The ESN is the Electronic Serial Number for a phone,

ESN is generally used for CDMA by Verizon/Sprint to identify a particular phone.

It works like an identification number every time a call is made to notify what phone is making the call, and whether to allow the call (i.e. the phone is paid up, hasn't been reported stolen, etc).

Unfortunately I am not sure where you would find the ESN since I do not know what particular phone you are using which requires you to know its ESN.

Please see Here for more detail.

If you need more assistance, please respond with more information and I will attempt to further help you.

Thank you and take care.

My nokia 5130c-2 have a serial number, it is showing me 12345610654321?. What can i do.

follow this steps . God bless you

Nokia Lumia phone:
- Go to "Settings", select "About", click "More Information". Serial number is the "IMEI" number.
- Look on or beside the SIM tray.
Other Nokia phones:
- Input *#06# on the phone keypad. Some phones will then display the serial number on the screen.
- If your phone has a removable battery, switch off the phone and remove the battery. The serial number is printed on the label inside the phone.
- Check the original sales package or box.
- Reference the proof of purchase/receipt/contract.
- Contact your service provider.
The serial numbers may follow the letters IMEI, ESN or MEID.
Example: (Letters must be ALL Caps):
ESN: 12345678912 (11 digits)
IMEI: 123456789123456 (15 digits)
MEID HEX: 123A456B789C123 (14 or 15 characters)

In USA, Verizon offers Droid which uses CDMA technology. You can call Verizon customer service and tell them to activate the phone on your account. You should be a Verizon customer, should have a data plan and the phone serial number should be clean(not in lost/stolen list and active on another account). You'll have to give ESN number to the Verizon customer service agent while calling them. ESN number is at the back of the phone when you take the battery out.

How can you clear a esn # on a lg 260

No. Every phone must have a unique electronic serial number (a.k.a. ESN). This is hard coded and cannot be removed or changed.

If you want a new ESN get a new phone.

I have motorola v3xx locked by cingular. i need a subcidy passcode to unlock phone..

First, you'll want to obtain the IMEI or ESN (serial number). You can do this by removing the battery and looking at the sticker on the back of the phone. There will be several numbers, but only one labeled the IMEI or ESN.

Then contact the provider/carrier the phone is locked to currently (AT&T, Verizon, etc). Provide them with the IMEI or ESN and they will provide you with not only the code, but also with HOW to put in the code since some phones are more difficult than others.

Now the process is complete, and the phone is now ready to be used with a different company.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Do have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.
