    As a non-"dippy" rep from Verizon I can tell you that regular reps can do an esn trace. If the rep refuses to help escalate because it can be done.

    I dont know about Verizon but the company i work for tells us due to legal reason we can not give the number out on the phone but i know we can use the # to pull up accounts.

    hmmm, have you tried searching yahoo! for a esn dec/hex converter...i know we have a computer program at work that you just type in the hex (the 6 digit one (?) with the letters and numbers) and it generates the esn decimal for you...

    i did take a computer assembly language (twice, actually because i didnt do so well in it the first time) and i tried translating the hex to decimal myself, but that didnt work...hehe, peace all

    Just forget about it. I wanted Verizon to check the ESN on this Ebay phone I purchased, to make sure it wasn't stolen etc. before I paid for it. But, it was such a goddarn hassle I just said screw it and take my chances.
