iPhone 5! Dirty cheap?

Hi guys.

I have 2 iphones 4S and 1 3GS. I use them everyday and cant be more happy.

But now im facing iphone 5.

I found them on eBay (also those 3 phones were bought on eBay) for 600$ shipped.

BUT they have bad ESN.

Just 1 short answer as googling it couldnt clarify me.

Can i use them outside US Ex in Albania with GSM mobiles. Im handy with jailbreak / flashin / Gevey etc.

Thank you !

If its a verizon i5 with bad esn it will work with any gsm carrier outside the US.
If its a sprint model it won't work cause those are locked.

You have to be a sprint customer in good standing for 3 months and some other requirements they have in order to unlock it for international use.

Don't know where you live, but considering 600US$ for an iPhone with bad ESN and you will probably ending with a customs problem (taxes due importing), it was better to check anywhere else. An new iPhone unlocked costs 700 dolars...
