Default Blocked phone

Hi
A friend in work gave me his HTC one X to practice on as he damaged it and claimed on the insurance, because of this, the phone was blocked. Is there a way of unblocking this? Not concerned if it has to be rooted, as I can read up from here and do that.

If not, then I'll just use it for spares .

It's a UK phone (if that makes a difference)

Thanks

Sounds like the imei has been blocked by the carrier. The only way to get it unblocked is if your friend contacts the carrier, which he probably won't because he would most likely be done for insurance fraud as he has claimed a new phone.
