    Hello everyone I recently purchased a sprint hero from a guy it looked good and worked good and he was nice and respectful (so I thought) :eek: but when I tried to activate it sprint said it was still liked to an account that had been blocked due to non-payment, I found out he had service with cricket so I when I went there Cricket said that he had reported it lost and the phone was blocked out of their system also :mad: now the guy will not answer my e-mails and the number ha gave has been disconnected. Now I have a sprint hero that I have no idea what to do with and I'm out $80 so if anyone has any advice they would like to share with a noob I would greatly appreciate it.:D

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Sounds like you have a challenging problem... One of the inherent difficulties with purchasing a phone second hand is the risk of the phone being black listed. I know of no legal ways of resolving the problem except trying to broker a deal with the carriers to un-block the hand set.
