    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.

    If you order specific Replacement Service through your AppleCare+ set up, there is not any fee for the specific delivery. Any fees you may pay are going to be for the replacement iPhone. Some problems may well be lined below the Apple restricted guarantee, AppleCare+, or client law, within which case there is not any fee to switch your product.

    Applecare+ does not offer replacement in the UK, only available in the States
