Unhappy Mogul with bad ESN

Someone told me that there are instructions here for changing an ESN? I was ripped off on Ebay and purchased an HTC Mogul with bad ESN. Can anyone help?

Oh yeah. I know it's bad. Unfortunately, this seller DID NOT tell it was a bad esn. I purchased it and have tried to activate it several times. I have Sprint.

Next time, call sprint before buying and ask them to check the ESN for you.

Yes, No doubt a lesson learned! At least they refunded the money! Just wish I could use the phone! It looks REALLY cool!

Hi, thanks for trying. That didn't bring anything up. Said it's expired or something?

Re: Mogul with bad ESN

I wouldn't bother with changing the ESN. If you ever have to bring your phone in for service, the sticker on the outside will not match the ESN on your account.

You got your money back, just buy another one, but get the ESN first.

Hmm... looks like the forum page went down. Odd. Sorry, but I didn't have a backup. Got the link from this thread (SuperCID and Change E*N of Mogul may also work for Touch / Vogue), so maybe post in there or PM user hetaldp to see if he can help.

FYI - the files from the post are located in post 36 of that thread (SuperCID and Change E*N of Mogul may also work for Touch / Vogue)...

Hope that helps.

If u clone an esn, u shouldn't take it in for service period obviously. Just take care of your phone. If it messes up then you're just screwed.
