    Well I finally got burned on Craigslist. The old saying if its to good to be true.... I would like to see the rightful owner get it back but if thats not possible I'd like to give it to a developer (free and i'll pay the shippping) Any thoughts?
    BTW the ad is still up but the scumbag is long gone. http://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/mob/3199627010.html

    How did you pay him? If it was paypal you might be able to get your money back.

    I had a friend that found a samsung transform ultra phone in a box of donated items. If Im not mistaken, normally a bad esn is from either a stolen phone or a contract phone where the user did not pay their bill... Since it couldn't be from someone not paying their bill, it's probably stolen?

    The aforementioned friend honestly did not steal this phone but it was still linked to another users account. After 2 or 3 months boost unregistered it to the previous owner, nudie pics and all and allowed my friend to use it on boost where he is now happily running the latest software and tweaks thanks to yours truly. Could this situation apply to you?

    I gave him cash. he was texting me with it but he was on wifi using Google talk then reset it infront of me to clear "his " private info. Pretty smooth. if Blood doesn't want it maybe I'll see if it will activate in the future. cs says not reported stolen but linked to an account. Thanks all

    Sorry I couldn't get to post office today. I promise I'll get it out asap. I'm very familiar with Bloods ct mods. Still using 3 prevails in my household. On a side note I think $hEvRoN rom is quite good and very similar

    Jumping on my parents Share Plan on VerizonWireless.

    Dad has an iPhone 4 and so does Mom. Brother has a regular phone.

    They have the new Share Plan with Unlimited talk and text. Dad is paying for 6GB of Data. Says so far hasn't used much more than 4GB.

    I'd be sharing that Plan + Data for only $40 a month. But you can add 2GB of Data every extra $10. So if I pay the $60 I'm paying now I can add 4GB more to the Pot. May just add 2GB for $50 instead since I don't use much Data anymore.

    Not since you can cache/download maps for Navigation and there's Wifi pretty much everywhere I'm at. A bonus is this plan includes Wifi tether. Oh Yeah!

    I will be getting the SIII of coarse (Only $199). Also the 4G speed here is awesome. They did a Speedtest at the shop and got 25MB down and 15MB up. Amazing! Dads house has 30MB internet and I have 20MB and work is over 10MB, so the only benefit for me is the upload since I do websites. Can't wait.

    May keep the TU to play around with by trying to DEV on it or sell it. Would have to be around $100 or wife won't like it. (Not since I paid over $300 with setting it up and everything)
