How to clear an esn?

I recently bought a phone from someone off of Craigslist, it's a bold 9930, I couldn't activate it onto my Sprint account.. The seller assumed it was deactivated when he gave it to me. I contacted him and told him it was not, he then called back and said the phone would be deactivated in a couple of days. I just wanted to know if this is true, does it take a while for sprint phones to deactivate?

How to clear an esn?

AnwarR68,

     Generally when you cancel a line it will be done right away, you can always call us to check on the status of it at 888-211-4727, we can let you know if it's lost, stolen, tied to an account that still has charges. etc. If you would like you can private message me the ESN and I will check for you.

AnwarR68,

Nope, pretty much instantaneous once it is moved off of a active line of service.

Thanks,
