    Question Is my ESN good/clear?

    Hey gang,

    I recently bought a Moto DROID on Craigslist. The seller said the ESN is clear and I have failed at having anyone at Verizon run my ESN to check it. Every rep/customer service/tech tells me they have to actually setup an account to check the ESN. I don't want to setup an account with Verizon if the ESN is bad. Is there anyway I can get this thing checked without going in to a store?

    When looking at: Settings>Status: My phone number shows up as 0000002185

    I hope that means that it is clear and never been activated... it still doesn't let me know if the DROID has been stolen.

    *sigh* i guess i'll keep trying with Verizon tech support.

    If you call *611 they can direct you to a tech who can see if the ESN is clear.

    Your guess is either right or wrong. I guess we will never know. Well I know, and he knows.

    Nobody would have anything to gain from knowing if it was blacklisted or not. When I sell a VZW phone on eBay I have no problem giving out the ESN to a potential buyer. What do they have to gain by knowing the ESN...nothing.

    I hope the OP got a good unit, but I read a post from him saying he got it from CL for 275. I am not very hopeful.

    Hopefully I am wrong.
