If I were to buy a phone that's with Optus off somewhere say Gumtree and the IMEI got blocked after I purchased the phone, would I be able to unblock it with a proof of purchase given that it is the correct receipt of the phone?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Nope, it can be only released from the original owner..
The original purchaser / account holder of the blocked phone will need to contact Optus to request for it to be unblocked.
If you've purchased a device that has been IMEI blocked we will not be able to unblock it. This would need to be requested by the previous owner that had the device blocked.
