Grab a SIM card

Not good news, sorry. Your phone won't run on our network.

But don't fret! We've got a great selection of phones for all tastes and budgets.

Check out the range

Please enter a valid IMEI number. The IMEI number should be 14 digits long. You can find it by dialing *#06# on most phones. If that doesn't work, open up your phone, pop out the battery and look on the label beneath it, in the battery compartment, or look on the label on the box your phone came in. You can also look in your phone settings.

On most phones, you can get your IMEI number just by dialing *#06# or checking your phone settings.

No luck? You might also find the number on a label in your mobile's battery compartment, or on the box it came in.

What else you should know

You'll need a Spark SIM card to connect to the network.

Our 3G network uses the 850mhz and 2100mhz frequencies. If your phone isn't compatible with either of these frequencies, it's likely to receive limited or no reception, meaning calling, texting and data will perform poorly or not at all.

Please check your phone or device specifications to ensure it is compatible.

The information in our IMEI checker is indicative only, and doesn't guarantee that your device will connect to our network. Also, please be aware that some services may be different or unavailable with a device that was not sourced from Spark.
