Re: sprint nexus s bad esn

The esn is only bad at Sprint for not paying a bill or reporting it stolen. Verizon won't check with sprint to see if it's bad (as far as I know), but they also probably won't let a sprint esn on their network (bad or not). I think metropcs or the like would probably be your best bet. I'm pretty sure I've read about people buying phones with bad esn's to use on metropcs...but again I have no real experience.

Re: sprint nexus s bad esn

I need to know why its bad, then I can tell you how/if it can be unlocked. Short story, if its because of non-payment, it cant be done. If its reported lost or stolen PM me for a solution.
