Unlock Samsung S8 plus from At&t.

Hello.

I`ve bought on Ebay Samsung S8 plus with bad esn. You could see a lot here http://www.ebay.com/itm/172796671096

I live in Ukraine (Europe). I`ve tried to insert my local operator (Vodafone) sim card - but it`s locked to AT&T. I`ve also tried to unlock via AT&T site but I got a message that "Your device was reported as lost or stolen."

Is there any way to unlock a phone?

My IMEI: [edited for privacy-please do not post personal or unique information such as but not limited to full names, employee ID numbers, email addresses, phone numbers, account numbers, etc.]

Sorry for my English.

You will need to have the person that reported it stolen, call it in and say it isn't stolen.  Good luck with that, you never know why they reported it stolen.

Is there is another way to unlock? How I could find that person?

There is no other way.  Just think of you calling in your phone being stolen, would you want the person that stole to unlock it?  The only person that could possibly fix this is the person that reported it stolen.

Am I right that I couldn`t find that person via At&t? 

So even in Europe I couldn`t unlock the phone to use with local operators?

Nope, I would ask the person that you bought it through eBay, but besides for that I don't know how you would be able to find them.  Sorry, but you can't get it unlocked to use it over there.

Re: Unlock Samsung S8 plus from At&t.

The phone was specifically sold as "for parts" because it can't be used as a phone anymore.  

It will never be unlocked.

It will not be removed from the blacklist.
