    hello all,

    i hope im not reposting, i just didnt know how i could search for what im asking.

    my gf's dad bought a Motorola Droid 1 (verizon) off someone on craigslist.

    the phone looks good..

    he said that when he called verizon they told him it was still activated under another account.

    how can i get this phone to be activated??

    Either do as the last person suggested and get the person on cl to remove (providing it was actually his to sell in the first place) or flash it to a provider like cricket and resell it.

    It wasn't reported stolen? Contact the seller and see wtf the deal is.

    Only the seller can make this right.
