Question about LG Dare VX9700 Cell Phone
First thing is Verizon phones do not use SIM cards..Is it an AT&T version ? Or are you talking about his memory card ? I'm simply curious want to make sure everything is understood.
Now to answer your question, once someone reports a cell phone stolen to the service provider they send out a signal over there network locking the phone. It can be reversed, as once they report they have it back or that it's been found they will then unlock it.
If you are going to keep the phone you need to contact your service provider (Verizon, AT&T, ect) and tell them the situation. They will ensure that the previous owner cannot do that down the road. People cell phones (used, or unlocked) all the time. I personally bought a palm treo while back and called AT&T and had them take care of this same problem for me.
Hope this shed some light on your question. Post back with anymore questions or comments for additional assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

This can get killed at any phone company once it has new sim in it he can't do sq-wat I would not worry about it once it's in your name any screwing around with it could land him in prison as he is messing with FCC class C felony and they would go after him.

Have the owner transfer ownership over to you through the manufacturer so that your name appears on it. If he has the Meid number, then he can report it stolen in the future possibly but he can not otherwise corrupt your phone. Hopefully he is honest enough to not do such a thing as once the phone is in your name, anything he does towards the phone is illegal. Confirm the transfer of ownership after the seller says he did it. I assume that you got this through ebay. If the seller becomes unhelpful, rate him poorly. Tell him that for all of the extra trouble, you also want payment for what it cost to ship the SD card back and that he will get a good rating once he transfer ownership and once he pays for the extra shipping cost. I would also maybe charge him a little extra for all of the hassle that you had to go through. Let me know how this turns out. If the description is not fully accurate when I get something, I tell the seller right away and demand money back usually or they get the worst rating I can give them and it works. People need to be fully honest and descriptive.
