    This is a really bad idea. If your friend claimed his Droid was lost, Verizon will mark the esn and probably won't let you activate it.

    I hate to tell you this but it sounds like your buddy is committing insurance fraud and not being a friend to you at all. The phone will have a bad ESN. Verizon won't activate it.

    I'd go get my money back, from this so called "friend."

    once you claim your phone is lost. The ESN is locked and can not be used. You "friend" pwes you some money if you bought it from him.

    Really Bad idea all around. We are only going to be taken seriously if we stop making sneaky moves. Get your money back asap.
