Our team works closely with Insurers to reduce mobile devices which have been subject to an insurance claim being offered for re-sale at any point.
This close relationship means that together we can reduce insurance fraud and bring down the cost of insurance premiums for honest customers.
Here at Global Device Network, we are committed to providing the public with free access to worldwide data, supporting them in the purchase of a mobile phone in the confidence that the most up-to-date information about the device is at their fingertips.Register Today
Recyclers & Re-sellers
We provide important data to Recyclers and Re-sellers of mobile devices to specifically prevent the purchase of devices which could be subsequently blocked after they are resold to the public.
Because the Recyclers and Re-sellers are utilising our real-time system, they can make an informed decision at the point of sale, which helps reduce the purchase of lost or stolen mobile devices.
Our Check It tool protects against multiple insurance claims for the same device with numerous insurers and enables cross-Industry co-operation in reducing the cost of claims and identifying potentially fraudulent claims.
Check It provides retailers with up to date information on items offered for trade elsewhere and can confirm in real-time if a device offered to you for sale is blocked on any network or the subject of an insurance claim with any of our participating insurers.
We hold Police data which can confirm if the item for sale or for insurance claim has been the subject of a crime enabling you to make intelligent decisions.
Our Register It systems allows consumers to register their assets including mobile phones, bikes, cameras and other household items which could be of interest to thieves. You can upload pictures, serial numbers, purchase receipts all of which can be supplied to you in the unlikely event of an insurance claim.
Duplicate insurance cover & claims
Insurers can upload their policy information to ensure that they do not have duplicate cover or claims appearing with other insurers – thus minimising the chance of fraud being committed against their individual policies.
Lost or stolen verification
By checking an IMEI against the Global Device Network system you can double check the current status of the device in question and ascertain whether it is a legitimate device for sale or has been subject to a blacklist flag.
Check against international data
The GSMA Device Check database takes in lost and stolen information from network operators all over the world. It is the most comprehensive database available.
Make and model verification
With Global Device Network’s direct link into the GSMA Device Check database, we can verify each IMEI to ensure the correct make and model has been checked, ensuring that counterfeit models are left well alone!
Valid device certificate
The Global Device Network system will produce a unique device certificate for each check that takes place that is date and time stamped to enable you to buy or sell with confidence.
Every check that takes place is recorded within the system so you can see the full history of any given device.
