blocked IMEI. what do I do now?

文本:

my boss bought a phone some time last year and about 2 months ago it stopped working. turns out Optus blocked the IMEI number and refused to tell my boss why.

he bought this phone 2nd hand of a guy some time last year and it was working for a few months. And sadly my boss bought it with cash so he has no proof of perches.

as far as i read there is no way to get them to unblock the IMEI, which is really really dumb. and changing the IMEI/ESN is highly illegal. i don't wanna go to jail but i still want to help my boss recover some of his losses.

because Optus refused to mention why it was blocked i am going out on a limb here and hoping that if it was a stolen phone they would request it be sent to them so it could be returned to the rightful owner.

now that that's out of the way i read it was still legal to sell a IMEI blocked phone provided it is stated it's IMEI blocked. the phone is in good working condition with no cracks on the screen either.

what parts could i sell? should i just sell it whole?
