ok. i did a really stupid thing which was to buy a droid x for verizon from propertyroom.com. once i got the phone i found out it is on the stolen/lost list for verizon. the number is still listed in the phone so i called the number and left a message for the owner. then i did a reverse white pages search and found the owners name. then i found him on facebook and friended him. it took a couple of weeks but he accepted my friend request. so, now i have his email address from his fb info page and his wall, and i have been sending him messages: do you want your phone back? i bought it from the propertyroom website which sells lost/stolen/unclaimed items from the police warehouse. I leave a message every few days. nothing from the guy. i really want to use the phone and i offered him cash to take it off the lost list at verizon. no answer. is there anyway to use the phone on verizon or do i have to "flash" (whatever that is) for another carrier. Thanks for your help.
