Bought a 9m but Verizon won't activate I made the mistake of buying a used phone without knowing about the MEID#. I tried to activate but Verizon said it was reported lost or stolen and the phone is on the 'black list' and can never be activated again. I called the number that was on the phone and talked with the actual owner whom confirmed that he lost the phone. He was on some phone insurance program and they sent him a new replacement. Is this device 'dead' as a phone? I guess I can use it as an MP3 player if all else fails.
