    Completly remove a phone from national black list

    Hi everyone!

    I have a iPhone SE (first gen) that was stolen in the car a few years ago. When it happenes, we had it put on the national black list (IMEI ban).

    Few days after that, we where able to find the phone and we called Rogers to have it removed from the black list.

    Since then, the phoen works perfectly on the Rogers network but fails to register on any other Canadian network (Telus, Rogers-Ext [partner], etc.)

    What can be done to make it works everywhere ?

    In the past it didn't really bothered us that much but now I would like to sell the phone and selling a partially blocked phone is not really interesting.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks and have a happy new year!

    You need to call Rogers and ask then to unlock the phone. When you purchase a phone through a carrier it is locked to that carrier.

    Phones purchased through carrier in Canada are network unlocked.

    Network unlocked and Blacklisted are not the same thing. I am not sure that it can/will ever be removed from a Blacklist.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    The fact that it works on Rogers means it's not on the national IMEI blacklist. If it was, it wouldn't work with any carrier.

    The first gen iPhone SE came out in 2016. At that time, devices were carrier-locked. That hasn't been the case for devices sold late 2017 as the Wireless Code of Conduct was updated to require carriers sell devices unlocked as of December 1, 2017.

    You will need to contact Rogers to have the device unlocked to work with other carriers.

    The phone IS carrier unlocked.
    And it worked perfectly on all carrier.

    Then it got stolen and black-listed on the national blacklist.
    Then it was found again and unlock but the unlock seem to work only on Rogers network.
    Even the "partner" network (Rogers-Ext when in certain region in Canada) don't work anymore.

    If I put another carreir card in it it works for about 5 seconds then after that it disconnect from the network.

    Am I screwed ?

    I think you have a fancy paperweight that nobody can or will remove from a Blacklist. You could appeal to Apple directly but I can't guarantee anything. You would have to prove you were the owner of the phone and appeal to them that you later found the device. I don't think your carrier can help.

    Yeah, that’s what I think also.

    Well, its still works on the Rogers network but of no use on other network or Rogers partner network. I will keep it as a deluxe iPod touch eith 911 support lol.
