Want to buy a used Galaxy 3 but need to check ESN

I want to buy a used Galaxy 3 from someone who terminated their Sprint contract early. How do I find the ESN for this phone to check if the phone is okay to be activated on my account? They said they can only find a ICCID and a IMEI number?? Where do we find the ESN on the Galaxy3?

Great question! To find the ESN for this phone go to SETTINGS> ABOUT DEVICE> STATUS. The ESN is listed as MEID DEC.


FYI: the IMEI is also useful for checking the status of the phone, as far as whether it is on a negative file. All of this information can be found underneath the battery, on the actual phone.
