    I'm trying to buy an iPhone 8 Plus and seems like phones with bad ESNs go cheaper. My question is , how does this whole bad ESN thing work? I'm buying from eBay America, but I mainly live in the Caribbean. I read that once it isn't an American Cell Company, that the phone will work with a bad ESN. Can anyone confirm this for me?

    Give me your brand new iPhone XS Max and I’ll see what happens after you report it “ lost”... Merry Christmas

    Don’t get a phone with a bad esn. It’s either stolen or on a bad account. Carriers block phones on delinquent bills
