Smile Help! Check the ESN

HI,
I have two phones. They do have sprint logo inside the phones but they do not have sprint logo outsite the phones so I dont know if they are sprint phone and if they have clean ESN to activate. I dont have sprint account so I can not check. Is anyone who has sprint account can check them for me? Thank you so much for your time.
I have two LG Lx160
ESN hex: A000000XXXXXXX
ESN DEC: REMOVED
The other ESN DEC:

The Hex one sure sounds like a Verizon phone with the A0000 start. I'd bet they both are and edited your post to remove the numbers, lest someone activate them and "steal" them for an insurance claim.

According to this page, they are/were used on Virgin Mobile and Sprint. The Sprint model has been discontinued, but it should still be able to be activated, assuming that the ESN is clear and there are no other problems with it. However, since they were used on Virgin Mobile, which is a pay-as-you-go company, they may not work with Sprint, even though they used Sprint's network.

Can't you just call Sprint and ask them to verify the ESN? Tell them that you're interested in becoming a Sprint customer and wanted them to check to make sure the phone was clean before buying. I've bought several phones off Craigslist and always called Sprint to verify the ESN before purchase.
