    Default Question about BAD ESN Verizon Iphone4
    So my friend bought a iphone4 off of craigslist, turns out it has a bad esn.
    and was stolen
    I then contacted the owner, his number was still on the phone. Anyways the question is if my friend was to give back the phone for the owner to "clear the esn" would my friend get to keep the phone? Even though the owner bought a new phone?

    Probably not. It is stolen property and does not actually belong to your friend.

    somewhat random, somewhat relevant question..
    If a verizon iphone 4s has bad esn, does it still get service?

    It does get service, but it will still pick up a signal.

    that happened to me on craigslist dude thaught he scammed me out of $300 with the bad ESN iphone he gave me, he wouldnt answer the phone even his tag i got was no good. But anyways i just took it to the apple store and told them the phone had call dropping issues and that the phone kept rebooting its self also had a proximity issue as well and WALLA! I got a new 1... oh yea he asked me why wasnt the phone active and i said "I switched back to my blackberry cause i couldnt take it anymore thats why im here" I will admit that I was nervous but I didnt care, I wasnt going to lose $300 because I was too lazy to call and verify the ESN before I handed the money over.
