Ok, to start off, what happened is I bought a stolen Droid. No, not on purpous haha. It sucks because I went threw what I thought was the right way to cover my ass. It was on craigslist, and I had him give me the ESN and I called in to Verizon to make sure it was clear, he said everything was good and whatnot so I went and bought it. Bring it home, back up my BB and go to activate it, and it turns out the ESN is not clear. He gave me a different ESN then what was on the phone. So, I learned my lesson there. Guess I should have taken even more precautions.
Now, before anyone says anything, Verizon has been notified about it, and a full police report has been filled out. I dont want people pointing the finger at me and saying I stole it. Its been over a month and, without really any surprise, I havnt heard any news from the police (even tho I had a name and address where he lives... argggg).
Now heres my question, I found someone selling a Droid with a clear ESN but a broken screen (got dropped and has lines threw it, like dead pixels) for only $20. Would I be able to combine these two phones into a working phone? What would I swap over? Is it hard? Is this just a dumb idea because I dont want to be out $160? lol.
Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks for any input.
Also, the one that was dropped, he said the keyboard is kinda hard to slide, and theres just dead pixels/lines threw the screen, I dont think its cracked tho. The one with the bad ESN is in mint condition.
EDIT: Also sorry if this is in the wrong section, I just kinda skimmed threw the sections and picked this one as it looked like a lot of traffic, and I was looking to buy that other one today so I was hoping for a quick response.
