    Hi All


    I bought an old Iphone of a guy in the pub for very cheap price. Its a bit scuffed up etc but works (at least partly)


    Have the no network issue so think it might be blacklisted. If it is at least I have an ipod!


    Sure I read somewhere about a database where you check the IMEI to see if its carrier blocked. Does anyone know where I can find this or provide a link?


    Thanks

    Two scenarios:
    1 - If the iPhone is LOCKED to some carrier* just put a SIM card that specific carrier.
    2 - If the iPhone is FACTORY UNLOCKED* just put a SIM card from ANY carrier.
    If you dont get any service with the SIM card inserted on either the scenarios* your iPhone is blacklisted.
    Nevertheless* if it does work and if the iPhone came overseas (from your accent* I take you like in the UK)* then its possible it still might be blacklisted in some other country.
    One last thing* go to SETTINGS > GENERAL > ABOUT and tell us what you see in the NETWORK* CARRIER and MODEL specifications.
