    How long does it take to get an esn cleared after telling vzw you want to cancel service? Can I pay the etf the same day and the phone be free and clear for someone else to use? Or does it take a month to get it all straightened out?

    Thanks.

    I doubt it takes a month, but a few days seems likely, also the ETF must be paid before they will clear the ESN. Additionally porting your number, I've heard, can slow down the process, but hopefully one of the off duty reps that hang here can provide you with a better timeframe. But I highly doubt it's a month.

    Sometimes it can be the end of the billing cycle...

    I've had phones clear as quickly as 48 hours.

    And some within 12 hours, but I think the longest would be the end of the cycle.

    So I guess I really need to find 2 other phones to put in place of my 2 lines. Thanks.
