    You would need to contact the service provider. A 'black listed' mobile or iPad is blacklisted on the basis of its IMEI - International Mobile Equipment Identity - number, not the actual SIM card or mobile number that's allocated to it. The IMEI is tied to the actual hardware of the equipment - i.e. the 'phone or iPad. So you can either try to authorise a SIM and see if it works OK or contact the service provider with the IMEI (it's in 'Settings', 'About').
