Re: Blocked IMEI


Blocked IMEI

I have two AT&T accounts on one account my son lost his iPhone7 phone, at first I wanted to buy him a  used phone from a pawnshop so I got a new sims card and activated it using my iPhone 8 phone. I could not find a used or refurbished phone for cheap so I had to file an insurance claim. Assuron had a list of phones that my son had used instead of picking the iPhone7 I picked the iphone8 I informed Assuron of the mistake but they still sent an iPhone8 and blacklisted my iphone8 that I used to activate my son's sim card. I have contacted ATT several times. How can send this phone back to Assuron and get the correct phone so my phone can get off the blacklist?
