    If she reported it stolen and claimed it's now property of the insurance company, where it should be returned, no you can't legally unblock "stolen" phones.

    It's possible to do but illegal. It could be used abroad though as it is

    If its been reported stolen and the insurance has paid out it now belongs to the insurance company.

    The network won't unblocked it as once it's checked they'll see it flagged as stolen and request it to be sent back.

    Put it in a brown bag, send it to the phone company.. saying "found this phone"

    And whatever you do, DON'T put your sim into and switch it on. It'll log on to the network with the sim and its IMEI and flag up on the fraud depts systems getting you call from them. . .

    Why is everyone stating the obvious? Pretty sure he/she knows that unlocking it isnt the morally correct thing to do, but I think they wanna know how anyway.

    Maybe send to mazuma if not? or CEx

    how, when you can't get incoming calls on a barred phone?
    I have been dealing with phones for over 15 years now and never known this happen - could be wrong i suppose as i don't deal in stolen phones, but would have thought i would have heard of it.

    Its pretty obvious not to ask on a shopping site with thousands of members how to defraud an insurance company, but the question was still asked!

    Mazuma or CEX won't take stolen phones.

    You mean illegal? You can unblock phones depends what the reason is, hence why he asked, however phones that have been reported stolen and claimed for are different.

    This thread is bodering on insurance fraud as it is, a phone that has been reported as stolen and claimed for, it's not even theirs anymore, I doubt people should or would be allowed to say how they can unblock a "stolen" phone, on here as it's illegal.

    Bordering? It is quite clearly just that. No point pointing out the obvious which 90% of you have done in thread.

    Indeed, but explain what did you think people should say, actually how to do it or who who would do it, baring in mind it's illegal, what do you expect exactly to be said?:roll:

    People on here will tell him how its done for sure, but no point every person repeating the person above... The site hardly cracks down 100% on illegal stuff anyway does it. Torrents etc.

    for information purposes did anyone actually find out how to unblock also if a blocked phone (blackberry curve 8520) was sent to the carribean would it work eg jamaica, barbados

    can someone please tell me how to 'illegally unblock' my blackberry bold 9700. i have tried ringing RIM to get it unblocked and they wont do it.
