In general terms, when a phone is blacklisted it is a permanent report that won’t be removed automatically, the only way to remove it is manually by contacting the phone carrier (Verizon, T-Mobile, etc.) to clarify the situation or using third-party services like SafeUnlocks.

Anyway, there are certain processes that take place when a device is reported, so depending on the resolution of the issue, they decide whether the phone should stay locked or not, for example:

  • If the device was reported stolen or lost, the report is established permanently unless the original owner gets back the phone and asks the carrier to remove the lost or stolen report from the blacklist.
  • If the device was involved in any illegal activities, the carrier must wait until the financial institution finishes the fraud investigation (the device stays blacklisted until they complete the investigation) to determine if there was a fraudulent transaction or not… If there was, the phone will be permanently locked.
  • If the carrier blacklisted the device because it was financed in installments but the client didn’t fully pay the debt, the device will be blacklisted until they finish paying for it, if not, it will stay locked.
  • If there are outstanding payments on the account associated with the device, but the account holder gets up to date, the carrier will automatically remove the blacklist report (this is the only case where it gets done automatically).

Everything depends on the reason why the phone was blacklisted, but in case you happened to buy a blacklisted phone (a second-hand smartphone), the best option is to just remove the lock with SafeUnlocks.
