Read thru that thread, because the OP had the same problem. He reported it to the police. Long story short, the police got the seller to call AT&T to remove the phone from the blacklist.

Only the original owner can remove it from the blacklist no matter what you do, you yourself cannot remove it. So as the other guy said, contact the police if you have any info on who you bought it from then make a case against them. If they are the original owner then the police can make them give you your money back or remove it from the blacklist. If they are not the original then you my friend have an expensive paper weight.

I am closing this thread as the only answers have been given, and there is ALWAYS the temptation for trolling and/or illegal maneuvers or fraud discussion to occur when these threads languish.
