    Question EVO on Verizon?

    Can the EVO be used on Verizon's network? If I bought the Evo outright, would Verizon allow me to connect it to their network?

    No.

    Although both Sprint and Verizon use ESN's, you'd have to ask a higher teir technician to hack the Sprint ESN into the Verizon database, something neither will do and probably will ever do.

    In addition, even if you could somehow convince Verizon to add the Evo's ESN to their database, 4G would never work on the Evo on Verizon since Verizon uses LTE for 4G and Sprint uses WiMax. It would essentially leave you with a Evo 3G, in which case you might as well just get yourself a HTC Incredible unit directly from Verizon.

    I saw somewhere that LTE and WiMax isnt that different. that all you would need to change WiMax to LTE is a simply OTA update...so i've heard

    Well they are different types of signals iirc. But VZW's LTE network won't be ready for 1-2 years, so what is the point of getting the Evo on VZW if you can't use the 4G anyway. The Incredible seems like the winning solution here.

    Honestly, the only thing the Evo has over the Incredible (besides 4G) is a larger screen, slightly bigger battery and the forward facing camera. If you can do with out those, get the Incredible.

    I was interested in the EVO just for that: the larger TFT screen and front-side camera. I knew it would only be for 3G. But since Verizon will not do it, then this is a mute point. Thanks guys for the info/confirmation. The Incredible it is then.

    Very doubtful. They may get an Evo clone, but the major selling point of the Evo is the WiMAX 4G, which is not a standard VZW is going to be using.

    They got the Incredible instead. Maybe they will get the HD3 when LTE comes out though. Time will tell.

    Unless things drastically change, I'm fairly sure that HTC will want a monster Android phone with working LTE on Verizon as soon as it gets a big enough subscriber base. I'm also fairly sure Verizon will want the same thing

    My guess? Just about a year from now.

    The Selling point for me on the EVO was the mini HDMI out... That HUGE Screen and the promise of Froyo... If the Incredible had the bigger screen i'd be all over that bad boy...

    no no no and no .... sprint has a legal right to not allow other CDMA phones on there network. If you wan no security go to att or tmobile if you want to switch phones around. I like CDMA for that reason.

    Looks like the shadow is a direct competitor to the EVO. hdmi out, 720p recording, 4.3" screen, 8mp camera, etc.

    Screen is a little smaller, I think 4.1. And it doesn't have the snapdragon processor. But still very similar.

    Default Verizon getting the Motorola Shadow instead of EVO

    Verizon will be releasing the Motorola Droid Shadow which is basically a keyboardless Droid with a 4.1" screen. Doesn't look like a front facing camera, but will have OMAP processor with seperate graphics processor, 8MP camera, 8GB of onboard storage and HDMI out like the EVO. Much thinner and square lines. It won't have 4G, but I would definitely take this over the Incredible any day. Should be out in June/July timeframe.

    Just wait for the Shadow. Slightly smaller screen, better processor (imo) and stock Android. All better.

    Correct, it has that horrible Motoblur. It is not stock Android.
