the ESN is this number on the inside of the phone under the battery.. and yeah i switched from my samsung a920 to the treo 700wx just call sprint and read them the esn # and they switch your service to that phone

and i piad $300 for mine

just make sure you read the description carefully and also look @ their feedback.. the guy i bought it from had 99% positive feedback so it was pretty much a done deal lol

ESN = Electronic Serial Number

As suggested, when buying from Ebay, check out the seller's feedback and make verify that the ESN is clean and not stolen. If you ask the seller, they may let you know the ESN so you can call Sprint to verify that it's clean.

Do verify the description. Make sure there is no place on the add stating "Photo only", so they don't scam you by you thinking you're buying a phone, but actually you're buying a photo. If you think that's dumb, check this video out of a scammer trying to sell 2 sell phones, which are actually just photos.

Sprint or any provider will let you activate any phone, just as long as it belongs on their network. You just have to call them and let them know the ESN.

I love my 700wx. The keyboard on front makes it easy for 1 handed operation.

I haven't heard this one before. I'd like to try it, but want to get confirmation first so as not to screw anything up. I bought mine brand new off of eBay and paid $350. Only thing was, the person I bought it from is no longer a registered ebay user!!! LOL Anyway, like previously stated, watch the feedback of the person, and only buy from a US seller!

##RTN# or ##786# shows runtime and info of the phone. There's an option to reset the RTN, which I think is the master reset.
