1. How does this service work?
-You purchase the service.
-You will then download 3 files to your computer. One is a phone redirector, another is a computer screen viewer called "Teamviewer, and the third is a link to files for computers with slow internet.
-At your "verbal walk-in" time or during your appointment, made on the website you will open the teamviewer and call us if we do not call you. 518-847-7473.
2. How do I know if I have a bad/blacklisted/financed IMEI number?
Answer: Go to the "CHECK IMEI STATUS" tab and click on the link and input your IMEI. If it doesn't say it is financed, blacklisted, etc then it can take up to 2-3 months to actually get updated on that website IF you think it IS blacklisted and when you put your sim card in and it is not working then it is already blacklisted but not updated on the site yet. So basically if it doesn't work when you put the sim in, then you should just get the IMEI repaired now if you want to use the phone now and not have problems down the line then get the service now.
3. Is this a Scam?
Answer: No. The phone number on our website is real and you talk to real people. No chat boxes like other websites that may just take your money and run.
4. Does my phone have to be rooted?
Answer: It depends on the phone. If it is a newer model in some cases yes, but the phone will get put back to stock firmware after we are done. And your knox security will NOT be tripped.

Answer: It can take up to 15-35 minutes when your appointment (unless you are a walk-in) is confirmed and files are downloaded and extracted on your computer when we connect to your computer.
