    My family is going through a divorce and we switched off the Verizon plan and went to Sprint. That is why I am selling this phone. The father is the one who had the account in his name, and I am not sure what the status is on that. I have wiped the Droid, but when I go into About Phone under Settings, it still says the phone number that I have switched to Sprint. Another problem is that I want to make sure my ESN is clear on this phone. If somebody could check it, that would be awesome. Just tell me if you know how to check it and I'll send you a message with the ESN or MEID.

    Just call Verizon, they will tell you if the ESN is clear.

    That doesn't really answer my other question though. It seems as if my phone is still thinking it is registered with my number, even though it has no service. When I dial 611 it says "please type a 10 digit phone number you are concerning". It seems like its ready to be activated, but I still don't like seeing my number in the info section considering im selling it to someone i dont even know..

    You'd probably have to do an SBF recovery to wipe that.

    Have you tried calling it? ESN question only Verizon knows.
