PRNewswire: U.S. Wireless Industry Launches Free Consumer Tool To Combat Smartphone Theft (PRESS RELEASE). “Consumers will be able to verify if a device has been reported stolen or lost before making a purchase by entering a device’s unique ID at the GSMA Device Check-powered website. The unique ID – an IMEI, MEID or ESN code – can be located on the device, in device settings or on the device packaging. If a device has been reported as stolen or lost in the database, it will show a red status, and note that wireless service may be blocked from the device.”
