1-I remember someone told me before to unlock the phone before I call to file a lost/stolen phone, any idea why?
2-If I take out the sim card from the device before I call to file a report for lost/stolen phone, will they be able to blacklist the phone??
All I am trying to do is get a replacement note 3 for 135$ and sell the phone I have for 450-500$.
Thanks in advance
1) - NO clue never heard of this
2) Yup - IMEI will be blacklisted/
3) Impossible feat. - Once you report it stolen/lost, it gets banned from networks via the IMEI number and added to a stolen/lost phone Database.
Lastly, It's fraud man.. Not an advisable idea really.
