    Questionable content... Why does your phone have a bad ESN?

    Moved per request of OP.

    In regards to flashing if it has a bad ESN it will most likely not be approved due to being a CDMA phone. Bad ESN is questionable, but if it is just a legitimate mistake (like you bought a phone used and the previous owner forgot to deactivate it prior to selling it) that is fine. But usually if it has a bad ESN they won't allow it on their network. GSM phones can often still be done because they rely on the SIM card, the DX does not. Each different carrier has the right to approve or disprove phones on their network. If it has a bad ESN it will be likely that Virgin Mobile will not allow it on their network.

    Also keep in mind Virgin Mobile runs on Sprint's network and generally Sprint does not allow Verizon phones on their network. Also, I believe even when flashed across there can be radio issues regarding data, although I have never attempted it. Like I said, due to the bad ESN it will most likely not be approved anyways.
