    DaDominican The Bold is only on GSM it will not have a ESN. Sprint uses a different network technology than the Bold.

    Not at all. CDMA (Sprint/Verizon)and GSM (T-mo, ATT) are completely different types of networks. The Bold is a GSM phone only. Which uses sim cards. Sprint doesn't use sim cards. If you really want to use the Bold you have to change networks. But if you want to stay with Sprint, I'm sure you could fetch a pretty penny for that Bold.
