Trade-in tool changes IMEI
lookingforanswers-yes

Hi there,

I entered 2 trade-ins for Apple phones in the online tool and both email receipts have a completely different IMEI than I originally entered and the one on the phone 'About' screen. Will this be an issue for trade in? The phones were originally purchased through T Mobile.

I tried to cancel and resubmit the trade-ins to correct the IMEI but it was changed again (to yet another number), so I can't fix this on my end. I'm concerned I will not be received credit if it's deemed I didn't send in the correct devices.

Please advise. I have not sent the phones in yet.

And I can add that the phones are T Mobile phones.

@lookinforanswers-yes ,

Trading in your phones within the required time is always going to be important, so do not wait too long to do so. When you trade in a device, there will always be an expected/initial appraised value, and then a final/adjusted value after the phones have been received. Are the make/model and memory/color of the phones correct? Is it just the last digit of the IMEI that is different, or all numbers? -Russell

All the numbers for 2 of the 3 phones I need to send in are completely different in the email receipts connected to the Trade In order. The make/model/memory are correct.

Should I try correcting the numbers through the trade in tool? I'm not sure how I correct this since it's not the numbers I entered in the first place.

So, I've tried to resubmit the trade-in and that's not possible. Is there anyone I can speak with or email with to correct the IMEI's for the Trade In order? This is really starting to upset me. I've spent hours trying to figure out how to correct this and keep getting logged out of Verizon.com and bounced around.
