    I'm a bit curious, where does iphoneimei.info get their serial number, lock unlock status etc?

    Are they connecting to Apple's database somehow? Any clue?

    +1 - I'd love to know this too. But, pretty sure they're not going to share.

    Is it even legal?! Useful database but questionable sources!

    They will never tell you to be honest, otherwise you'll see duplicates of their site.

    Anyone knows how accurate is the estimated purchase date ?
    Is it probably the day the phone was activated ?

    Not that i care, but technically its against the law to unlock your phone without your carrier's permission. That's why i never really trusted these sites, i mean i know they will unlock your phone, but no idea if their means are legitimate or not.

    Yes, but you can unlock it elsewhere for $2 instead;)

    So I decided to try the site out since I've never heard of them, and. Pretty spot on. They know everything about my telephone, it seems. And I would like to know how, as well.
