I just purchased a brand new CLEAN ESN verizon iPhone 5 off CL, when I try to activate it with my own sim card(from ATT), it gives me a screen ask for the last 4 digits of ssn and the billing zip bonded to the phone. The seller wont give me that information, can this phone be activated on another verizon sim?

If this is a Verizon iPhone 5, your problem is most likely that you are using an AT&T SIM card. These cards are not interchangeable between the 2 carriers.

Maybe it was not really a clean ESN phone?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
