    Default Buying used phone

    I want to buy a used iPhone 4s but I was reading someone's account of discovering their phone was blacklisted after a few weeks, and what I've seen says that can't be undone. How do I protect myself from this when buying a used phone?

    Get the IMEI number of the phone prior to purchase, call the carrier, and request a check against the IMEI to ensure the device isn't reported lost or stolen. If the person you're buying from will not allow you to do this, do not buy the device. There is no legal way to circumvent the IMEI block so please do not ask.

    A check with the carrier is simple, I do this bunches of times when my family wants me to help them get new phones. Do you know which carrier it is?
