    I bought a blacklisted phone and I can't even get in touch with the person that sold it to me anymore. Does anyone know a way to bypass the activation somehow?

    It can't be done sorry. Next time you buyba phone from someone meet them at a carrier store so they can verify the phone is clean.

    No. You have a paperweight. You cannot get around the blacklist, nor can you bypass any activation lock.

    And I believe would be against this forum's rules to discuss this.

    Where did you buy the phone? Many websites such as eBay and the like have buyer protection protocols implemented to keep you from being scammed. PayPal also offers this kind of protection. Check with the method you bought the phone through to see if they have some kind of buyer protection in place...if not, you're SOL.
