    OK I'm screwed

    Bad news . I was just told that this phone cannot be activated on the Sprint network. I have tried for the past 9 days to activate it, but I just found out that the ESN cannot be added to the RMA database. I emailed the eBay seller that I bought it from, but I'm not expecting too much sympathy (or a refund) from him.

    Of course, if this phone were offered in Sprint stores, I would do a DHRP and get a new one, but because this phone is only available on Sprint Business, the Sprit store cannot swap it out for a new one.

    I'm out of ideas here. If anyone has any advice, please share.

    Thanks.

    I would agree with you if you were right, but the Palm OS is crap.

    Just wait a few weeks til it's available in stores and exchange it. Or keep fighting with Sprint about it. Maybe the manufacturer can exchange it for you?

    Nevermind. Threatened to cancel and I got them to do an RMA. Gotta wait 2-5 more days, but hey, I'll have a phone that works.

    Yes, but I probably wouldnt have got much for it (if I had disclosed the ESN issue).

    And if I didnt mention the ESN issue, karma would sort things out.

    The bottom line is, the phone isnt worth much because it cannot be activated.

    He bought it on eBay, and it has spent a week trying to get Sprint to activate it... something wrong with the ESN and they won't activate it, so he's been in a battle with them about it... and apparantly just won. As long as you are dealing with a legitimate Sprint reseller, you will be fine.
