Finally got it!
I finally got my echo. I've been wanting this phone for awhile. I got it about a week ago, but here's the problem. I bought it off Craigslist and when i try to activate it, it says its still on someone's account! So i contacted the guy and sprints making him pay his bill first! What kind of ***** sells the phone before the phones ready to be used. So who knows how long it'll be before this can be my everyday phone. Errr

Since that ESN is still under his account Sprint will have to remove it from his before it can moved to yours. It'll take the guy paying his account off before you can use it. The device might as well have a bad ESN since you can't use it yet. Talk to Sprint though....they might go ahead and do it for you. Just plead your case and besides its not like your not going to be paying your bill.

I had the same thing bought a galaxy II, used for a week! - was still on the other person's account. Sprint stated there was nothing they could do but they did let me sell it to them through the buyback program. I was not a happy camper but sold it for more than bought it for so guess it ended well.

Re: Finally got it!
Thanks for everyone's help. Last Thursday, the guy emailed me saying he checked UPS and his new phone was supposed to be there at 5pm. Of course I've tried to activate the echo everyday and its still on his account. So I'm probably going to go ahead and report the Zio stolen so he can't use it. This guys a real bum, if you ask me.
