    Default do lost phones get blocked? and is there a workaround for this?
    Hi all

    recently i received a replacement iphone3g for a handset that i lost, however i have now found the origional iphone3g and was wondering if it is still useable? i reported the phone as lost to o2 but have not turned the phone on since finding it so not sure if it has been blocked or anything. Do they block phones? and if so is there any way of unlocking it again

    The IMEI is blocked. And you cant change it.

    couldn't you just unlock it and use it on tmobile or whoever else competes with the provider you got the phone from.

    the exact same thing has happened to me and I phone o2 who advise because I have made a claim on the lost phone they wont be able to unbarr it for me, which is a bummer cause my mrs was looking forward to have my old handset when it was handed back to me

    It's a good idea prevents people from "losing" their phones to get a new one..
