Of course your imei will have been blocked, if you dont pay the bill, the phone is blocked from using any sim, all you can use it for now is an ipo. Unless you can find someone in a foreign country to swap it with you

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.

Can you unlock my network for my HTC please my imei:3522**********5 please

Nope we can't. Your phone belongs to a Cell provider and they have locked the SIM so you can't use it for whatever reason (new phone, stolen, unpaid bill, prepaid run out). The PUK code (Personal Unlocking Key) can only be provided by the service provider.

Can you tell me how to unlock this phone i got it and i guess it has a unpaid bill so its been lock xan get in

te lock will be a PIN number requirement or a PUK code requirement
if there is an unpaid account you would not be able to connect through your provider
I suggest that you go to your service provider shop, may have to purchase a new sim card so that your account can be opened and have the service provider help you get it working

Pay account

If the contract has, indeed, been fully canceled, then once you pay the account in full, the phone *most likely* is your personal property (I say most likely because without knowing the terms and conditions of your contract, I can't say who has what rights, so please understand all my advice is based on generalities and for the best answer possible, contact your service provider). What that means is that you can take that phone and use it to begin service on a separate account, which typically means you don't even need to sign a new contract. Like I said previously, though, it's best to contact your provider directly.

Hope that helps!

My mobile phone together with the sim card number got stolen.what will i do so the thiefty can not open my mobile phone

Please do the following:
1. Call up your SERVICE PROVIDER and cancel the SIM. Ask them to issue a new SIM as the phone was stolen. Also if you can give your IMEI code of the phone it can be traced.
2. Leave a message on the phone before it is cut off asking that it must be returned to your address-
3. Please give a complaint to the CYBER CELL of the polic dept. with the document proof of your phone stating it was stolen, in case you can claim for insurance or trace the phone.
Hope you get lucky.

I have trying to send an email to for several times to answer my problem. Here's the problem, I cancelled the order that you are billing me on Dec.5. Please let me know why I'm...

Hi there!
Fixya is not eBay and I will help you on how you can contact eBay.
Please use the links below, it will redirect you to my tips and tricks on how to get eBay's phone number. The email address you have posted above is no longer available since eBay is now using a different web format.
Link 1 : eBay phone number Link 2: how to get eBay's number
But if you already cancelled the order, you will need to contact the seller and ask the seller to file the cancel transaction case for you. Then you will just need to agree to it, once you agreed to the cancel transaction you can then just delete the item in your account.
All buy it now's, bids are binding and it depends on the seller on whether he/she will file the cancel transaction for you or else will file the unpaid item case.
Hope this helps!

By the way, the eBay rep will just tell you to contact the seller. That's for sure if you haven't received the cancel transaction case from the seller.

Have a good one mate! Please check my tips and tricks for more eBay-good-to-know things.
