7-11 Speakout IMEI

Newbie question -- I'm activating a nano sim for my iPhone 6 and have found in another thread that some people choose to just put "0's." What's the benefit of/reason for this? I've done a bit of googling and it looks like adding the actual IMEI would be better because then the phone can be blacklisted if it's stolen. Or I missing something? :confused:

Pretty sure it's just for activation purposes but as soon as you put an active sim in the phone there network will pick up the imei regardless.

Yes, it is only for activation purposes. Afterwards, you can put the sim in another phone if you want and it will work.
