I have been on Sprint for over ten years and I am used to buying used Sprint phones, all I have to do is call Sprint and give them the ESN and they tell me yes or no for activation.

I know GSM phones are different but I thought I read that a GSMs phone IMEI (spelling) can be blacklisted or blocked, is this true? If so will ATT look up the number for you to confirm it is ok?

Looks like I am moving my family plan from Sprint to ATTs 10GB family share plan, I will keep using my Nexus 5 but my wife has an S4 for Sprint so I need to buy a used S4 for ATT.

Thanks
