    Bottom line was he said he cannot activate it for me, and said I have to wait until the previous owner pays his bill? Sounds like a croc, since what does that have to do with the new owner of the phone? And of course, the guy I purchased off of is nowhere to be found. I'm going to guess negative list = stolen.

    My question is pretty much what can I do now? lol. Stuck with a paper-weight.

    ... any chance you live in Ottawa? .. or perhaps out west.. and did the phone come with a rubber case that looks like a tire tread? It would be a white 16gb 3Gs. If so, this would probably be mine. EDIT> btw.. no worries.. i've got a new one and this one will be pass locked with two device tracking locators! - Just try and steal my phone.. muahaha I'll find you! xD

    My iPhone was stolen a while back and I had bell put it on the negative file almost immediately. I don't believe a phone will be put on the negative file unless its stolen.. or possibly if a customer has signed a contract, recieved the phone at discount.. then never payed any bills. This can happen if someone signs a contract using someone elses name to get a cheap freebie and a couple months use.

    If it was stolen, shouldn't they have taken the phone and called the real owner? .. at least thats what they told me they would do, but I have a feeling they are full of sh*t
