I went to 2 different MetroPCS locations, one a "core" store and no one seems to be able to help me. I called their customer service, who referred me, in turn, back to a retail store. I gave them the 7250's ESN, but they said it was invalid (I think that's the term they used). I'm in Orlando, Florida; does that make a difference? Should I just keep calling every MetroPCS location around until someone knows what to do?
