You have a phone with a bad ESN. The only way your going to be able to activate it on Sprint is to have the previous owner pay the outstanding balance and clear the ESN. If you bought it off Ebay and it wasn't marked "bad ESN" you could probably file a claim.

There's not really much else you can do, other than flash it to a different carrier (boost, virgin mobile, cricket..)

There are ways to do it but it's going to take a decent amount of research and a little bit of hacking. You might want to look for how Evo user have done it, the process is probably similar. I've flashed a few blackberries over to boost in the past but the process is completely different.
