    Default Very confused about IMEI!?!?!

    so will a t-mobile S5 with bad IMEI work with AT&T network?
    Let's say the Tmobile S5 had clean IMEI at the purchase, but I unlock it and use it with AT&T network.
    Few weeks later, for some odd reason, IMEI gets blocked, will it still work with AT&T or is it only blocked for T-mobile?

    I don't believe it will work.

    If the IMEI is blocked by one carrier than that device will be useless on ALL carriers. The IMEI gets blocked when the device is reported lost / stolen. I find it odd that you would ask about it getting blocked for "some odd reason."
