    I have not been having much luck buying Sprint phones on ebay lately. A couple have checked out as financially clear and not blacklisted when I check online but when I ask Sprint they say they are not eligible to be activated. One common factor is they have all said "poc swap: false" highlighted in red. What does this mean?

    where you seeing this? on sprint's website?

    i found this:
    https://myrealmobile.com/Forms/REAL Mobile CDMA Dealer Portal User Guide.pdf

    hit the table of contents on the left and select cdma poc swap. scroll to the section for unsuccessful poc swaps. i'm guessing its red because of one of those reasons given.

    Thanks for the info. I'm seeing this message on sites like imeipro and imei24...amongst others. When talking to sprint, who wasn't much help, they made it sound like the phones might have been unlocked to another carrier. I was just wondering of this is what the pic swap: false message was trying to tell me. I know very little about this.

    its most likely because of one of those reasons.

    and this is why i would never buy phones off of ebay. its tooooooo much of a headache to deal with.

    I did read "poc swap" is to do with financial eligibility, whatever that is. Other than that, no idea as I've never had to deal with locked phones and restrictive US carriers.
