They can't kill a stolen phone. Well at least I'm not aware.

Maybe it needs reflashing with a new ROM. What phone is it?

its a nokia 6233 (:


If it's not older than 12 months, and you happen to have the receipt from the seller, go to a Nokia shop and ask for a firmware update! Might fix the problem then!

They can 'kill' a stolen phone, but the phone would still start up ok, just not connect to the network.

Return it to the seller - you should have a 7 day return period. Don't forget to insist they refund your postage.
