    It may be unlocked but you'll still have no service. An IMEI block is permanent and changing the IMEI is illegal and impossible. I don't know what basis in reality these other replies have

    ^right. But technically nothing can unlock it. The phone is disabled. You can't even activate it to get to the springboard.

    If the phone is disabled, nothing will work. Jailbreak won't work, official activation won't work, unlocking won't work, nothing. I know this because someone brought me a stolen/lost phone and I didn't know. Spent an hour working on something that won't budge.

    Actually, you'll be able to get it to work in the USA/Canada if that's where the OP is from. We don't have the same rules as in Europe where a blocked IMEI in one network results in blockage of all networks.
