    The robber (and/or his customers), are very stupid since those phones will never activate.

    Don’t forget there is a large market outside of Canada where the blacklist has no effect.

  • No. Apple can lock them so they will never pass the activation. Not talking about an IMEI blacklist but Apple disabling the devices.
