I know someone who had to upgrade from the LG Cosmos 1 to the Cosmos 2 because the "slider" mechanism wore out. She HATES, HATES, HATES the Cosmos 2 - mostly due to the laggy UI.
In doing research, the LG Env3 still ranks to be one of the best non-data, text-friendly basic phone. I may be able to find a used LG Env3 but in very good condition through a reputable Ebay seller.
Question 1: How can I transfer contacts from the Cosmos 2 to the new Env3? Will the Verizon Store Tech Department do this for me upon activation?
Question 2: How do I ensure that an ESN is clean? Last time I called Verizon to verify an ESN on an Ebay Phone, the CSR assured me that it was clean. After buying the used phone, I went to the store and the rep said the ESN was NOT clean. I double-checked and it was indeed the same ESN......
Hello ! I can provide guidance for transferring (as preserving) contacts and for verifying availability of a device! First, for transfer of contacts, your friend can install Backup Assistant to her current phone. It is free of charge, and remains the best way to transfer and protect the contact list.

Next, to verify the availability of the replacement device, you can use this tool:
