Oh dear, oh dear.

No.. It won't work unless you're in certain parts of the USA.

The IMEi database is subscribed to by every european mobile provider. If your mobile is in there, its barred everywhere in the UK an europe and some of the USA. Some carriers in the USA do not subscribe.

As for asia etc, who knows...

Teeth alert

Sell it and pass on the pain

I believe it will work abroad, and poss on diff networks other than the one it was on when barred. I managed to buy (v.naive) a blackberry and it was barred. Wasn't on police register so they had no interest but O2 wont undo the bar so my baby daughter now has an expensive toy as police said to take it back but in hindsight i realised i'd been 'done'. Be very careful buying as i checked my sim got network and used the internet & texted ok. Didn't realise couldnt call until i spoke to O2. Also people sell phones and report stolen weeks later so your checks like call/text etc may be ok when buy but they may stitch you up. From (bitter) experience play safe for your own sanity!!

Italy and Nigeria are probably the two best places to go for. Make sure you post to a registered address, though.

Hi, fraud is 100% legal, so of course it will. Good luck

all stolen and blocked phone, donst matter its iphone or android will work in Asian countries, not sure about USA etc,

It happened to me I bought iphone 5 on Vodafone network 2 weeks ago it worked perfectly until 3 days ago it was blocked I called Vodafone n they said it was stolen I gave name of guy I bought from(luckilý I asked to see id when I bought it ) they checked n said he reported it stolen , had a nightmare but they looked into him n saw he'd had 3 prior phones 'stolen' have given me benefit of doubt but say nothing they can do n told me to "sell it on ebay, try get some money back "the guy is banned from Vodafone n they are pursuing him for remainder of contract fees ,how do you guard against that ?? Ya just can't
