How do I blacklist this cell phone?


The United States and Canada now have blacklists for stolen phones. Contact your service provider to get your phone put on the blacklist. Once on the blacklist, the theory is no service provider will activate it.


Good luck,

It is blacklisted because it has been reported stolen. Where did you get it Melissa?

Take the phone and yourself to the shop or mall kiosk of your cellphone carrier. Tell them the reason why your phone should NOT be blacklisted. Only they can remove it.

What does it mean for a GSM mobile device to be unlocked? What sort of locks are there? How is that different from Blocked? What is a Barred or Banned or Blacklisted cell phone? That is what this guide will look at. Blacklisted - If you phone is lost or stolen you can report the International Mobile Equipment Identifier (IMEI) to your carrier. They will broadcast that number throughout their network and make it impossible for the phone to connect to make a call. This known as blacklisting the phone. This is sometimes called a barred or banned device. In some areas the various carriers share the IMEI numbers of lost and stolen devices making it impossible to use the device on any carrier. In some countries this sharing is a requirement of law.
A blacklisted phone should be returned to the owner. This can be done by dropping it off to the carrier branded on the phone. Then it is up to them to return it to the subscriber. You can check with your carrier prior to purchase to see if a phone will activate on that carrier. You will need the IMEI from the seller, then you are a phone call away from knowing if you are about to buy a lost or stolen lightweight desk ornament.

How do I remove Samsung Galaxy S5 Active imei number from blacklist?


You will need to ask your cellphone provider. Normally blacklisted because it is stolen, or has been moved to another carrier when the previous carrier still owns the phone under an unexpired contract. This is the official line on this

You can check your IMEI number is Blacklisted in AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Telus, Sprint...Blacklist IMEI is lost, stolen or ineligible (Bad, Barred, Blocked, Financed, Under Contract) mobile phone. Always check blacklist before buy, sell or get phone.

Unlock Bad IMEI Phone that Blacklisted Blocked or Stolen

How can i get my blacklisted phone unblocked?


In short you can't. It is usually only blocked for 3 reasons.

1 It is stolen and the owner has had the IMEI number registered as stolen via his cellphone provider and the police.

2 It is stolen and the company that owns the phone has registered it as stolen. You don't own a phone unless you pay full price, or finish the stated contract.

3 the phone is on contract and you haven't paid your bill and the cellphone provider still owns the phone under contract.

The IMEI number is the ID of the phone and it is in the firmware of the phone. It can't be altered and until you resolve the reason why it is blocked, it will remain that way. The ID was added to the phone to stop the global problem of cellphone thefts.

My samsung core 2 was stolen few days ago, so,how i can find my mobile by tracing imei no?


Presume your only resource is to notify your Cell Phome service so your phone should blacklisted.
Bad news is that serious phone hackers can by-pass this blacklisting or even sell it to international gangs which "re-export" stolen and hacked devices
So your only hope is that it was stolen by some amateur thief.

I purchased a phone and activated it under my name and now I just found out the phone was stolen will I still be able to use it since it was activated before it was reported stolen by the owner or is it...


If the original owner notified his service provider and they have blacklisted the phone then it is blocked from being used in that country and useless.....if you use it outside that country it will work!

I bought a cell phone found out its stolen how do I get it to work


Sounds like the phone has been reported stolen to the national blacklist database (Central Equipment Identity Register) to prevent thief. Effectively the handset becomes absolutely useless and you are in possession of a high tech paper weight! :-))

I got SGH-E250 and it says Limited service no matter what sim i put in it. anybody can help me? please.. it's driving me nuts...


Hi,

You get limited service if your handset is blacklisted or if its locked to some other service provider,so try unlocking or useing the same sim given along with the phone..

This may solve your issue..

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance..

I recommend you contact your service provider.



Blacklisted or Barred Handsets

What is it all about???
A phone may be blacklisted (or barred) for many different reasons, but the most common reason is that it has been reported either lost or stolen! It is only the networks (Orange, T-Mobile, O2, Vodafone etc) that have the facility to blacklist a handset.

If you are unfortunate enough to either lose or even worse have your phone stolen you should report it to your service provider (your network) immediately!
Your service provider can then blacklist the handset so that it can no longer be used to make or receive any calls. The networks do this by adding your phones serial number onto a national blacklist database (Central Equipment Identity Register). Effectively the handset becomes absolutely useless and the thief is in possession of a pretty paper weight! :-))


So How Does Blacklisting Work?
Every mobile phone has a unique serial number. This serial number is called the IMEI number (International Mobile Equipment Identity). It can normally be found underneath the phones battery and it is 15 digits long.

Now each time you switch your phone on or attempt to make a call the network systems check the IMEI number of the handset you are using. At this point the IMEI number of your handset is cross referenced with the Central Equipment Identity Register. If the IMEI number of your handset is on the CEIR then the network will either:

1) Refuse to send a signal to your phone (No signal strength at all)

2) OR WILL supply a signal but will not allow any outgoing or
incoming calls.

If your IMEI number is on the CEIR your handset is blacklisted and therefore useless.
