I bought a new phone

I bought a metro s3 from craigslist and it's still activated. I tried to deactivate it so I can activate it on my account but I dunno the dudes 8 digit pin number for his account. Is there anyway to get around this please help

call the dude and ask what his birthday is.. or send him an email, also hope he doesn't have insurance and decide to report the phone stolen.. he gets a new phone for $50.. and you get a nice paperweight
