Selling my Verizon EDGE phone without opening it
I recently got an iPhone 6s through Verizon as I had the 25$ line access discount for converting to Edge but don't want a new phone. I also got in on the $300 iphone trade in from a friends old 5S.
Now, the phone is being delivered Friday. I'm looking to sell it on eBay and would like to sell it "sealed".
Does anybody know what is required for me to do to keep the ESN clean? It was purchased through the EDGE program, so it's not a subsidized phone. However, I've heard Verizon requires you to activate the phone or the ESN is blacklisted.
Can somebody clear up the confusion on this as I'd like to get it listed soon.
