month ago. i sold my EVO OG on craigslist.
she was a college student that was green behind the ears.
i suggested we meet at sprint store..
had them check my ESN..
and stayed there to make sure it all got activated on her account.
i think .. once activated on your account.. they can not Blacklist the device.
Sure they can...
Situation 1---the seller could report it stolen after the sale. Its unlikely to happen, but its a possibility.
Situation 2---Someone steals the phone from its rightful owner and sells it before its blacklisted.
Making the sale in the store with a carrier rep watching it can help prevent situation 1. Have them make a note on the account that the phone was legally purchased.
With situation 2 you're pretty much out of luck.
