When it comes to LTE/4G Devices and Verizon, you usually don't have to check the status of the IMEI or the MEID. The MEID is the IMEI minus the last number.
Last I knew, Verizon was not blacklisting their 4G/LTE devices that were stolen/lost/etc. So the device should still work with an active SIM card... however, they always have the right to kill the SIM, or blacklist the device's IMEI from use on the network, just like AT&T and T-Mobile are now doing.
Also, it has come to our attention recently that Verizon is NOT marrying the IMEI and it's matching MEID in the system, so an IMEI may come back bad, but it's MEID may come back clean. So if the IMEI you are checking comes back as bad, or says to call Verizon, you may still be able to use the device, unless Verizon starts to blacklist them.
I appreciate the shared knowledge. Best forums on the net. Tried a Harley forum a few weeks ago. I still haven't received a single response. The android community rocks.
