of minutes. You can also request that it be checked if your iPhone is blocked by IMEI for theft or non-payment.

With all these data you will only have to enter the section Unlock iPhone by IMEI that we have enabled on our website, select your operator and in a few hours your iPhone will be free forever.

    Perfect, I have tried it and in 10 minutes I had the info 😉

    Thank you very much!

    Now that I fall… wasn't there a computer application that told you all this information? Like IMEI etc? ...

  3.   José said

    mmmmm this information is free from a lot of pages., for example

    1.    gnzl said

      It is not true, the operator is IMPOSSIBLE to get it for free.

      1.    José said

      It is no longer free since October 2012, there was a tweak in cydia that was functional until last October, just as the pages that were free are not, there was a Chinese page that was giving the info at the end of January, it lasted only 3 days, I prefer to pay the service to buy a stolen iPhone or an iPhone with debt in an operator, the iTools is not exact, from iPhone 4 onwards it is the country of manufacture, example: the iPhone 3G Movistar Venezuela with iTools says it is from Guatemala / Honduras, The iPhone 4 / 4S Movistar Venezuela iTools says that they are from Mexico, in the famous page "from where on my iPhone", where the iPhone model is entered, the 4 / 4S Movistar Venezuela and some of Digitel Venezuela come out as Telcel Mexico, to know iPhone specifications if there are free pages, or the iTools, but say which operator is from, if it is still under warranty and even the subscriber number or the last mobile number that activated the iPhone there is not, greetings

    to release by imei with the operator iusacell in Mexico, how do I do it?

    1.    RastaKen said

      only Iusacell iPhone 3/4 / 4S (not iPhone 5) imei starting with 0127XXXX can be unlocked

  5.   Mario burga said

    Fuck with those prices so expensive, if there are other websites that charge from $ 1.00 to find out the carrier and I will come here to pay € 3.95 ($ 5.00)

    It is also not a service from you if you are not promoting a website that does not have a good reputation in its services.

    1.- Open the call app
    2.- Call * 3001 # 12345 # * (that opens an app and does not make a real call)
    3.- The hidden app "Field Test" will open:
    4.- Go to MM Info and then to «Equivalent PLMN List», and then to 0
    5.- Write the data aside (Mobile Country Code is MCC and Mobile Network Code MNC)
    6.- Go to and look for the MCC with Ctrl / Command + F and thus you will know the country of the operator, while the MNC is the name of the operator.

      on my iPhone 5 there is nothing in the Equivalent PLMN List, what does that mean?

      I miss a Zero is * 3001 ……

  9.   nacheto said

    the best thing is to call Apple Care, there they tell you all the data
    that the call is cost? Surely you know how to call the corresponding landline number 🙂
    (I'm sorry but I suppose that it will not be possible to publish other websites ...)

    Also put the option to unlock an iPhone from Movistar Mexico, thank you!

    1.    RastaKen said

      It is not that they put it and now, it is that the unlocking service for the iPhone in Mexico is not "stable", the Telcel Mexico was offered for a short time until 1 month ago but they can no longer be, the only operator that can be iusacell and it must be the iPhone that your imei starts with 0127XXX, I offer that service in my country, Venezuela, find out if they offer it in your country, greetings

    I found an iohine 5 on the street and they told me it was blocked by imei because the owner reported it, my question is: CAN IT BE RELEASED ANYWAY? Thanks greetings! Uruguay
