Who can lift an IMEI block?

If a phone's IMEI is blocked who can lift it? Does it have to be the network that applied the block or can a shop/website do it?

Hm... not sure. In Ireland Vodafone let you set a password when you let your phone IMEI block. Should you recover the phone, you just ring customer care with that password, and it'll be reactivated within a 'couple of hours'. I s'pose they all have their own routine, so don't take my word. If in doubt ring your customer care/tech support ;)
