clearing the ESN means calling sprint and having it released from your account.

If you report it lost, number one, the person receiving the phone from you will not be able to activate it ,secondly if you file an insurance claim on this "lost" phone, and sprint finds out that you really didnt lose it, that could get you into some trouble with sprint, and ultimately they CAN AND WILL bill you for the retail cost of the replacement they send you.

If you report the device as "lost" you will not be able to have a clean ESN and the phone won't ever be able to be activated on any network. (Success beat me to the answer, he's totally on-point)

If you report it as lost and they find out it isn't lost or stolen it is a fraudulent claim and they could take legal action.

Re: CleaR the ESN OFF of my Mogul

dude, youre premise just doesnt make sense. Why are you going to report it lost or stolen? just call sprint and tell them that you want to remove the phone from your account. Or either let them know you will be selling the phone so that someone else can activate it.

If its slightly used, why not just sell it? maybe your not telling us everything.

Also, no the phone will not make or receive calls overseas. it is not a world phone

Re: CleaR the ESN OFF of my Mogul

I'm kind of curious as to why you're so desperate to dump this phone if it's only slightly used. I particularly agree w/ Success and thesmacker. If you want to get rid of it, just sell it. Filing a false insurance claim will get you in more hot water than it's worth.

thats swimming in shark infested waters my friend...take my word its not worth it cuz if the person you sell it to calls sprint and says "so and so sold me this phone" and then they run the esn and find out you reported it lost, then youre screwed by sprint, and will also have someone wanting to kickk your azz for sellin them a phone that cant be activated
