nope, rom flashing is just rom flashing, won't help, you need your ESN added, which if I'm not mistaken, verizon is no longer allowing ESN's to be added to their system, I can be mistaken of course, but I am pretty sure that's the case.

Re: sprint to VZ? esn?

well like i stated in op, i have a current verizon(alltel) phone that works, it is a POS phone. So im willing to trade the esn's - is this easy enough to do? i mean can someone point me in the right direction? simply flash using a vz rom, then change esn and good to go? i mean what all do i have to do? i already bought the phone, should be here sometime this week.

also, is cooking roms still what is done or what? I've been outta the loop for a while hence why i avoided the droid, however ill be gettin the new droid come this fall when my contract needs renewal.

Re: sprint to VZ? esn?

o. well. however you are saying it is possiable? or should i cancel order, or just resell locally on the craigs?

why is it illegal if both esn's are mine?

or are the stupid carriers EULA merely allowing you permission to borrow the esn, however they still own it?

Re: sprint to VZ? esn?

We do not allow discussions related to ESN cloning or "swapping". Please take a moment to read the site rules.

As stated previously, I don't think Verizon just allows you to add ESN's to their database.

No more talk of ESN cloning or I am going to close this.

Re: sprint to VZ? esn?

yu can try and call VZN and have the ESN added to there DMD. quote there user agreement about allowing any CDMA phone on there network and it might get it done. i did it with an altell phone in 08 but i have heard it go both ways with others trying. have the customer service agreement in front of you so you can quote it word for word. just tell them you want that ESN added to there DMD and that you understand that VZN can not gurantee that all the features will work. you will have to get the $29.99 data plan added to your account. if you get a tech that is in a good mood you might get it done.

Re: sprint to VZ? esn?

VZW has locked up all non-native ESN migration. They wouldn't even let me bring an alltel phone to my VZW account. I spent days on the phone trying to get something done to no avail, they simply will not add the ESN.
