No rooted does not mean it has a BAD esn.
Just means someone decided to do custom Roms Apps and so on.
BAD ESN happen when contract hasn't been 2 years.
Phone was stolen. Not eligible to upgrade etc etc all the things that would happen if the phone isn't paid for in full.
If it was urs, ur contract is fine and she is on the same plan as urs aka family plan.
Go to sprint Store and they should be able to swap numbers.
If you got the phone somewhere, AND it may have been stolen it will be harder to hook it up and that kind of topic is frowned upon on here.
If you word things towards the negative that is.
Hope this helps.
