    Default iphone X insurance replacement...?

    ** Asking for a friend **

    Hi chaps, if an iphone X is reported lost or stolen and replaced via insurance. Then the original phone is found can this then be used by someone else or does it become locked or similar?

    Many thanks in advance

    It will become blocked by the network as a stipulation of the Insurance to notify them. The insurance also use systems such as Parrot (parrot!) which monitors IMEI numbers for re-activation after blockages, works in UK only though.

    Furthermore, most insurance companies stipulate that once they settle a claim, the property, if found, belongs to them.

    If the iPhone X is found after a claim, let the insurance company know, or sell it on Gumtree to Nigeria or what ever.

    Make sure its unlocked before its lost and then sell it abroad on ebay.
