    I picked up used unlocked tour (verizon branded) that someone had unlocked and was using with AT&T. Can I use this to go back to verizon? There is no sim car currently in the phone, but i supposedly get service?

    I took it to verizon, they said there was service on the phone, but i know for a fact that the previous owner was using a SIM card. There is no sim currently in the phone.

    I'm confused.

    It may bad a bad esn. If a phone has a bad esn verizon won't activate it. A phone gets a bad esn by someone reporting it stolen, or not paying the bill, and i think there are other ways too, but I'm not positive.

    Also, you don't need the SIM card for VZW. VZW/Sprint are CDMA carriers and don't use SIM cards. The SIM slot in the Tour/Storm/Storm2/etc. are for use out of the country.

    Have you tried dialing 611 and see what the messages states?

    Well, i called 611 and it connected to a verizon rep. After asking me some normal questions, etc -- I dont know how she did it -- she directed me to try activating again and it worked. I got lucky with this ESN. I'll be more careful next time.

    Glad all worked out for you. You always want to be careful when buying a CDMA Blackberry in case the ESN is blocked.
