Unlock Blacklisted iPhone

If you are in US and your iPhone is blacklisted by AT&T but factory (officially) unlocked, resell your iOS smartphone. You can sell it to students, turist and other people who leave ut US.  Don’t worry that it is blacklisted. Foreign customers can use blacklisted AT&T iPhone in their home countries because it is blocked in the U.S. only. Just tell your customers the truth about your gadget.

Get a Refund

The first solution we’ll mention is asking for a refund. It is good for users who got their blocked iPhone using PayPal and are able to open a dispute/claim/chargeback. You can ship the gadget back to the seller, and PayPal will get your funds back. This might not work for you if you got the handset on the street or some other online site.

Take iPhone Apart and Sell It

If you don’t want or unable to do things we discussed above, you can take your gadget apart and sell its parts [logic board, dock connector, screen] separately. You will get some of the money you spent on it back.

Play Games, Watch TV Shows and Listen to Music

Since you are not able to make phone calls, exchange data or unlock blacklisted iPhone, you can turn it into your games console or an iPod. Listen to music, play games and enjoy your new entertainment device.
