Straight talk Customer Service saying they are sprint phones? - pawncentral - 06-13-2012 10:47 AM

I buy used straight talk phones to resell in my pawnshop...I am careful to always ensure the ESN's are free and clear to be activated by new customers, but in the last 2 days I've had two phones returned because the CS reps say they are sprint phones. Sometimes the customer actually has to call straight talk 2 or 3 times before they actually free up the phone for use. I have never had this problem before? Any ideas? What's the deal?!

That is rather odd.

Do you happen to have the ESN of the handset?

Also, to save time in dealing with CS reps... do all activations and device swaps online. Straight Talk's standard CS reps are outsourced and communication with them is a PITA.
