    if i sell my phone, how about does the buyer get it activated.... i was told that verizon phones dont use sim cards, so if i sell a phone how would the reps at vzw go about activating the phone for someone else? i mean would they think it was stolen and ask a bunch of questions?

    You'd have to remove it from your account, as in add a different phone to your phone number, and then the new buyer would have Verizon add your old phones ESN number to his account.

    Call Verizon and see if they'll remove it from your account...

    You're going to have another phone on that line in the meantime.

    We won't just "remove" an ESN and leave a line with no device attached to it.

    Agreed above.. You'll either want to wait get the Tour then sell the other phone to make it up. Or if you have another device to use in the mean time; reactivate it. If you don't have another phone see if someone has an extra to borrow. My whole family has vzw so we swapped our devices frequently. But unfortunatly on the cdma ntwk u have to have some esn on the acct active.
    Only downfall to an ota ntwk.

    Just have vzw put the tour on your account then sell your other and pay it off
