     You can also drop it off at a Sprint store location so they can send it to us to get it back to the owner.

     Have you tried to find any phone numbers on it to contact so the phone can be returned to it's owner?

Re: Bad ESN

I just got a brand new Galaxy Nexus from a Sprint Authorized Retailer and when they tried to activate it the ESN came up Lost/Stolen. I think their system sucks if it kicks out a brand new phone from Sprint as Lost/Stolen.

With bad ESN there is no way on activating the device Sprint.

Re: Bad ESN

Sorry for the inconvenience.[....]Where did you get this device?

If ESN was never activated on the  your  account before, just want to advise  you  that there is a lost/stolen restriction that cannot be removed.

Hope this helps
