    The best thing to do is to call VM's customer service and tell them what you are doing. Then they will ask for the phone number & V-Key (password) or just the ESN (serial #) if you don't have the first two. With the phone number & V-Key they can tell if the account is active or not, or they can tell if the phone is stolen with the ESN number. :)
