I bought a Droid A855 on Ebay. Turns out the ESN is assigned to someone else's account and the seller can't/won't help.

Is there any way to clear the ESN so that the phone is usable?

I think it has to be cleared through the carrier. In other words your probably screwed.

People, always get a bill of sale when buying phones from an individual.

If you bought it on eBay, you need to file a dispute. Also, you're probably the holder of a lost or stolen phone, the other possibility will be an account that is suspended or closed for non-pay. There will be no way to clear the ESN unfortunately.
