What number do I call to check on a Rogers Iphone 5 to be sure it is Ok before buying.?
I have bought Iphones for my use before with no problem, this is for my Son's Wife and it is in tyhe US.
The seller is not an issue but I want to confirm it is not a blacklisted phone.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
You need to call 1888- 764- 3771. You will get a auto reply BUT press 3-00000. It will get u a live agent. When u get to a live agent, explain what u want. They will ask for the IMEI number. See if they can help u. Sadly all they will see is if it active on someone's account or has warranty. At times they may not be able to see if it's been blacklisted or not. I am sure tho they will see if it has been reported stolen and what not.
Also ask the seller or what not to give u the IMEI and SN number.
I have the SN and have checked thru Apple, still has Tech Service and warranty.
It was the length of Tech. service that got me to ask for a way to check with Roger's.
The iPhone 5 came out and was released on September 21,2012. So even if the user bought it on day 1, the phone still has warranty. 1 year mandatory warranty period. Also u can add apple care + on the phone for another year or 2 years. Many have done this and get extra warranty and tech support.
Depending on when the person bought the phone, it comes with 90 days call tech support. After the 90 days, u need to go to the Apple store.
Every single phone comes with a 1 year manfacture warranty. All iPhones come with a 1 year limited warranty from Apple. If u call Apple back, the rep will tell u the same.
Depending on what phone u got before and from what city, the phones warranties are different in different countries.
This warranty is just fine. The phone is about a month old. You have 11 months warranty left from Apple. When u get the phone, contact Apple and register the SN and IMEI number to your name so you won't have a issue.
Straight from Apple :
I have bought 2 3g, 1 3s and 2 4. I always register with Apple and on my 3 gs was able to extend the warranty another year.
The 90 day Tech had expired on all of then.
Is the ESN and the IMEI the same as both are 15 numbers long, it appears to ESN south of the border and IMEI here..
My 4 is presently downloading IOS 7 beta 4 and it takes awhile. so I can't check mind at this moment.
I like to tinker and I get myself in trouble some times.
Limited Tech abilities, although my son thinks I should leave it alone as he has to fix my errors.
