If you’re in the market for a cellphone, especially a used one, you’ll hear a lot of talk about ESNs with an emphasis on whether or not the phone is “clean”. What exactly does acronym stand for and what does it mean if the phone is clean or not?
Very instructive article. If I may add, there is another way to check your phone's IMEI - just type in *#06#
You don't even have to press call, or anything.
Nice article. Now if only I was really interested in carrying a cell phone around other than as an emergency back up (don't call me, I'll call you).
