    I recently purchased a 2nd hand galaxy s3 from this guy
    on craigslist. The meetup went smooth and the phone was
    fine. When I put in my sim, all my contacts showed up
    because I stored everything on my gmail and it synced,
    but when I tried to make a call, it said "network not
    registered" or something like that. I resetted the phone,
    and from then on, it kept going between "searching" and
    "no service". I called tmobile and found out that my IMEI
    number was blocked so when I googled what that meant,
    it said that the phone was stolen or something...

    Great. Now what? Is there any way that I can get around
    it? I don't exactly want to throw away $600....

    Yikes. I actually don't think there is anything you can do. I could be wrong, but I do know blocked IMEI's are tricky to get around. Do report back if you do figure something out though, would like to know!

    Re: galaxy s3

    Contact the person who sold it to you... maybe they just have deactivated it? Or the other scenario is you got ripped off.

    Always try to meet the person you are buying from if there is any uncertainty of the status of the phone. Better yet meet at a mobile store and get it checked before you buy it.

    This. It's always best to activate the phone at the store with the person who you bought the phone from with you. I have bought or traded several phones from Craigslist. All those times I have meet with the person at the cell phone store to activate the phone right in front of them. Just in case something happens. Hope you get things squared away. Let us know what happens.
