Kurt Streiff: I have a Verizon droid razr maxx that I owe Verizon still. Can I use this
phone with other carriers?
Jim Bennett: I didn't see where the phone actually had a bad ESN. I have seen many
Nokia Lumia 822s that had locked out ESNs and the first indication is when
I put a blank 4G card in the phone. If it is not locked, it will say phone
off, then no service, then Verizon Wireless. Every time the phone did not
make it to Verizon Wireless, that particular phone would turn out to be
locked out. And Trust me that they can be locked out. I bought 3 last
week that were claimed to be good ESNs and they failed the blank SIM card
test. I then inserted my 4G activated SIM and again they didn't
automatically activate. When I called Verizon, those specific phones are
always locked. The only thing that is true on this video is that you can
insert your 4 G card into a UNLOCKED 4G phone and it will automatically
activate. This guy is simply WRONG
cuddles6938: Because of a law passed all Verizon 4G LTE phones are supposed to be
ALREADY unlocked. That is not the same as the older 3G phones. So in
essence you could swap your SIM card from one Verizon 4G LTE into another
Verizon 4G LTE and since the phone is already UNLOCKED the SIM should work
in the other phone instantly. Some models of phones you had to call the
Carrier and they had to activate 4G for people who bought 4G phones and
were not getting 4G on the screen.
Aviator92: Why would you switch from a Droid to a Samsung Nexus? Samsung phones are
pieces of crap and the Droid is much better.
jonathan owens: My phone has no sims
Steve Song: If you kept your galaxy nexus and try to sell your Motorola, could your
Motorola be sold as a good esn number while maintaining your current
Doug Crane: What do you thank about the Casio G'Z commando 4G android phone I hear that
they're not as good as the old Casio commando just wanted to get your
opinion? I've heard that it turns off and then you had to take the battery
out put it back in and reboot.... Great video
cuddles6938: This only works if the other phone was also a Verizon CDMA phone.
cuddles6938: Motorola probably uses a Dual Band antenna like iPhone where it has an
antenna on both sides of the case to get a better signal. New technology is
out that makes this obsolete, it does not need you to point the phone
towards a cell tower to get the best reception but it will also require ALL
of us buy new phones with this new tech once the Carriers change there
hardware all old phones will be obsolete.
cuddles6938: Bad ESN usually means a phone was reported as STOLEN or a person never paid
off the full contract on the phone and the carrier marked the ESN number as
BAD. That is one reason why you never buy phones on ebay. I do not know of
any legitamate place to buy the phones people sell to Gazelle. If they
could tell us where it would be nice. Best Buy has another Brand Online
store where they sell products people trade in but the prices they want are
a joke, they want 75 for a OLD Samsung Galaxy Fascinate which came out 2
dawidus91: Exactly why I don't have CDMA period. No such hassle with GSM
Rachel Schmitt: Can you please make a video for how to fix the MEID on a iPhone because I
traded my iPhone for a verizon one and they guy who gave it to me didn't
finish paying his bill and I need a clean* iPhone .
Sebastian pappas: Wow. Thank you for the waste of time. If you are wondering this video IS
RETARDED !!!! Don't waste your time on it.
Jamie Schwartz: We are all just a little bit stupider for watching this retard!!!! I have
been unlocking selling and modifying smart phones since day one! That was
seriously like watching a little boy thinking he is driving a car when
actually he only figured out how to turn the radio on....
neuregel: go to school biaatch!!
louispabon1: But if the esn us bad and reported stolen theres no way u can connect it
Geovanni Abarca: esn can repaired and fixed . yes its possible
josh roza: What case is on your razr
Andrew Conrad: then explain why i have a sim card in my verizon phone, bought from a
RyuseiHikari: Because as an employee who use to work for Verizon and now works for a
company that sells used phones and actually seen this happen I can tell you
why... Verzion doesn't make a dime of a "bad esn" or even an "old phone"
when it needs to be activated. Why do you think they always tell you to BUY
one of their phones that is new
QuarkToo: Blow your nose.
Brian Shirey: The samsung was never black listed in the first place. I have owned sprint
phones that was black listed then released over a period of time. Not sure
about verizon tho.
Jacob perrin: Great just what my cousin needed
Imatechguy: Do a follow up video and make a phone call i think that would have made
people believe ur theory of switching sim cards more than just showing the
3g! This is just my opinion!
Alessandra Santhiago: LOVE IT
King David: Does this work for ANY Sim card phone?
BPM PL: what's your email address to ask a question regarding the issue
davieboyy22: Is there any way you can. Reset or change the bad imei. I have a Verizon
iPhone 4 the
vashon yancy: Thiis false, why wud Verizon tell You the esn number is bad and then all I
gota do is put your working SIM card in ithe bad esn phone and the phone
will work, this makes absolutely no sense at all.
cane Grimey: This video is real. This method does work. I have a lumia 928 and a razr M
both have bade ESN. Whenever I want to use them I just take the sim chip
out of my S3 and put it in one of the other phones and it works. All of my
phones are Verizon phones.
iH85CH001: What if you don't have a sim card from your old phone cause first of all,
the iPhone 4 verizon didn't have a sim card and second... That phone was
stolen and thrown into a creek... So i dont even have the old phone to do
Joseph Solis: sprint doesnt use lte. well they do its just so weak its not available.
sprint uses wimax 4g the weakest of all 4g. same with t mobile and att&t
Jake Guy: As a Verizon employee your ass got told ! (:
odane thomas: IF i get a bad esn phone and i want to unlock it will that affect the
cane Grimey: Verizon has been using sims for a few years now. The only phone they have
that doesnt take a sim chip is the iphone
xcxaxmxexrxoxnx: This is so self explanatory. I respect you man, but anybody that didn't
know this was possible is a dumbass. And Verizon and AT&T and tmobile
phones CAN'T HAVE BAD ESNS
josh roza: What case do you have on your RAZR????
Thane Lewis: can i do this from my droid bionic to an iphone 4s
applesauceprod: i thought verizon phones didnt have sim cards?
iH85CH001: no...verizon is cdma, tmobile is gsm.
no sweat: please contact me @email@example.com if i understand you correctly if
i have bad esn phone i cant just buy a verizon prepaid phone and insert and
my samsung glaxay s3 will work on 3g fully
Ty William: You "Verizon Employees" crack me up. You don't know what you are talking
about. Break out your notepad because I'm about to school you to some
stuff: If you have a device that has a bad esn, all you have to do is
insert a SIM card from a device that is WORKING and it will work. It has to
be a 4g Lte sim card. And as far as old phone needing to be turned
off....where do you come up with this stuff? I can hot swap my sim from one
device to the next with no problems what so ever. troll
Nicholas Christian: i thought verizon phones were cmda with no chip
RCandMXproductions: all 4G LTE smart phones do, Troll
Shelby Navarrette: I had a question. Can you get introuble for purchasing a bad esn phone.
Please contact me as soon as you can thank you.
Marcus Tryggestad: Does this work if you have a phone that is 3g and want one with 4g?
Shane Foo: What is an NES?
killerb255: That makes sense! Before the whole 3G/4G schpiel, it was pretty simple: GSM
providers (AT&T, T-Mobile in the US), while CDMA providers don't (Verizon,
Sprint, et. al. in the US). CDMA providers would only use SIM cards for
"world phones"--phones that can use the GSM frequencies overseas. Since LTE
is GSM only, it looks like even the CDMA providers are being forced to
adopt the technology...
MachtsNichts: Some might, but it isn't required by the technology unless they roam on GSM
networks. Any numnuts knows neither CDMA nor LTE requires a SIM card.
