    Yes u can. Do u bought it O2 store or in the market? If u bought O2 store unlock form is available in o2.co.uk website. If u get from market doesn't matter where, check ebay O2 unlock, goos seller with hight reputation.

    Do not. Ever. Pay for an unlock.

    Check the jailbreak forum. You can jailbreak and unlock a 3G to work on any carrier.

    I don't think you can change the IMEI. So why would they block it? is it stolen, owing money? I don't understand why they would block it? We don't have that here in Canada. Can you get intouch with the person who sold it to you.

    Try calling the company. If they've barred the IMEI, they'll have a record of who it belongs to.

    Yeah it kinda sucks because the person obviously lost it and if they're on contract they'll prob just renew and get a replacement. So the phone company will either take the phone and use it as a refurb replacement. When you found it were you able to get into the phone? I believe in Karma so for me unless it was some secret prototype they left while camping I'd just try to return it, especially if you wont be able to use it anyway.
