the other day at school. Is it basically worthless to me or is there a way I can use it as a backup phone if mine gets broken?

If someone reports it stolen it probably wont be able to be used. The ESN will probably show up as stolen or lost and they wont activate it for you, unless you go to one of those 3rd party stores. But, even then, after they activate it within 24 hours the company will probably pick up on it and it will be deactivated.

how about not being a shithead and looking through the contacts for "mom" or "dad" and calling them to let them know you found their kid's phone?

There is no contacts on the phone what so ever. Possibly got factory reset or something to that effect. But its an empty phone.

They likely did a remote wipe of the data.

With that said, it probably has a tracking app as well. Get ready to be contacted by police or beat up randomly by someone.

Mandakatz works at Verizon and she can't even complete a sentence. Tie the phone to a wild animal and you'll be ok.

If the phone had nothing in it, then its already wiped out and that means that person probably already replaced their phone via insurance (unless they are a dipshit and dont have insurance) therefor when you turn it in, they will probably just send it out to get it refurbished for another customer.

I don't see how a reseller would be able to activate it. it's all the same computer process no matter where you are

if you wanna do the wrong thing, plenty of people are gullible enough to buy a phone on ebay and try to activate it only to find out the ESN is reported stolen. when I was a tech I watched this happen to SOOOOO many dirtbags, meth heads, rubes and failed gangsters who thought they were somehow not going to be detected by buying a phone on ebay

but do the right thing

and by that I mean throw it in a river
