buying a cellphone from ebay ???

My sister already has a verizon contract and just broke her phone...the warranty replacement price for it is $99, but she can find the same phone on ebay for .99 BUT it says something about needing to get a new two year contract...so stupid question...but will this phone work with her current contract or would she need to sign a different one or how does that work??

Get the ESN from the seller and call Verizon. They'll be able to tell you if the phone is on a contract (sometimes people sell them and you assume the contract) if it's been flagged as lost or stolen and if you can use it to continue the contract you're on. If the seller doesn't know, the ESN is usually either on the sim card or inside the battery compartment.
