    Hello everyone. First post. I've been searching Google & other forums for this answer & can't to seem to find an answer.

    I'm looking to buy a Droid, but on Craigslist, the only people who are selling them pretty decently priced are flashed to Cricket.

    I have VZW, & I like my service. Does anyone know the steps to (or if it's even possible) to flash a Cricket Droid BACK to VZW? Thank you in advance.

    i'm assuming cricket allows "banned ESNs"... so you probably won't be able to reflash it for VZ

    But say for hope's sake (LOL) that the ESN isn't banned. A possibility?

    LOL, normally I wouldn't either. But the difference between $300 & $559 (retail) makes it nice. Also I won't buy anything without getting the ESN/MEID. I have a friend who works at VZW who can run it real quick.

    Why pay retail on a Droid? I walked into the VZW store last night with my sister who is a VW customer, and she walked out with two Droids for $200.

    Surely your friend at VZW knows about this deal?

    I guess I failed to mention I'm currently in the middle of a contract & my upgrade isn't until March of 2011.

    99% chance you won't be able to get it to work on VZ... and i'm sure you'll never hear from the seller again.

    you would need to change the ESN, which I thought to be impossible with today's phones
