Lightbulb [Q] Any Way to Enable Mobile Data?

Hi, I recently purchased a S3 from an eBay seller, and I discovered after going to the T-Mobile store that my phone is disabled from using its mobile data because the previous seller did not finish paying off the phone. The only options they gave me were to either buy a new phone or work it out with the seller. I was wondering if there was any workaround to this; I am unable to call, text, or use any data on mobile, but am able to do all that on Wi-Fi.

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

DONATE TO ME
Blacklisted phones are just that. No better than a Mp3 player with Wi-Fi.

Sorry not able to help. You have been scammed. There really isn't much that can be done.

You can unlock the phone and use it with any other carrier, or buy a t-mobile go for $70/MONTH WITH UNLIMITED EVERYTHING, i THINK IT SHOULD WORK.
