I bougtht an iPhone off ebay 7 months ago. It said it had a clean ESN and when I looked up the IMEI before buying it said it was clear. I activated it with Xfinity Mobile back in November when I bought it and had no issues. I was checking for the first few weeks up until the second month and the IMEI still showed clean.
Everything was fine until I checked this week, 7 months later. Now it shows the IMEI is blacklisted. How can this happen? How was I able to activate it on my account with Xfinity Mobile and use it all this time? I am now outside the 180 days to file a paypal claim. Why didn't xfinity mobile say something? I could have gotten my money back.
Is there anyway to get it unblacklisted? What happens now? I just noticed it is blacklisted now so not sure how long it has been this way. I am still able to use the phone as of now. Will it eventually stop working? Ebay and paypal said I should call Apple and Xifinty and explain and show my proof of purchase to get it unblacklisted.
I'm super ticked at the seller and for Xfinity Mobile not notifying me at all that I've been using a blacklisted phone.
