keyword there is USED to. verizon, sprint, and cricket share stolen ESN lists. Even if a stolen phone is returned to the carrier it is just recycled for parts but the ESN is blacklisted for good.
Incorrect. I remember Valuetech Outsourcing phones with CHIP history's of being recovered several times. I dont know who you are getting your info from but that information is not factual. Carriers refurb those phones all day long. I'll check today with a known lost VZW ESN I have on an extra account
Ok so im getting the iphone 4s sometime this week with a bad verizon esn from a friend, can this be used on cricket? I've seen eBay ads that offer the flash. Also I saw that Virgin mobile offers plans for iPhone 4. Could I flash it on Virgin mobile?
