Very confusing, I know! Hint: If you lost your device, and reported it as lost to your carrier for insurance purposes, but then found the phone again — you need to call your carrier back and let them know you found the phone.

We do not suggest using Swappa for the major 4 carriers, because it sometimes provides the incorrect ESN status.
Always make sure to check the ESN when buying an iPhone secondhand. If you purchase a device with a bad ESN, the only way for the status to be removed is by the original owner calling their carrier to remove the status. Hopefully these tools make it a bit easier for you to purchase and sell iPhones secondhand safely and without any problems!
