This is how it works, i've done this many times before.
Contact the seller and tell him of the problem and ask for a refund.
2nd if he refuses a refund than you log into your paypal and go to the "Resolution Center" and file a claim. Paypal will investigate by contacting him and you for details.
At this time he will know you're serious about getting a refund because if paypal sides with you they will pull the funds from his account to refund you.
This guy needs both his paypal account and ebay account active so this could devastate his selling and collecting rights. If he's selling blacklisted phones than that violates ebay rules and he could get booted for it whether he knew it or not. The responsibility lies with the seller to verify these things unless otherwise noted in his auction.
As far as shipping the item back to him it should be at his cost and only after you have received your refund. NEVER send anything back before you're satisfied as this is your physical proof that he sent you a blacklisted phone.
