    There's nothing you or the person that you bought it from can do. Try to get your money back.

    we can tell u about countless members comming in here complaining about a esteem they bought from craiglist or from the streets for alot of them they bought the esteem without the uicc card or what the noobs called the sim card which it isnt so. then they ask where can they purchase a uicc for the esteem the short answer is you cant. atleast not for the esteem. so basically what you got there is a expensive paper weight the person wont return your call beacause they know your gonna want your money back so they act like they dont notice you calling all day.

    As n4zty said earlier, each UICC card is dedicated to each phone. You cannot replace the card, and EVEN IF YOU COULD, the ESN is still bad, and cannot be activated.

    There's a reason you can't get a hold of the person who sold you the phone.

    Sorry to be so blunt, but that's just the way it is.
