ESN number & pesonal info


Jun 16, 2011, 6:07 PM
I was attempting to purchase 3 HTC Moguls on Ebay from a recycling company
While Sprint can state they were not reported as lost or stolen by a level 1 activation rep she stated the personal information is needed from the company who previously owned the phone like they ask you name address pin number etc...
What recommendations are there to someone who is interested in purchasing these? I* am not asking a Should I or shouldn't I but is there a way to get to a "knowledgeable sprint rep" [oxymoron] Laughing or department so someone in sprint do a "reverse lookup" Of course they wont give me thne info but can they identify the previous legit owner?

We can identify the previous owner. For obvious security reasons, however, we cannot give the info away without permission from the old account holder...

So what happened? They weren't able to be activated on your account?

its a corporate account i guess sprint would have to trace it back to the company liaison/ purchasing coordinator. i tried e-care, but it seems like a lot of work to ask them to do so i can keep my legacy rate plan Crying or Very sad
