    Within the last few months the Federal Government launched a website where individuals could see if a phone was blacklisted from any US carriers. News posts were made about it at the time and I even visited it but I can't find it now after extensive Googling. I believe it was backed by the CTIA or GSMA organization? Could anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I dont remember an official US IMEI check website supported by the Government.
    You sure it wasn't one of those random IMEI check sites that are all over the net?

    Yeah it was definitely official to the extent that all major carriers and their MVNOs in the US were on board and that is was backed by some wireless standards organization. It may not have actually had and government affiliation, I'm probably mistaken about that. But it was a few months back and posted on some tech blogs because it was the first where they had all banded together to combine their databases.

    I believe the blacklist applies to all north American carriers and some European carriers.
