Haters - Stand by, please read before sending a s**t storm of really helpful comments
so Ive had my iPhone 4 for 8 months now, and my brother broke his phone, so he borrowed my iPhone for a couple of weeks so he could keep in contact with his friends, and 2 weeks ago he lost the phone at his office, which was great and super convenient for me... anyway so after a couple of days of searching i ring Vodafone up and report my iPhone lost, expecting to say "oh yeah,we will replace it for you" but they said they had sorted it out and was sending me a replacement sim (so kind of them) and as i had cancelled the phone insurance (which was £20 extra a month!!!) i wasn't liable for a replacement product. but on Monday he found my phone (yay) but i go to use it and oh, no service, i try and put the new sim in, nothing still, so i googled it and look, they blacklisted it. so i thought yeah thats cool, rang up Vodafone, they referrer me to the insurance company who said i cancelled it so they cant be f**ked, so now im stuck with £500 worth of tech on my desk and 18 months of my £35 a month contract left, ive seen a couple of blacklist hack things floating around but i am a complete novice to be fair so i haven't really any idea, but its worth a shot anyway !
if you could tell us how i can unblock my phone or how to go about doing it because i can find all the things i need to do once you tell me what i should be doing/looking for.
thanks in advance, hopefully you guys would have saved me £600 of wasted contract.
