It was originally purchased by me and properly deactivated through Verzion. Account is in very good standing. Does that mean it is clean?

Thanks for quick assistance.

You call the cell phone company and they can check it. There's probably a number under the battery that you'll need to give them. If it's been something you've owned the entire time and haven't reported it stolen, or anything, it'll be clean.

Assuming you have the same carrier, if you can activate the phone on your account, then it has a clean esn. You cannot activate a phone with a bad esn. The phone only has a bad esn if reported stolen or if your account is not in good standing.

auction went to $110. which i believe was close to, probably a little under what i paid for it a year ago with upgrade. and here i was honestly just gonna keep it like i had my previous two phones for no particular reason.
