    It's not possible since the ESN is now "burned into" the phone when it's
    manufactured. You can't change it. In the old analog days you could.

    Besides, you could be traced backwards from the people you called from the
    phone records of the "stolen" ESN. The cops have done this with stolen cell
    phones.
