    My girlfriends daughter and boyfriend signed up for a Framily plan on sprint and lasted two months canceled for non-payment they want me to reset the phones for sale I'm reluctant i want to help I will list them as having a bad ESN on eBay but not sure what there worth

    They can't get them unlocked so international use is out it's basically Dev phones or a nice looking iPod

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Sprint doesn't want them back according to them but I plan on following up with them first

    Can you see if they'll credit you for them? Possibly at least use it to close off some debt they owe?

    Why don't they just make the payment?

    I told them to make payments till they catch up and have them turned back on. Kids these days there now on prepaid box phones. What a waste of two nice 5c's

    Ikr? I just buy my phones outright to keep from being stuck in a no-win situation if my other bills win...

    I'd never been the type to like to be in a contract. Mostly because I go through too many phones.

    Such pretty 5c's though. =[

    Honestly, the only options you have if you're going to help is what you already know. Sell it as a glorified iPod. Personally, I would tell them to sell the things themselves since they're the ones in the rut.

    Agreed. I'm sure we're all the go-to tech people in our families and group of friends, which I don't mind, but there's no way I'd help someone who did something so blatantly stupid. If you are too dumb and immature to fulfill your commitments, then it's your problem to rectify, not mine.

    Crossed my mind but I got time and who doesn't want to play with someone else's iDevices

    I decided not to sell them thou.

    If they don't pay their fees it will haunt their credit in the future. .

    You can take them to a sprint store and give them the phones and they'll credit your account.
