    Hi all.

    I'll keep this to the point and make it quick.

    Cousins iPhone 3G was lost so he called the insurance and he got a new iPhone 3G sent to him.

    The 1st iPhone 3G was found by his workplace but is blocked by O2.

    Is there a way to unblock that and get it working again?

    When I say get it working, I mean on an O2 chip again, not any other network.

    Many thanks advance/

    No same problem as me (except previous owner reported to insurance as accidentally damaged) - from what I see no there is no way to unblock the iphone. I'm looking at getting a new logic board just to geta different IMEI number

    If you go to the right place and have a little cash they will unlock it for you.
