So I wanted some feedback from you guys.
Call me crazy but here is my story..no bullshit at all!
My dad works in a rich building downtown..guess what he finds..a iPhone 4S 64GB!
Thing is I already own a 16GB 4S. Awesome thing is I'm with verizon just like the 4S he found.

Is there anyway I can transfer my number to the new 64GB? And I don't want Verizon thinking I stole the phone when my dad simply found it. Any help on this?

Unless the previous owner is a dumbsh*t, the ESN is probably already reported as lost/stolen. Essentially, you now have a very nice and fast iPod touch lol

I posted pretty much the same info regarding the 4S a couple days ago; of course no one notices it

For CDMA devices, the ESN is acting like a serial number tied to the device through the carrier. Once the device is blacklisted on a carrier (bad ESN = reported lost or stolen), you can't activate on that carrier unless the ESN is removed from said list. If the phone's ESN was not reported yet, you are good to go.

ESN's can be a pain in the ass, but it renders a stolen phone pretty much useless to thieves

Oh word? Should I bother going to Verizon store and asking if they can do anything for me? Or will it just set me up for trouble lmao?

I did call the guy on private and he just kept saying hello. Of course the iPhone didnt ring. He transferred his number already?

^You can call and have it checked, never hurts to do so !

EDIT: Try this, I don't know if it will let you know if its bad or not though. I assume if it doesn't go through, its bad lol.
