Has to be on the approved equipment list, and the evo is not.
On another note, some *** hat came in yesterday to a location I was at and told them he wanted to activate his Iphone and the rep laughed. He freaked out and told us that they passed a law that it can be activated on any line of service now, and that by not activating it we were violating his constitutional rights and would "be hearing from his attorneys." Probably one of the best one's Ive heard yet.

I've had my X since launch and haven't had any issues. It's the best Android phone out now. I have none of the issues that others are having with their phones. In fact, if you go to the EVO forum there are more people having issues there.

I used to do this all the time with Nokia's that VZ would not sell. No hook up needed, just a phone call. It's bee a while, but if I remember correctly there is a form that has to be faxed in as well.
If you can, get the GSM EVO. I hear the 4G ROCKS on it (Sorry could not resist)

There is always a way..
ive gotten verizon phones activated on US cellular before.
things you have to do.
you HAVE to get the evo onto Verizons network.
i know the evo is programmed over the air, and im unsure if there is a Nam Programming menu, if there is, your golden.
just go into the System ID, and change it to whatever verizons system id is in your area, restart the phone and try it, if its on verizons network u will know via roaming or 611 and the verizon message. if you do this and its still on sprint, then you have to flash a verizon update PRL list to your phone probably via QPST or whatever..
now activating may be easier said then done, but find another HTC phone that has a similar ESN type, lets say the droid x, (im just saying examples here) if the esn cluster is the same, you can just tell them your activating a droid x, give them the ESN to the evo and it should be good to go.
calling an texting WILL WORK for sure, as for data, it may or may not...
but this has been done with other phones and it does work because i have done it, just by saying the phone is a different model that the carrier your activating on has.

Re: Evo on vzw
Honestly, they are all great phones. I don't know why people have go get so invested in 'my phone is awesome and your phone sucks' all the time. Chill out, people, we are lucky that we have so many great choices.

just debunking his statement that the droid was problemless.
from what i can tell, it had more issues then the evo, the battery life issues was fixed rather easily for the evo and most ppl have everything synced and setup to suck the battery down.
if i was on verizon and ready to pay so much for the same service i get on sprint, i would of gotten the X, infact i was thinking about it and went with sprint.

There was talk that they might switch, but they did not for the DInc. Kinda like the talk that the DInc will get Froyo yesterday

They are all great phones and far superior to the iPhone, so let's leave it at that.
