    I have a crappy basic Pantech phone on my Verizon unlimited texting plan. Is there a way to take it's ESN, (or whatever), code and put it inside my Galaxy S Epic 4g to make Verizon think that I am using my basic phone? Both have clean ESN codes and I can root my android if necessary. Is there any way at all to make my smartphone appear "dumb"?

    Altering any electronic identification number (ESN or IMEI) is illegal in many jurisdictions, and eas the purpose to do this is to defraud the carrier. We don't need to discuss this any further.

    Android Forums does not condone any illegal activity or the discussion of methods to do these things.
