    if its reported stolen/blocked it wont give a signal when the sim is inserted of course this does not stop it being reported stolen after you buy,make sure you are buying from the sellers home or at least have his full details

    What about somebody reporting it a week after selling it ?

    Then it'll stop and only the registered owner can get the block removed...

    What's the best way to avoid that then ?

    I can't see how you can. If the owner calls the network he got the phone from and reports lost/stolen it'll get blacklist. There nothing you can do about that...
