From the information you have given I can confidently say that the phone is most likely a stolen device.

I agree with this. Very unfortunate, but your options are very limited because of ********** like your seller.

I feel bad for the OP but you should of been at a Verizon or Sprint store. I have used CL several times and each time I would sell a phone I would always offer to meet them at a local Verizon store. I am curious on how much you paid for the 4s
