Clearing Esn On Sprint

Well long story short I bought a phone from an individual on Craigs list and the phone was brand new in box. I called to get it activated and the esn is still in use!?!? I was like WTF. So I called the guy and the phone will not be available for use until his bill is paid! So is there a way to hack the esn or anything to get it to work.

Upstage II> by sprint. LMK if any of you hackers know anything about it. Thanks alot.

i doubt it...

you might be able to have them pass the bill onto the collection agency, that'll make the phone able to activate...i think

how would I do that???? I would call in a second. The guy said he "fixed" the problem but all he did is cancel service. I have been on the phone with sprint about 10 times. TODAY ALONE!!

Theres nothing to hack, You are screwed tell the bill is paid. Always get the esn and call sprint to see if its a clear esn. Nice paper weight tell then.

or pay a sprint employe to clear the esn in the system

i.e. transfer his service to a bogus esn. Not that I condone this activity

You're only as strong as you allow yourself to be...

ESNs can be changed, but you'd have to find someone with access to a utility to do it. But again, you'd have to have a known good ESN to put into the phone to begin with.
