So I lost my Droid X, and I got a replacement phone through the insurance company after I paid a deductible. Anyways, I found my other phone, and now I want to sell it. The only problem is the ESN is probably blacklisted. If I sell on ebay, they can file a complaint and I can lose the money. What should I do?
yes thats the proper way if you have one you cant call in on. If your the original owner, aand you only reported it lost, you can call in and get it released
FYI- theres utilities to get the MSL too
well, the problem is I reported it lost, and then the insurance company sent me a new phone. Selling the original phone might constitute insurance fraud of some sort.
I'm not sure if that company (Asurion) blacklists the esn's but I know other insurance companies send you an envelope and make you "recycle" the phone if you find it, as if I'm going to send them back a $500 phone.
Also I reported the phone lost to Verizon so the probably did blacklist the ESN now that I think about it. The phone is unable to make calls ATM, it says the number is not valid.
I might sell it on CL, buyer beware. First thing is to call in the ESN and have my fingers crossed.
