Hello. You can't do anything about the IMEI being Blacklisted from Verizon. That phone is deemed stolen. You bought stolen goods
You could report the Seller to your local police to tell them that you were tricked into buying stolen property.
The only thing you can do with this phone is use it with another cellular provider SIM card. Most Verizon Samsung Galaxy Android phones are already Factory unlocked. You won't be able to get perfect reception on other carriers but you can use it with AT&T or T-Mobile's SIM cards. No Verizon or Sprint though.
You will need to contact the original carrier (verizon) about this they have to do a factory coverage reset then(they should be able to do this wireless than take the device to a at&t store and tell them you'd like to switch the phone over to at&t.AT&T may be able to do all the work but i believe verizon will need to wipe their coverage before at&t can do this which they may also contact verizon and do all the work for a certain fee its harder to change over phones without a sim card so fee may not be cheap if they do all the work.I have never switched over a verizon phone so this all I can really tell you but I recommend T-Mobile I never loose signal with them I have traveled cross country and through the country side of states and even in warehouses I have yet to go below 2 bars EVER with t-mobile their coverage is amazing and strong towers plus att lies about coverage from what my friends say 1 in particular used to live in alaska asked att about areas that they cover he didnt get great coverage and even here his coverage in places the map shows good are not.Hope this helps
I honestly wouldn't bother trying t unlock as it's an old CDMA style phone that cant'e be used on many carriers as there's no WCDMA/HSPA or GSM support according to Verizon and LG. You'd be better off looking for an Motorola Droid 4 XT894 from Verizon. Unlocked, it supports GSM, HSPA and can still work on Verizon in CDMA mode, hence a world-traveller phone with lots of features, powerful, slide-out qwerty keyboard, and can run Android 4.0.3. Check it out at http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_droid_4_xt894-4418.php. You can usually pick one up on eBay for about $50 USD, get it unlocked for about $5-15 USD, and you're set with a great phone for world travel without breaking the bank. A very overlooked device indeed!
