Thread: Unblock iPhone - IP number barred?

  1. #1
    Default Unblock iPhone - IP number barred?
    My mate from work bought an iPhone off eBay and he can't get it to work because it says that the phone is blocked and he needs an IP number because it barred.

    This means nothing to me and he can't get hold of the seller.

    Can the phone be unbarred with a jailbreak and unlock or is it just the SIM card that has been barred?

    Or is the actual phone locked?

    Whats the best way to getting it unbarred?

    It might have been reported stolen or lost. You don't say where you're from or what carrier he's trying to use. The reason I say is that some carriers will blacklist phones once they've been stolen or lost to prevent fraud.

    I'm from the UK and the carrier will most likely be O2. However there is a slim chance it might be with Orange or Vodafone.

    I figured it would be the phone that might be blocked, just wondering if there was a way of bypassing it
