partner with a developer that allows you to check the status of a device when entering the device IMEI/MEID when purchasing a device.
When purchashing a device from the product, we enter a unique ID such as the IMEI or MEID. There should be a way to check the device to see if it is blacklisted, reported stolen, or locked to a network. Also, after purchasing a device from someone, if the device comes back as stolen or black listed, we should be able to block that customer from selling devices to our store again.
If you can find an API for it, we would be interested in looking into it – thanks!
