What does Phonecheck certified mean?

Phonecheck is the industry standard in used phone certification.

Before we sell any phone, we need to be 100% confident it passes a number of critical tests. The most important include:

  • Lock Detection - Checks for manufacturer, carrier, & software locks.
  • Diagnostics - Automated component functionality scan.
  • Battery Health - Battery capacity check to receive and hold a charge.
  • Authenticity - Replacement part & background check.
  • Cellular Service - Check SIM, place test call and sms message.
  • Erase and reset - Secure data wipe and reset to factory default.

Phonecheck allows our technical team to check every device before it is sent to a customer.
