    I'd surmise you are still under contract and within the subsidy payback term. If so, the phone isn't fully yours yet.

    This would be my guess too.

    (and you're damaging your credit by not paying your bill. Just sayin...)

    My guess is slightly different - if you have Sprint or Verizon, and stop paying your bill, they put a block on the ESN, and that phone cannot be activated on any other network until the bill/ETF is paid.

    I think you're right.

    On a related note:
    It was only yesterday people would have been ashamed to admit so freely to breaking contracts- their word.

    Seems to come easily today for some.
