Hi

Can you clarify what do you mean with Activation and ESN?

If you put in your sim card to the phone and turn it on, what happens?

    So the phone is still activated for another network by the last owner, if the seller was the real owner he would have deactivated it. Probably a stolen phone.

    noting we can do then, maybe police could help you in finding the owner of the phone.

How do I activate and unlock a Verizon moto g cell phone


To unlock it from a provider, you need a sim from the provider and an unlock code from them. They won't give out any code for a stolen phone. There are sites on the net, that give out codes for a fee. It is not legal, so you won't find it easy, and not every code they sell works.

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.

I found a samsung instinct and I do have sprint but I guess the phone was reported lost. Is there a way to activate the phone?


there is not. once a phone is reported lost or stolen, that gives it a "dirty" ESN. (Electronic Serial Number) These are numbers created by the FCC to uniquely identify mobile devices. The only thing you can do is send it back to the carrier. Once a phone is reported lost/stolen they are added to a strikeout database. That phone is dead to the network/s.

Samsung instinct esn problems


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"
