ok i just bought a blackberry storm off craigslist I was a little nervous because of the cheap price, but I took it to verizon today and its now my phone so it was blacklisted or anything .....im just wondering now if this phone was stolen or a unpaid account can it still be blacklisted in my name.

Thanks

Jim

Blacklisted on Verizon? Was it reported stolen or lost maybe?

I'm guessing you meant "was not blacklisted" by the rest of the post. If so, are you asking if it can show up as stolen now? If not are you asking if you can activate it?

i meant to say yes it was NOT blacklisted when i got it activated. What im worried about is if the guy I bought it off of stole the phone. Can the person that he stole it from blacklist it even though I activated it.

I got it off a guy on craigslist real cheap... Im just nervous...

Now that you have it activated you should not have a problem.
