    Question Locked Sprint 8830

    Advertisement



    Hey gang, I purchased an almost new Blackberry 8830 from a colleague. she told me that the ESN is locked because she did not pay her bill. My question is can this phone still be used and activated? I originally purchased it to take apart for the screen. I don't need it anymore, and I'm just trying to figure out what to do with it.

    Thanks

    if the ESN is locked the phone is basically just a parts phone. She would have to take it back, pay her bill, and then make sure the ESN is clear. Sprint is pretty strict about bad ESN phones. The phone can not be activated with a bad ESN. Hope that helps.

    But there's a beautiful view of the end of the world from the pier.....

    It is possible to remove it from the negative file if you call in and say you purchased it from a person online and you cant return it, you have a 25% chance of getting it clear, but its worth a shot.

    Thanks CP its basically brand new, I'm not sure what to do with it. Its been collecting dust on a shelf. I was thinking of putting it on eBay but wasn't sure if i should try and clear it first.

    It will be very tough to sell a device that doesnt have a clear esn. If you really have to get rid of it Ill take it off your hands, very cheap though, to use as parts for my service center.

    If you do sell it you must announce it has a esn thats tied to a negative account, or it may bite you in the bum.

    You also can sell your phone per a little money or clear ESN and sell per big money. If you choose the second way, you need program for editing ESN. You can use program named " DFS Tool " from cdmatool.com site. It will helps you with unlocking SPC, editing ESN/MEID . To see how to do it you can on youtube
