I come from the iphone word (is that a swear word here
I'm looking at purchasing a few blackberrys, but I'm not familiar with the whole "is the esn clear or not clear" thing. I understand that if the ESN is tied up, that I can never use this phone? Am I correct? Is there a way that if I end up getting a used phone off of ebay that IS tied up by the ESN number, can I unlock it somehow or change sim cards? I have unlocked several iphones for use on other networks, but not familiar with the blackberries too much. What I don't want to do is end up getting a dead phone. Should I absolutely NOT look at a phone that might not say ESN clear? If I DO end up getting one like that with it tied up, what can I do?
Thanks... this is my first post here, sorry if I sound really dumb with these things.
