IMEI unblock

[ Edited ]

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?

Nope, it can be only released from the original owner..

Re: IMEI unblock


The original purchaser / account holder of the blocked phone will need to contact Optus to request for it to be unblocked.
