    So I damaged the motherboard on my D4 and I've been looking for a damaged phone to use for parts. I found one, BUT the owner says it has been "black balled" by VZW. I don't know exactly what that means and more importantly if big red identifies the phone by the motherboard or just the SIM? Anyone have more knowledge of this?

    guessing "ESN" has been blacklist for nonpayment or it was report stolen, once verizon blacklists a phone it can not been undone
    even if payment is made or owner report phone has been found

    it should still work on a global gsm network

    also you can enter the MEID, IMSI or IMEI to see if it's blacklisted on verizon here Enter your Device ID to check eligibility.
