An activated sim card still won't work. The phone's IMEI will be in their system as being stolen.

Should have been done long time ago by all the providers for all phones possible in collaboration with the makers of the phones, somehow making stolen phones useless in and out of country. Bad ESN is not always a stolen phone, sometimes it is because of bills not paid.
