Swappa Imei checker sucks

Noreaster 110 41 August 19, 2016 at 10:38 AM
So i was hoping to purchase a phone off eBay with the hopes of activating it on tmobile and found one listing with the imei and claiming it was clear and ready to be activated. Well me being curious I entered that number in swappa's checker and it did come back clear. I then decided to enter it into tmobiles checker and this came up.

This device has an outstanding balance that must be paid or it may not be able to be used on T-Mobile network.

I know many people have confidence in swappa, but I'm wondering how many phones are allowed to be listed on swappa that really shouldn't be because of this.

So i guess this is just a warning to people buying branded phones. Don't Rely on checkers like this cause you could get burned.

Go yell at Swappa. They have forum. Nobody here can help you. the employees only care about the sellers because that where they get profit from.
If you're asking too many questions, they will just ignore you.
If you don't buy the phone, other buyer will buy it. Swappa doesn't care about "checker sucks".
