My Iphone was on my sister's account. The service was disconnected for nonpayment. I was not allowed to use my old phone number or my Iphone. I had to get a new account and a new phone. Is there any way I can get my old cell phone number, or at the least use my old Iphone? I have heard people say that the ESN is bad now.

bro i thnk your phone is locked and not jailbroken so if you jail break your phone you can atleast use it and if you unlock it than you can use any sim on it.

The phone is a Verizon phone. I am not sure that it has a sim card. Until my sister pays the balance on the account, is there any way I can have someone "unlock" it? Apparently the ESN is marked due to the non-payment on the account. My phone was one line of many, and I don't want to pay the unpaid balance.
