I bought a Bad ESN Verizon Galaxy S4 on eBay. From what Ive been reading these phones come factory unlocked and i figured I would
buy one to use on T-Mobile.
I have tried countless things now and for some reason all I get in the status bar is a circle with a line through it.
I have tried various APN settings found around older threads but still i get no signal.
I rooted and installed the newest hyperdrive and still nothing.
Ive even tried an AT&T sim & an old Orange Sim I have lying around for these testing situations.
They both show a circle with a line through the middle and when I try to make a call it just says "Mobile Network Not Available"
If I remove sim and power on the phone it states there is No Sim Installed.
I am running Hyperdrive RLS15 with 4.3 MK2
I've heard that if a phone is blacklisted it cannot be used in the USA on any carrier is that true? and if so why are some users stating they bought a bad esn phone and works fine on GSM US Carriers? I am really confused decided to make an account and maybe get some more insight.
Thank You guys!
