While I do have a phone that would meet your standards lying around, I'm over 5K miles from home. But I do have other advice for you - find the phone you want on craigslist based on proximity to you. Contact different people and when you setup a meeting, do it at or near a Verizon store. If they go and are willing to let you check the phone's validity, the phone is likely legit. Provided everything permits, have the store actually validate that the phone can be added. The whole process should take no more than 15-30 minutes.

x2 on validating the phone.

Have the person give you the MEID #. Call verizon and verify the phone can be activated on your account and you wont have any issues. It takes about 5 minutes and you don't even have to see the person before you purchase to make sure it is legit.

what if they give him a different phone's meid? Just saying. It's a good idea but physically taking the phone to verizon would be better. or dial*611 from the phone
