    Default 4s verizon blacklist
    i have an iphone 4s, probably was lost. all simcards are working with full network signal, and text messages i can send and receive, 3g data is working too but
    I CANT MAKE AND RECEIVE CALLS!
    i checked with iunlocker.net and the report was
    - contract until 15.2.2014
    - blacklisted in Verizon USA
    and
    -next policy : unlock
    -locked by carrier: unlock
    -sim lock: unlocked

    I would like to use it Europe.
    Why text messages are working perfectly if its blacklisted?
    what can i do to make it working at least in one network in europe?
    can u unlock it?

    IMEI: 013048000122147

    You're asking to unlock it even though it's showing as unlocked already?

    As long as you know it's definitely unlocked then no, just keep as it is to use outside of the US..

    It wouldn't matter if the imei was blacklisted in the USA.

    Being that it is a Verizon phone, not all functions may work properly on another carrier. It may not be an issue with the device being blacklisted, it may be. But it sounds like it is just a failure with the carrier you are using and the device to communicate. I have had people bring an unlocked Verizon 4S and it won't text but can call and use 2G data on T-Mobile. I have also had a Verizon Galaxy S4 unlocked that can call but can't text or use any data on T-Mobile. So really, it depends on the hardware and it might just be an incompatibility with the carrier. The iPhone 5, 5S, and 5C do not appear to have those issues but the 4S does.

    if its black listed then i am sure its not unlocked. but if it is unlocked then it should receive and make calls.
    let us know what carrier name you see in about menu and do you see your number in phone menu?

    if its JB then try the furios mod or iphone 4s network patch.

    Even if it is unlocked, if it is blacklisted it won't work in the US. It will only work outside of the US, if anything. I work for a cell carrier, when people bring me unlocked phones they still can't pick up signal because it is in the blacklist database. It might read the carrier name but nothing will work, regarding calls, texts, and data.
