    Alright so My boyfriend bought a android phone from craigslist a few months ago because his htc was being all screwy and his upgrade was a few months away. It's up now and we're hoping to get the droid X because it's buy one get one free. but anyways...

    We tried to get it set up and switched to our account but the people at verizon said the number is still listed under the other person's account. the phone is disconnected and not a working account. but still under the persons name. does this make sense? I called the people told them they insisted that the phone was not under their name anymore. So my question is... is there anyway to fix this? I don't need to use the phone but I could sell it to someone else. I just don't want to screw another person like they screwed us. Verizon has told us there is nothing they can do. But there has to be something? :unsure:

    Risika, this subforum isn't a good place to post anything. I'd recommend you start a new thread with this information in the general Droid discussion section as it will receive a lot more attention there. I wish I could offer some help but I know nothing about the inner workings of Verizon's machine in such a case. I'm sure there's something that could be done, but I don't know what or how effective.

    Also, if you could post about your boyfriend's phone (I'm assuming it's either an Eris or an Incredible; we have experts on both here) we might be able to fix it for him. :)

    Good luck!

    Thanks for all your help, I'll repost this in the area you specified in hope someone can help me out some more. I don't really know what HTC he has but it's not a droid so =P it's mostly screwy because it's been dropped n all sorts of abuse. Not to worried about it. :wink:

    THANKS again!!!!
