    I had it looked at in a mobile phone shop and they checked it over, updated the software, and it still wouldn't work. The IMEI number on the phone and the box, is registering different to the network provider. I don't understand all the details of this but they seemed to think someone has tampered with it somewhow. Is this what happens when its reported lost or stolen? Any ideas?

Samsung galaxy s6 g-sm920v imei repair


Samsung Galaxy s6 GSM 920v: IMEI Blacklisted Verizon:

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.

I have lost my LG mobile. Model No: LG-T375 and IMEI A: 354266-05-475355-2 and IMEI B:354266-05-475356-0. plz help me to get back.


If your mobile phone is lost or stolen you can inform your cell phone provider with your IMEI number. Your cell phone provider can then put the serial number on a shared database. This list stops this particular phone from registering on any network and will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM card is changed.
Your best bet is to ring your cell phone and hope the person who answers your cell phone will return your phone to you. If your cell phone is GPS enabled then it is possible to track, but you need to contact your cell phone service provider. Otherwise I suggest you contact your cell phone provider ASAP.

I bought sony ericsson satio on ebay. The phone has been unlocked but is BLOCKED. Can it be UNBLOCKED?


Simple answer to that is...

NO!!!
Sorry!

Blocked means it has either been stolen or lost and reported to the network. The network then block the IMEI number from ALL networks.

Sorry to say this but...You now have an expensive paper weight.
Unless you go abroad.
It should work in another country.

How can i block my stolen mobile phone even if its not registered but i have the IMEI number


you can report the phone stolen to the police..they will enter is into that national database and call your provider and let them know it was stolen.
if the phone is unlocked, all the person has to do is put a valid sim in it and the phone will work for them.
But if they get caught by the police at least it will be reported stolen.

N73:call not allowed


If the owner of the phone lost it or had it stolen, they can have the phone blocked, using the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number. If that’s the case the phone can only be unblocked by a repair shop.
The SIM card is blocked because the person who's phone it was, doesn't want to pay for calls made by someone else. So the SIM card is never going to work again.

Blacklisting:
This is not a security code, but it works like one! To help combat mobile phone thefts, the networks share a database of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) of mobile phones that have been reported stolen. Once a phone is on this list, it will not be allowed to use any of the networks.
This can be a risk if you buy a second-hand phone, because if it has been stolen, or if an unscrupulous seller makes an insurance claim after selling, the phone you bought in good faith may be permanently disabled.
Be very careful to check the source of a second-hand phone!

I cant get into my phone


This type of lock is called a Subsidy block. Carriers have placed these locks to keep phones that were lost or stolen from being reactivated. If you have your receipt, you can call the carrier for the unlock code. However, they will require information, such as the IMEI code and SIM card # to determine if this phone has ever been reported lost or stolen. That said, you will not get the unlock code until that carrier completes their research (48-72 hrs). That is only if the phone is not lost or stolen.
