Question about Samsung SPH-a460

Open Question

I can't find the esn number on my Samsung SPH-A460. I used this phone with Bell for a couple of years and now they tell me it's not a Bell phone. They are asking for the ESN number

SOURCE: i have an samsung phone wit an inactive esn code

I have activated some phones with Verizon.
1. Go online to or call them.
2.Take battery out and then notice the very bottom number from the barcodes on the phone (not the battery).Then type it online, in the box where it asks you for the ESN number. If you can't do it that way, don't worry, give the same number the operator from verizon.
3.Wait 5 to 10 minutes then dial *228.

and that's it.

Hi dude just follow these steps and you shouild be able to change esn

You will need to register for "My Verizon" first, as this is where you will find the online ESN changer. Follow these instructions to do the ESN change yourself:

  1. Log into your "My Verizon" account
  2. Under the "My Services" section, click on the black GO link, next to the picture of your phone.
  3. Click on the "Activate Phone" link on the right
  4. Click on the " Activate Equipment" link on the right, under the "Existing or Replacement Equipment" section .
  5. Click on "Reason for change" and select "Other", as the reason
  6. Next you will need to enter the ESN/MEID number and hit submit.
  7. After you have done this, wait 5-10 minutes and dial *228 (option #1) to program your phone.
  8. Once you hear the "Your phone has been programed successfully" message, you can hit OK, or the end key.
  9. You can make a test call by hitting #832, to confirm that your phone is working properly.
This will Help and do rate me

Well if you are tied to a particular network all you have to do is to unlock your phone to use it any other GSM network. You can get the unlock code through online.
