    I bought a 700p recently that was broken and fixed it up. It works great, except for the fact that it's still locked to the previous user's phone number. It's already been hard reset, but I can't get it off this guy's account? It's a Verizon phone, and I know absolutely nothing about how CDMA phones work, as I'm mostly a GSM guy. I don't think I'll be able to use the phone, but if I wanted to sell it, are there any steps I should take to make sure that this guy's account isn't on it?

    Only verizon can do that for you. Since he sold the phone he should have closed the account or ported the number over to another phone. You need to make sure that the phone doesn't have an outstanding balance w/ Verizon or they will never activate again until the amount is paid.

    Yeah, it's a Verizon phone, and the guy already has another phone with that number. So safe to sell? It shouldn't have an outstanding balance as far as I know.

    You need to do a 'zero out' reset. Search in this forum.

    There doesn't seem to be one for the 700p, but I did find this:

    Seems like the equivalent to a zero-out reset. Funny how I didn't find this the first time I searched. Stupid me.

    you need the MSL code to clear that.

    PS. Verizon wont activate the phone if it is still tied to his account. -he needs to call in to remove it from his acct
