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.
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.
You can contact your cell phone provider to do this, or log into your cell provider account online. Or you can use the blacklist (included on some phones) if your blacklist is not a stock feature of phone, you can download a blacklist app from market.
a blacklisted phone is a stolen phone,and the owner reports it to the service provider to block it after confirming the requesting client is the owner they verify and block so it may work in onother country other than where it was stolen from,but its against the law to aid things of that sort,but if you change the imei #,serial # it can work in your country
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.
