Hi guys, I don't live in the US and I'm considering getting a D3 with a bad esn and unlocking it for use on my GSM carrier.

From what I've seen this should work in theory but I'm also a bit concerned about what would cause a bad ESN. Any questions or checks I can do to figure out if the phone is legit? Anyone had a good/bad experience unlocking a D3 with a bad esn?

Bad ESN phones are generally stolen or lost.
