This sound a little shady...but here goes.
Looking for a good deal on a 9630 so went to Craig's List and found a phone. Connected with the guy and once I saw the phone was beat up and the back button wasn't working I of course said I wasn't interested. He then proceeded to tell me he got a new phone and didn't need the BB so I could have it.
Got it home. Took it apart, fixed the back button issue. Then tried to activate. Verizon told me I couldn't because this person has a large outstanding bill. Verizon's policy is to blacklist phones with these large unpaid bills.
No biggie here luckily and this guy didn't get any of my money, but does anyone know if Verizon takes these phones off the blacklist and if so when? 6 months a year, never?
Gotta Love the BB
