can a razr maxx with bad esn work with any 4G simcard?
If you can find a network that uses the same LTE bands, it's possible. But Verizon uses different bands than pretty much anyone else. Then you've got the whole CDMA part of the phone that kicks in when you don't have LTE coverage, and that's not going to work out at all since pretty much any other carrier around the world that has LTE will have GSM for 3G, not CDMA. And even if they have CDMA, it's pretty safe to say that you won't get it working.
So, unless you knew exactly what you're getting into, I'd say that you probably shouldn't count on it.
What i try to say is if my g-nexus simcard will work with a razr maxx with bad esn
No way. If the device is flagged in Verizon's system, it won't matter what SIM you use.
+1 for what bsweetness said. I just wanted to add that a bad ESN almost always means the phone was stolen. Either stolen for the original owner or the original owner stopped paying for it and didn't return our to Verizon like they were supposed to.
