How to clean a blacklisted IMEI?


Badge

I’m from Brazil and recently bought an iPhone XR that turned out to be blacklisted. Before the purchase, the seller sent me a picture of the phone with the IMEI on the screen, but it wasn’t the same device. The IMEI that he sent me was clean but I got a phone with a different (blacklisted) IMEI. I have proof of the payment and our WhatsApp messages as proof of the scam. Is there a way that i can get this IMEI cleaned? Please help me, it was very expensive to me and i don’t have money to buy another one. I already sold my old phone to pay for this one and i do a lot of phone calls in my work. I need a working phone ASAP!

Only the person who or company who blacklisted the phone can fix it.

It was blacklisted by T-Mobile

Then usually the phone needs to be paid off by the original owner. Tmobile blacklists phone because of non payment.
