    Hello,

    I recently bought an epic on craigslist for really cheap from some girl. She claimed that the phone was new and had a clean esn. She said she was switching carriers because sprint was getting on her nerves. When i met her i checked the esn and it was clean. I activated the phone and everything went well. One week later i noticed that the seller has posted another ad for a new epic with clean esn. I guess that i want to know:

    1. How is she getting multiple phones that have clean esns?
    2. If they are stolen how can they have clean esns?
    3. Should I buy another epic from this person?

    Thanks

    Does anyone else think this could be an insurance replacement? Can sprint deactivate my phone after I have it activated if they realize that it is a replacement?

    Doesn't add up....She buys a new 4g phone and then is switching carriers in less than 30 days?

    When you say "Really Cheap" how much did you pay?

    If it sounds too good to be true....

    I paid $170 for it. I checked the esn online and it was clear. When I activated the phone in sprint chat there was no problem. I just want to know if there will be a problem later.

    Can you email her from another email account and pretend you are interested in the other EPIC she is selling? Curious to hear her story. Something doesn't sound right to me.
