    I think best case scenario is flashing it to some prepaid service

    Pay the bill that was charged on the account that the phone was previously on. If its considered "lost" you are out of luck.

    Never buy bad esn unless you have plans to flash it or just want it for parts. Bad esn means it was either stolen, lost or someone shafted them on a contract.
