Hi all

I purchased a brand new iPhone 8 plus in September 2018 from a company on ebay. It had 1 yr apple warranty and i was told it was a replacement phone. £600 but ebay had a offer so i paid £550. All was good until Tuesday where i noticed signal issues. Now ive spoke to ee and they have told me my phone is blacklisted because the original owner was supposed to return the phone and thats all they could say due to dpa. Now today my phone has been properly blacklisted no signal at all.

I know there are unbarring services for around £50 anyone had any experience with this? Is there anything else? I am going abroad soon to turkey maybe i could visit an apple store or something? Also i am locked to EE.

Thanks in advance
