Good for parts or to use abroad useless in thiscountry though.

90% of blacklisted phones are stolen, good for a trip to prison if you buy or use one.

As stated, they can be used abroad, the blacklisting only works in the UK, nowhere else.

They are not just blocked in the UK. It's usually Europe wide at a minimum.

you'll find if the network operates in other countries, including partnering companies, the IMEIs are on their blacklist.

Stay safe and stay clear of these, you'll only regret at a later date. Handling stolen property is not appreciated by anyone unless you are the crook selling them

I bet the thieving scum that sell these know how to remove them from the blacklist though.

The only way is to edit the IMEI which is not possible with every phone
