    I'm pretty sure what the explained to you is pretty much what it is. My interpretation is that:
    -The guy you bought it from didn't pay the bills
    -Therefore Verizon blacklisted it's ESN.
    -What you probably didn't tell them was that you aren't the original owner...give them identification
    -You need to check with your insurance company to see if they cover it, but I highly doubt they cover blacklisted phones.

    Sorry but can you slow down and explain in more detail and possibly with punctuation and grammar lol....do you called Verizon, they said it was okay, you transfered the phone, then they shut off your service?

    ok i re-activated my old phone, a blackberry tour yesterday, because i needed to get something off of it. when i was ready to go back to the Droid it wouldnt let them activate it because it was stating that it was put on a list for accounts that wern't payed but that wasn't my account. So whoever sold me it lied and said it was new when really it was used before and never payed the bill and not the phone is on some list ! idk what to do..

    Alright so the phone was transfered to your account, correct? Ask them how much the bill is...unless its more than $89. But be aware that phgones from insurance are refurbs

    they cant tell me its not my account man whoever used the phone before me didnt pay there bills and the account got cancelled so because the droid i have used to be on there account it blocked it..and a refurb is better than no PHONE!

    When you sign up for service, the buyer must give them their name and s tuff...the infos gotta be in verizon's servers.

    good luck man if the phone was never on your account how could you claim you ever even owned it to get a replacement? just be careful man theyll eat you for breakfast if they put 2 and 2 together..
