The only safe dummy ESN is one you KNOW isn't in use and won't be in use in the future. And as you know, you can't just make one up out of nothing, it has to have some resemblance to a valid ESN or MEID to work, which means there's a chance - sometimes slight - that you're going to cause a problem for someone else down the road.

Wrong. There is a standard dummy ESN that Verizon uses that is NOT linked to any account. It shows up as a Motorola device, but there is no actual phone linked to that ESN. I've used it before when I worked for Verizon.
