Bought this off of someone at the local market the other day and when I got home it just so happened to not let me ring out, so I took it to a private mobile phone repair shop earlier who said it sounds like it's been blocked.

So I've decided I might aswell make some of my money back on it and sell it for parts/to use as a camera/or even if you would be able to get it unblocked and use it.
It's in good condition but it's just the handset, may be able to chuck in a charger if I can find out lying around.

It's currently on O2 I think but also accepts T-Mobile sim's I think.

Not sure if it's against the rules to sell a blocked phone, just let me know if it is, thanks.

what does it mean its blocked?
Mate i had a n73 blocked and put it on the american one and postage to america and some european countries only apart from britian! postage £20 and got almost the full value for it!
Means it wont work in this country at all.
Probably been lost/stolen to be honest and then sold on.
Hence the reason it wont ring out.
means it been blocked by the network for non paying of bills or reported as stolen!
what does it mean its blocked?
why wont it work in this country, is it like a credit card being blocked?
Been blacklisted I think, not 100% just going by what the bloke in the phone shop said. Could just be that I was using a Virgin sim card and instead of having Virgin mobile it had T-Mobile on the start screen/desktop.
if it's blocked means it's been reported stolen or lost and as such is illegal to own possess or sell

however having pointed out the legalities, blocked phones are only blocked IN THE UK, and people are selling them abroad, but seriously if you have it, get your money back or report it to the police if they refuse
the phone has been remotely locked by the network
its beenr eported lost or stolen so they have blocked it
you cannot ring or text with the phone unless you can get it unblocked,
i think its also illegal to try to unblock it (don't count me on it tho)
