Are you saying that your 4S was stolen during delivery? Unless you know the imei number of the device you can't really do much.

So you bought a stolen iphone 4s? If the EMI number has been reported stolen it might not get activated. Were you able to activate the phone?

Not like it would do you any good but it can be blacklisted by AT&T.
But the thief can still sell it as is, make up an excuse and get it replaced by apple with a clean white listed device etc....

It will be unlocked and sold overseas. You will never see it again and it will be used by someone else.
