yes verizon will activate it for you.  as long as it is a verizon phone.  id be a little careful dealing with ebay, so you dont get ripped off.  make sure you know what you're buying.  you can also have the person(s) send you the ESN number, then call verizon (might be a website also ?) to make sure it is legit.

You can input the device ID # on THIS website to confirm it will work on Verizon.

As everyone else here said, definitely check the ESN before you pay anything. If the seller won't provide it, look elsewhere. Yes, a store can activate it and get it all set up for you.
