    AT&T iPhone XR with bad ESN on ST

    I have the opportunity to buy an iPhone XR that’s from AT&T but it has a bad ESN due to unpaid bill and installments. So I obviously I know it won’t work on AT&T but I was wondering if I buy the Straight Talk BYOP kit that’s comes with the AT&T compatible SIM will it work on Straight Talk with no issues?

    no, if the phone has a bad ESN no carrier prepaid or postpaid will activate the phone. try taking the phone to your nearest AT&T store and try to resolve the issue.

    Really? My Nexus 6 wouldn't be unlocked by at&t because someone sold it before paying for it, I have been using an ST sim since the Nokia in an iPhone days, have had zero problems here. Maybe if the IMEI is flagged for non payment it's different than lost or stolen? Like I said, at&t refused to unlock it because of unpaid bills and phone payments, but Straight Talk at&t sim cards could not care whatsoever.

    I ended up buying an iPhone x second hand which is something I never do I always buy new esn was bad so to make back my money I sold it as is it can't be used in the US but out of the US it works fine, depending on how much you paid for the xr you could sell it as is
