    Default iPhone IMEI barred

    Hey i recently bought an iPhone in Hong Kong, ITS REAL. I bought this in one of those stores it worked fine in Hong Kong. But once i got back here in the UK its barred, i rung 02 as i use 02 pay as you go they told me the IMEI is barred. Didn't ask for a reason cause i wasn't too sure if the shop i bought it off stole this or whatever. So i guess the reason i'm posting this is cause i'm wondering is there anyway i can get this unbarred ?

    So there is a way to tamper with the IMEI, but just not in this country?

    Changing or modifying your IMEI is illegal in almost all countries and as such is not something that can be discussed on these forums. The only answer we can provide is for the person who initially marked the phone as lost or stolen to contact the carrier to request the IMEI blacklist be removed. Any circumvention of the IMEI protection is illegal most everywhere.

    Even just owning the tools to change an IMEI can result in a prison sentence in the UK.

    This is 100% incorrect, the IMEI blacklist is shared by all EU countries, so a phone blacklisted in the UK will eventually be blacklisted across the whole EU
