IMEI UNBlock from lost



can someone advise how long it takes a phones IMEI to be UNblocked?

I found my lost iPhone (lost over a year and a half ago!) and I want to get the IMEI UNBlocked.


ive called Telstra twice! 

unfortunately it’s not the SIM card that is blocked. this was replaced last year when the phone was first reported lost.

the phone is still not working and the IMEI is still blocked when checking on the AMTA website.


Does anyone know how much longer will it take?


also does anyone know when the IMEI is successfully unblocked what do I need to do with the iphone?

Does it need to connect to iTunes or can I use it straight away?

i have already turned the phone off and on several times


thank you
