    Try to find your device in black list.

    Found this, told me my 9530 I bought used is clean, here's what the site says:

    screen by entering the *#06# keys sequence or by following steps:

    * Go-To Home screen of the phone
    * Press MENU button
    * Select Settings from context menu
    * Select About Phone section from list
    * Select Status section from list
    * Check number from IMEI field

    At the current moment our database contains more the 1000+ IMEIs of devices detected in stolen applications installation. Each report into "black list" is a subject to investigate. Only in case of reporting by more then one vendor of the same IMEI - device security threat level raised.

    By default all devices have - Green level. If reported 1-3 cases device level become - Yellow. 3-5 cases - Brown level; more then 5 cases - Red level.

    We recommend to stop servicing devices that reach Brown level.
    Can anyone with a device that they know is blacklisted try this site out?
    Could be real helpful by preventing many threads

    Mods, sorry if this is in the wrong section..still getting used to the forums

    As good as a service like this is, it appears to only be for Android handsets and not BB's? Also they only have a list of approx 1000 stolen/reported stolen handsets, and based on the fact that there is a handset stolen every minute in the UK alone, this is small pickings... great idea though and hopefully one that will get bigger and better in the future...
