    I bought an lg chocolate vx8500 off someone for pay as you go (yes its telus), but when i tried to activate it, i found out it had a bad esn.

    Is there anyway i can fix this so the phone is usable again?

    If you bought it off a store you should be able to ask the for a new ESN, or ask them for a new one if they really gave you a bad ESN, because it is their fault.

    ESN can't be changed, if it is bad, it can't be unbadded.

    yes but then you can complain to the store about it and they should be obligated to give you a new phone,.

    Stores are not obligated to give you a new phone when you purchase a lost/stolen phone. Just tell your seller to give you back your $$$, unless you bought it AS-IS..then thats pretty much it for this situation.
    There is another option but its risky,I wouldnt even do it myself.
