Cannot reinstate device

I recently stopped receiving service to my phone, unexpectedly. I looked at my account online, and apparently the device has been declared "Suspended (Stolen)". I still have the device, have never reported it stolen, and am unable to reinstate service from My account is/was paid in full (automated payments). But there is no option to renew / reinstate on the aforementioned page. In fact, there are no options at all, just information about my supposedly stolen device. Can someone please help me get my service back?

Check the IMEI online to see if it's really blacklisted.
