I'm looking to pick up a used LG G2 from Craigslist (yeah, I know, it's risky). An attempt to mitigate a bit of that risk is what had let me to the question: Will a Straight Talk (AT&T) SIM card work in a Verizon G2 that's been blacklisted? I know that the phone itself is capable of doing it, just not sure if a Verizon blacklisting can cripple the GSM capabilities, too.

I've been in contact with someone selling one, and all seems to be legit; she says that the ESN isn't bad. It just seems like a little too good of a deal, so I'm skeptical. I don't yet have an active AT&T SIM card to test, so I'm hoping to find someone who's recently attempted what I want to do. I must really suck at web searches, because Google has been surprisingly little help to me in answering my questions.
