I have tried at length to search for this answer but have not had any luck. I apologize if this has been answered before.

I am getting ready to sell my I760 and have performed the hard reset. All of my data clears, but what I look at my wireless settings it still shows my phone number. I switched that line to a new phone, and I have confirmed with Verizon that this ESN is deactivated. The only advice they could give me is to take it to a Verizon store and have them "Re-flash" it. I would rather not have to do that so I wanted to see if anyone had an alternative method.

Also, any advice about loading software on it before selling? I have some good apps that I paid for but will not work on my new phone, so I thought I would just load them back in. Any advice on this is appreciated.
