A lot depends on where the seller got the devices and what he/she knows about them. If they happen to have been reported as lost or stolen, then you have real problems since the carriers will not activate them. If they have been used on BES, you have a different set of problems than if they were used on BIS. That is what the link discusses.
Well the seller says that the phone is ready for activation so im assuming that the ESN is clear. But can you tell me what I should look for that might be wrong with the phone once i recieve it?
