So I purchased a phone from someone on Craigslist, they said they would be deactivating the phone, they showed me everything.. looked legit so I bit, ends up the phone is on a Demo Plan.. I was wondering what is a Demo Plan and from what I've found on google is that a Demo Plan expires after 30 days? Is there anything I should do? Any insight would be great.

Which phone? I know the Google I/O EVOs were all on a demo plan but they've all ended by now. I would call Sprint and make sure the ESN is clear and can be activated. If it's clear they should be able to switch it to your contract.

It's an epic 4g, they wont switch it because I don't have the password to the demo account.

Well the guy you got it from needs to take care of that for you I would assume. If the demo acct is in his name, he needs to call sprint or give you the password.

A heads up- whenever you buy a used phone from craigslist or ebay, ALWAYS get the esn and call Sprint to see if it's clear BEFORE you buy the phone.
