    airplanes

    let me just get straight to the point. there is a guy on craigslist who is selling a droid for verizon. he says that after using for a couple minutes it goes into airplane mode and he cant get it out. he basically just doesnt care about fixing it so he is selling it for 200. i would love to get a droid but they are so damn expensive. so does anyone have a possible solution to this problem?

    i will post the ad for further info

    That link is dead but regardless... It can likely be fixed by a good ROM flash or by having VZW reflash the phone. Even if not the phone is under a 1yr warranty. The thing to worry about is if the phone is tied to his contract and if they will release it (i.e. if he gives them the finger and cancels his contract VZW will NOT release the phone until he pays the money).
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    no its not tied to a contract or anything. he said the esn is clear and of course when i meet him i will call to double check. basically im just wondering that if i buy this phone off him if it will just be a brick and a waste of money

    I bet it can be fixed.

    But listen to KZI -- offer to meet the guy at the VZW store, and dont give him the cash until they release the phone from his account.

    Really the only way you can be sure is to have a VZW employee tell you the phone is no longer tied to an account. Just meet the guy at VZW. If he's really worth doing business with, he'll agree to do this.
