Sounds like the ESN/IMEI is bad.

Hard to fix ATM.

Oh really?how does that happen!? The imei isn't blacklisted or anything and shows up as a registered imei. I tried flashing stock image and still no dice! Looks like I'm doomed. Any other suggestions?

That usually happens when the following steps occur.
The original owner unlocked bootloader.
They put twrp on it and did a full backup including ESN
The device developed a fault so they RMA'd it.
They restored the backup from the faulty device into the new one.

The ESN is device specific and by restoring it onto a different device you end up with not being able to connect to a network.

You can check by going into the about phone menu in the settings. If it displays your imei then I don't think this is your problem.

Have you tried popping the back cover off and checking the antennae contacts

The good news is the parts are worth more than the $70 you paid for it. Find someone with a busted screen and sell it.

That's a good idea.

Thanks for the advice. Ended up selling it this morning as is to an eager repair junkie. Btw my imei was showing up and the antennas were all in place so still a mystery what was up with it!
