I have bought 2 iphones that are locked on Vodafone UK. I did not realise that they are also UK blocked/barred. Is there anyway at all I can unlock my iphones and use them as normal

Please help!

Can you return them?

Always verify the unlock status and check to make sure the IMEI isn't blacklisted prior to purchase of phones online.

You might be able to get around this by paying for unlocks, but you need to know the carrier they are locked to and there are no guarantees it will work since they are blacklisted.
