    Well saying that you somehow got a device from Verizon with a bad ESN (very rare) then take it back. If you purchased it from someone, get your money back. If that is not an option, then you might be out of luck.

    If you stole it, give it back. Otherwise it's good for parts.

    Sounds to me that you need to give it back to whoever you got it from.

    If the phone has a bad ESN then it's very likely also blacklisted. You cannot legally register and use a blacklisted phone. And since Android Forums is all about the legal use of Android devices, it would be inappropriate for us to allow this thread to continue. I'm sorry but this thread is now closed...
