    bad esn?

    Ok all, I know what a bad esn is and how they work I guess. But I wanted to know if I bought a Galaxy SII (sprint) from a phone store, could it be flashed by cricket? Or would I specifically have to look for bad esn phones?

    Bad ESN with Sprint at the moment does not equal bad ESN with cricket ESN = MEID as well for this purpose

    Right...I thought all phones without SIMs are CDMA. Aren't sprint phones CDMA?

    Just to recap, if I were to buy a Sprint GS2 from a non sprint store, like a pawn shop for example, would I be able to have cricket flash it? Or no?

    Since when does a Bad ESN with Verizon affect cricket? I flashed a phone the other day with a known Bad ESN on Verizon and it flashed and went over fine.
