It depends on what it was blacklisted for. Call the original carrier of the phone and they can provide you with more details

This is why you don't buy cheap phones online. You would've been better off not doing that.

Anyways, try to get some information as to why you were imei blocked. The only times i can really think of a consequential imei block is a stolen phone..

Did you buy on eBay?

If so, open a dispute case.
