Please help, release ESN#??

Hey guys, i purchased a i500 off of ebay, the seller was a wholeseller. I tried to activate the ESN# and was told that it was attached to an account. Customer service said the account has been dead for a year, and there is zero balance. He said the only way I can use it for the original account holder call CS and ask them to release it by providing NAME and PASSWORD. Now i'm pretty sure the ebay seller does not have the original owners info.

Is this phone... useless now?

BTW, they said he needed to be release because it was on a business account
