Alltel to Verizon, Any chance?

So, I bought a cheap diamond to replace my old XV6900(Vogue) off ebay. I bought an Alltel branded one since they can be unlocked and I figured I had a good chance the ESN was already on Verizon's network. Well, I tried activating it online with no success. "The phone associated with the ESN/MEID you entered cannot be activated." I have not unlocked or reflashed the phone. Is there any chance of getting this on Verizon? I don't like the idea of calling customer service cause I dont want to bring any attention to the sweet deal I have, but if my chances are good I will. I guess if there is no chance, I will sell it on ebay as an Alltel only phone. *chuckles* Perhaps I will do the past owner a favor and delete all the nude/hardcore pics and videos of his girlfriends before I resell it.

Anyways, I appreciate any insight on the subject.

LMAO! he left those? that is so funny.

Ive heard sucess stories on Verizon with an Alltel phone, but its a matter of getting a good rep on the phone to help you. Once activated, youll have to figure out how to get data working, which usually requires a call to a verizon tech to assist. Just call and see, then call again if that rep won't do it. You can't do anything with that phone without a rep's help.

Re: Alltel to Verizon, Any chance?

Robsta-You know what makes it even funnier? He deleted all his contacts, email settings and text messages but somehow missed dozens of obscene photographs and a even a couple videos.

I guess I will give calling a try. If I have no luck getting it activated, any ideas on which way to flash it to make it the most appealing on ebay? Maybe I could even turn a small profit since I only paid $100 and its in pristine condition.

Re: Alltel to Verizon, Any chance?

i wouldnt see why they wouldnt help you. they just transitioned from alltel, the phones should still work. one thing you dont want to do is tell them you bought the phone off ebay, i hear they dont like that very much. I usually just say i got it from a friend

Re: Alltel to Verizon, Any chance?

I tried calling Verizon, but no joy. So, what networks can this Alltel phone be used on? I am guessing Sprint wouldnt activate either, so Cricket and who else?

Verizon should work. I find it odd they wouldn't. Try calling tech support.

Re: Alltel to Verizon, Any chance?

I actually talked to tech support, no joy. I have read threads from other people also having no luck getting Verizon to activate Alltel phones. I elected just to put it back up on ebay and hope I can get all my money back on it.
