Ask the seller for the ESN number, call the carrier of the phone and ask them can they run a check on the esn of that phone and they will tell you why the ESN is bad. upon fixing that issue (usually an unpaid bill) you should be good to go.

I have just brought it and dont know how to set it up. have installed battery and sim card, but after that the instructons are vague for some one who hasnt used one before


I wonder how you can install SIM card on a Sprint phone. It uses CDMA technology and doesn't support SIM. If you are a sprint customer, call the customer service with the phone's ESN (Electronic Serial Number) in decimal which you can find at the back of the phone. The phone can only be activated if you are a sprint customer and the ESN is clean.

I bought an evo from a flea market in my hometown of Columbia sc. I thought I was getting a great deal until I found out I couldn't have it activated because of a bad esn. I have since seen online where...


You wouldn't be able to use Boost, but maybe Virgin Mobile. Boost uses iDen, formally Nextel technology. Virgin Mobile uses CDMA or Sprint's. Here's how to do it: Go here: https://www1.virginmobileusa.com/activate/activate.do?page=0
Follow the instructions and select the Samsung Intercept as the phone model. Enter the ESN and you should be good.

Can boost mobile sim work in a pro 700


Hi,

PRO 700 DOES NOT USE SIM CARDS! instead like the other sprint phones it uses the ESN/MEID number on the back. Just call sprint and tell them you want to do an ESN SWAP or SWITCH TO A NEW PHONE and they will ask you for the number under the battery. They will also walk you through activating everything including Direct Connect. It is as fast as Nextel traditional Direct Connect but it has a MUCH LARGER COVERAGE AREA FOR VOICE AND DIRECT CONNECT. Soon these phones will take control and the whole IDEN network Nextel uses will be converted to CDMA (sprints High Speed Network).

How to unlock LG Rumor from sprint


The LG Rumor is a Sprint CDMA device. This means that it is activated on a network using the Electronis Serial Number programmed into the device. Once the device is powered up, it registers to the network and if that ESN doesnt match an active acct, then no service, and you may get a message asking you to activate your device. Sim cards are only in GSM devices (not including nextel and a few devices that have been dubbed world phones, allowing them to work on both CDMA and GSM services.)

So, all this was to explain simply that you can never put a sim card in a LG Rumor. There is nowhere for it to go. SRY!!!!!
PLS RATE THIS POST AS FIXYA.

ESN that sprint needs is the ESN DEC, it is an 18 digit number above a bar code under your battery directly on your phone. This is not to be confused with the HEX, which starts with an "A"
