    As we all know the 4s is a world phone.I saw lots of bad esn iPhones on eBay ... Now as esn is used by CDMA phones will a bad esn iPhone 4s work on gsm?

    Any ideas?

    It could, if it were unlocked. But only Verizon or Sprint (whoever the phone is tied to) can unlock it, and they're the ones declaring the ESN as "Bad" so they are unlikely to do anything for you.

    If a JB/unlock comes out then that would be an option.
