Okey, that's what i was thinking it should happen when you block a phone.

So guy is just trying to fool me probably.

Is there a website where i can check if the IMEI is blocked or not?

NOPE. The problem is: If you'd buy the phone, and if the guy would claim it as stolen/missing - you'd be responsible.
The guy can go to insurer/police, return the new phone, claim that he found the old one and unlock it.... can you imagine that he'd do this?

Nobody's perfect, so no worry.
I just placed in single post all options to avoid mess.

Eheh that would be a problem... if i wasn't making the deal through ebay and haven't had prof that the guy sold me the phone.

Either way, different countries, i wouldn't have that kind of problems because of a phone.
