Phone with bad ESN

Recommended Posts

I personally wouldn't. When an IMEI is blacklisted with Verizon, it's blacklisted everywhere.

I am looking at a OnePlus 7T on Ebay but it says it has a bad ESN from T-Mobile

What does it mean?


most likely "stolen" had payments stopped on it and never turned back to t-mobile. Device may be blacklisted from connecting to a mobile network permanently.

There are websites where you can check the status of an IMEI with the carriers. I have uses imei24.com before.

Well, when it is literally blocked off from a network it is most likely stolen (which, as others have already mentioned, might be due to stopped payments and not sending it back), they are not allowed to actually sell it and you are also not allowed to buy/own it. So if I were you, I would keep my hands off it.
