    why is it blocked? there is a rumour circulating in the trade that most European and North American networks are going to pool their blocked imei lists later this year to stop the international trade in stolen phones.. They have been wittering on about it in the phone trade press for a while now.. Maybe this year they will do it.. maybe not.

    Our friendly Polish lads have stopped buying blocked pones in the last few months saying that is the reason..

    Could it be the IMEI code problem? Can you try to change it?
