ICLOUD LOST lock removal: Provider Secrets

There are many situations when it becomes necessary to remove iCloud locking from the iPhone and transfer the device to FMI status: OFF. You can forget your username, lose documents or let the child play, which will ultimately lead to one. the iPhone is blocked. If the purchase check is long lost, there is only one exit. use paid blocking services. And we have been successfully providing such services for many years

iphone, blocked, icloud

But there are not rare cases when the device was stolen and erased and transferred to the owner to FMI: Lost mode. How ethical to unlock such devices and how these methods work. our article will tell.

IMEI- Server has changed its policy of providing iCloud blocking services. We fundamentally refused to work with providers who may act not quite legal methods or promote anyone in fraud. And now we will talk about how not to be deceived and not lose control of our device.

Let’s look at the two main cases:

The first case. The iPhone is stolen physically.

If your iPhone was stolen, then the first thing that usually comes to mind is to turn on the loss mode, as well as leave a message for someone who will get/buy your device. In more than 60% of cases, your iPhone is trying to implement in the shortest possible time. the sooner, the better. The fraudster will try to sell it before you have time to turn on the loss mode, or will look for a victim on any trading platform, vowing that this is “his” phone, but he “forgot/lost” the box and he urgently leaves and he needs money on ticket 🙂 or any other story that will be perceived by the “victim” very positively. At such an exclusive price, many tend to believe what they are told. But as always turns out in such cases, soon the “lucky man” makes an update, sees someone else’s icloud and slowly begins to realize what is happening: a successful seller does not get in touch, but he has a stranger in his hands, for which money was paid This is one of many stories that our customers share. The “victim” usually sees only 2 options for himself. try to remove the lock, or sell the iPhone to spare parts, thus returning at least part of the money paid (they usually do not even mention the first owner to return the phone).

For a legal owner, the chances of returning his device are not at all many.

But if you are patient enough and really want to return your iPhone, the most correct step, no matter how strange it sounds. do not turn on the loss mode ! The only thing to do. This will apply to law enforcement agencies with a statement about the theft and wait for the result. Surprised by this advice? Let us explain why.

Firstly, they can really find your iPhone, and there are many such cases!

But for this, the device must be in working condition. simply put. They should use it. You should also have a box and a purchase check, as evidence that the device is really your. The stolen iPhone can be found according to the unique IMEI number, which is always indicated on the box (there are no two identical IMEIs around the world).

Secondly, law enforcement agencies have cooperation agreements with the main large mobile operators, mainly with those who have their own mobile towers (with small virtual operators may not be). After you write a statement about the disappearance of the iPhone, on the basis of this statement, your IMEI will be transferred for monitoring to all operators with whom cooperation is established. If the new owner sets the SIM card of any of these operators, then your iPhone will be detected by IMEI with an accuracy of a meter. As a result, the new owner will be taken for interrogation, and the device will be confiscated and passed on to you.

Such a search can take time. several months or more and it doesn’t matter how many owners the device will have along the way, and how much money was paid for each of them, these problems of the buyer of a dubious device, and not yours.

That is, to return the iPhone, it must be in working condition. so that you can install a SIM card in it and use. In addition, the new owner of the “pure” iPhone probably does not even suggest that he uses a stolen device. This fact will eventually play in the hands and help restore justice.

And what is done in such cases most often? In desperation, many include iCloud lock and put the device in the loss mode, thereby forcing to hand over the device for spare parts. Blocking the device in Lost mode will not allow you to use your phone, as a result, with a high probability, you will no longer be able to return this iPhone/iPad, which will befell the fate of the “Donor of Spare parts”.

iPhones Cannot Be STOLEN. #Shorts

But if you have already come to terms with loss and the only thing you want. So that no one gets the device and no one could see your personal data on the phone, then turn on the loss mode correctly. By ignorance, many make rude mistakes, thereby helping to “untie” from iCloud their iPhone. It is categorically impossible to leave a message with a phone number or email to communicate with you. this is a big critical error and half the success for those who will work on FMI on your device. If you want to reliably block iCloud, you can do the following:

  • Put iPhone/iPad in Lost status. but do not leave any phones or e-mail for communication.
  • Call your mobile operator and report theft of the device. If you have a check on the device, the operator will blacklist it and this phone will no longer be able to work on the network of this operator. Delete the lock from the device, which is simultaneously in the black list of both Apple and the black list of the operator. Extremely problematic.

The second case. iPhone is available, but it has someone else’s account.

Full removal of the Apple ID account

There can be several reasons for irrevocably delete the Apple ID, most often this is due to the user’s desire to clear his “history” on Apple servers and create a new account. That at the same time will be deleted?

  • All personal data about the user without the possibility of recovery;
  • All purchases in the App Store, iTunes and other Apple services without the possibility of recovery;
  • All data from the cloud service of iCloud without the possibility of recovery.

The only thing that can save Apple in memory of the user is its own warranty obligations to him and already executed orders in the official online store.

How to completely delete Apple id

To do this, go to a special section of the Apple website devoted to data confidentiality, log in using your APLPE ID and answer control questions, select the “Removing of the account” and start the process.

There are several simple steps, such as: indicating the cause of the account removal, confirmation of familiarization with the provisions and conditions of deletion, entering the email address to obtain information according to the procedure.

The following is an important point-a 12-digit code will be generated, which will remain the only opportunity for the user to confirm his identity if he changes his mind to delete the account. The procedure itself takes up to seven days that the support service is required to confirm the legitimacy of the request, after which the user will receive a notification for the specified e-mail or by phone number.

How to check if there are unfamiliar devices tied to your Apple ID account
