No. You received a nonfunctional device, and as such, the item doesn't meet the listing description (assuming that it didn't say that it was broken/blacklisted/etc), so you're covered under eBay's guarantee. If you pay for shipping yourself, however, eBay will not reimburse you for it, so you need to push the seller to issue you a full refund including shipping, or you should file a dispute with eBay.
When an item doesn't match the listing description

When an item is returned to the seller

The buyer must return the item in the same condition in which it was received.

The seller is required to accept the return at the same location specified in the listing.

The cost of return shipping is the seller's responsibility. For return of items with a total cost of $750 or more, we require signature confirmation.

The seller pays for any customs charges on the returned item.

The seller can provide a return shipping label to the buyer.

When a return shipping label is made available to the buyer and/or the buyer chooses to purchase a separate label, the buyer won't be refunded by eBay for the cost of the label.

After confirming that the item was returned to the seller, we refund the full cost of the item and original shipping via PayPal. We require the seller to reimburse us for the amount. When the buyer arranges shipping or picks up the item, we may not refund the cost of original shipping or pickup.

if he already refunded u then ur not required to return anything. ebay makes the seller pay for return shipping unless its ur fault like u just want to return something u dont want. being that the seller probably knew he was scamming u he was probably hoping the phone would work long enough that the window for disputing would close but since it didn't he opted to refund u and not have to pay for the return shipping.

Just curious before buying it didn't you check the IMEI number to see if it was blacklisted?
If they thumb you down I will up it just because

It can still get blacklisted days/weeks/months after you bought it.
