    Default iPhones being blocked?

    So here in the UK there are lots of iPhones being sold cheaply due to them being blocked? Is there anyway around that? What is the reason they are blocked anyway?

    There is no way around this. It is impossible on an iPhone 3G or newer to do what you are asking. Owning the equipment to do this for other model phones is illegal in the UK and can result in a prison sentence.

    They are blocked because they are stolen, reported lost or damaged and then resold (fraud) or the owner has defaulted on their expensive plan/contract.
