    Beg to differ with respect - PINS are not blacklisted, but the IMEI's certainly are. I know a good bud at my carrier who works tech support, and he told me that once an owner calls in to report a lost or stolen handset, the IMEI is blocked until the owner declares it found. After about 30 days or so, the IMEI is blacklisted as potentially stolen - that device will not work on the same carrier unless there is some way of changing the firmware in the device and implanting a new IMEI in the carrier's database. That's way too much hacking for anyone; especially since the IMEI's are audited and can only exist as shipped in a device from the mfr.
    in the US ive only heard of CDMA phones being blacklisted seeing as u need to call in to have your phone activated... GSM on the other hand u just pop ur sim card in and i believe or atleast remember hearing that blacklisting on GSM is illegal in the US for some reason... lol i know in Europe its a whole different story, they can/do blacklist GSM
