Sprint And Recipero To Prevent the Trade and Sale of Stolen Smartphones


Sprint is teaming up with Recipero to help prevent the trade and sale of stolen consumer electronics, including Sprint smartphones.

All Sprint retail buyback portals now employ Recipero?s CheckMEND online analytics tool, in addition to checking other internal and external databases, to help identify mobile devices that have been reported lost and stolen.

The CheckMEND database is an international listing of lost and stolen mobile devices available, comprised of data from major wireless carriers and law-enforcement entities globally. By evaluating all devices using the CheckMEND tool, Sprint can help further prevent smartphones that have been reported lost or stolen from being accepted into its buyback programs.

In addition, Sprint is helping to eliminate trafficking in stolen mobile devices in the U.S. and abroad by submitting the respective identification numbers of all devices that have been reported to Sprint as lost or stolen into Recipero?s CheckMEND database.

The CheckMEND database is available to consumers and law-enforcement agencies, so consumerswill be able to verify that a pre-owned Sprint smartphone has not been reported lost or stolen by running a CheckMEND report before purchasing the device.

Sprint has maintained an internal database of lost and stolen consumer phones, and participates in an industry-wide database that tracks lost and stolen LTE devices. If a Sprint device is reported lost or stolen, Sprint will disable all voice, text and data service for that device. If someone later attempts to activate that stolen phone on the Sprint network, Sprint will reject the phone as invalid.
