    Changing your ESN is much like changing a VIN on a car; illegal.

    Broken ESN? You mean bad.

    Bad ESN = reported stolen/broken/lost/deadbeat on the line before you. No way to fix. It's parts, and there's a good chance it's stolen.

    It can be done but if your having to ask how to change the ESN your already in over your head.

    not to mention its highly illegal.

    heres a section from the FCC website.

    How is this thread still here? Haha i fiqured it would be long gone or at least locked.Usually hook is on top of these.
    Nova, are you saying with your last post that youd hate to see the lost or stolen phones go to waste? That threw me off... So if you could change a bad ESN you would? ...Thats not fraudulent at all...
