Does anyone know how to change an ESN number on the EVO? I have a good number as my phone was destroyed. I see a lot of phones for sale with bad numbers as I am sure they broke contract and didnt pay bill. I know there are vids out there telling you how to change it but has anyone really dont it and have it work. Or is there a way to sell the number I have.

hhmm, I always thought the ESN number was permanently tied to the hardware to which it was assigned. Like a MAC address for a network card in a computer or a fingerprint on a person...

In my opinion, if you see a phone and it's listed as having a bad ESN number then it HAS to be stolen.

Well I know what Sprint told me. And that is when you void the contract on your phone that you got at a discounted rate due to 1 or 2 year commitment and you break that contract. The esn number is locked so the phone is no longer usable. So yes at that point it is considered stolen, but in the end Sprint will get there money. But even after they recover there fees the phone will remain unusable. But like most computers that have memory I'm sure there is a way to erase or change that information
