    imei blacklisted  but phone unlocked,  what do I do?


      I lost my phone, fortunately i had insurance so i paid around $170 for the new one and everything was fine.


      BUT after a few days the phone was found. So


      What am i suppose to do wth the  "lost" phone?



      I'm sure the carrier blacklisted the imei, but... on the otherside  the phone is unlocked.  But i haven't try to activate with any other carrier


      Can i just go to apple and replace to a new one? The phone is 7 months old. 



      If i do that... will i get a unlocked phone?  Will i get a phone locked to the same carrier?
