Default ETF & Getting a good transferable ESN

Let's say you buy a nice new smartphone. Then after a few monrhs you find that network
enhancements fail to happen. So you go early termination.

If you pay the $350, then do you fully own that phone and get a good saleable ESN?

As far as I understand, yes. But you may want to confirm that with someone who knows 100%.

From what I have read, yes. I can not speak from personal experience though.

AFAIK, ESN only goes bad when reported stolen or lost.
