I bought one in great condition for 60 bucks. Verizon tells me I cant activate it because the retailer they bought it from still has their lock on it. So it isnt really reported stolen or lost or blacklisted whatever. I dont have a receipt or anything but the phone and its charger. I believe it was at least bought/stolen from walmart. When I call Verizon they say they cant activate it. That I should take it to the store I bought it from with a receipt. I of course dont have one and the corporate verizon store number that a local verizon store gave me takes me through pretty much to 611! Which will only lead to a customer rep that and I have already talked to 4 different ones! If anyone knows a way around this let me know please.
