Hello, today 16th april 2012, i called up the AT&T service centre. Firstly they asked me my phone number to which my response was “I don’t know what is my phone number” . Then they asked my IMEI number. Then after that, that lady said, i will be getting an email in 5-7 days with instructions.  What does this mean ? Can anybody make me understand what exactly that lady meant .

Answer :

You will get the email instructions to unlock your iPhone which will take few days to process . The email should look like this . After the unlock is complete you will use the iPhone with your Indian carriers like Airtel , Aircel , BSNL , Vodafone and Idea cellular .

To put it short, this is not a stolen or lost iphone 4 , rather I had a iphone 4 that was lost, I reported it missing, then had a replacement from the insurance. 4 weeks later my phone turns up *happy days*. Now the old one is IMEI barred, the insurance company do not want it back as its worthless to them. I know it is “possible”, but How can I Edit the IMEI Number ? So it can be used again? Basically can I use my old Blackberry 9700 IMEI number and transfer that to the old iphone 4? . Any help would be great!

Thanks , Jamie

So I bought this iPhone on eBay for a very low price and the owner didn’t know what the problem was on it because he also bought it on eBay. When I put in a card from a carrier the iPhone doesn’t recognize it but then I tried it with almost every carrier and finally with one of them it said no service. So my question is , is it locked or is the imei blocked , also the previous owner had a gevey chip in it.

PS I checked some sites and they all said that the imei was unblocked but I don’t know if I can trust those sites .
