    So anyone want to guess what might be wrong with this phone? Unpaid account or reported stolen?

    They are in Michigan, and I don't think they have normal retail stores there. If it was just on an unpaid account, how long does it take those to fall off normally? 90 days?

    Is the gamble worth the money saved. I'm not purchasing it personally. Just gathering the opinions of the community.

    because it's the cricket model it would have to be a stolen phone or reported stolen phone because you pay to go for your phone on cricket

    I think the account would have to be paid to clean the ESN up. If it was stolen, then Assurion(or however the devil they spell it) will NEVER whitelist the phone ever again.

    I did however send the seller a message asking. If he says he doesn't know, I'll tell him to call Cricket and find out

    Incorrect. If you just stop paying your account, it's not the same as cancelling. You are still billed for the upcoming month. If you don't pay your account, they mark the ESNs for the account as bad until it's paid.

    I takes 60 days for the phone to get out of the account. After that time has passed you can re activate. If you have the esn i can tell you if there has been a claim on it or if its locked in the virtual warehouse (lost/stolen).

    A premier w/ service Cricket dealer can clean an unpaid esn immediately... the only other issue is if it's insurance claim phone, then forget it.

    Lol why buy a Cricket phone with a bad ESN when you want to flash one to Cricket? Those ate my thoughts when looking at phones If I can get enough money up I may buy a Cricket S3 with a bad ESN for development
