    if i decide to sell my phone (droid), do i need to do anything regarding the ESN # ? the phone is clean, never been deactivated or reported lost ...

    want to make sure that i can sell it and a future buyer would not have an issue getting it activated ...

    Your paid apps are linked to your gMail account.... so you'll have to redownload them on your new device but not pay for them again.

    The only problem you'd run into with the ESN is if your device somehow got reported lost or stolen... then Verizon blacklists the ESN and it won't work for anyone.
