Great info here! I've got an I/O Evo in transit to me now. So if we can't activate (swap ESN) on our own account until after the 4th, how far should I go to personalize this thing? Sounds like it is associated with a temporary email account and has its own phone number through the end of the 'free' trial period. I'd like to start personalizing this thing with my own gmail and exchange account credentials, download apps, load my Facebook and Twitter account info, rearrange the icons, install widgets, etc. Question is ... when I move this to my own account (sometime between the 4th and the end of the free service), will my personalization get wiped out during the transition?
Any advice on what I should or should not do before I get it activated on my own Sprint account?

I activated mine on my account with no problem Saturday. You have to call a special 877 number and they will release the phone from the free 30 day number and then activate it on your number. The number is, 877-527-8405. Have the active phone number and the ESN ready.
Re: Google I/O Evo's not able to be activated yet
Just called that number and no go. They told me the same thing...that Google won't release the phone until the 4th.
Anyone know how to forward my old number to the new one?

That is strange! They just did it for me Saturday!
1. Press * 7 2 on your Sprint PCS phone.
2. Enter the ten-digit phone number, including the area code + telephone number, of the phone you want your calls forwarded to.
3. Press TALK and a tone will confirm that call forwarding is active.
To deactivate call forwarding, perform the following steps:
1. Press * 7 2 0.
2. Press TALK and a tone will confirm the deactivation.

I was just able to do it. The first rep told me they could not do it, I asked for a supervisor. Had to get a call back, but when I got it he apologized and had no trouble moving it to my account. Took about 15 mins to cancel the Google account, change my plan, and add it to my account. Provisioned with my info and tested before we hung up.

I hardly use minutes. I'm on a shared 1500 minute plan between me and my wife, and we barely use 200 minutes per month combined.
I'd like to activate it now so I can stop carrying two phones around. Yeah, I know I don't have to carry my Evo around just yet, but come on...I can't keep my hands off it! :-)

My Evo showed up on saturday. I tried getting it activated with the special number on the pamphlet twice and it was a no go. I ended up starting an account an activating an old palm pre I had lying around. Right now, its showing I'm still upgrade eligible and want to buy another Evo on the 4th and will probably sell the I/O.
Now that I see some others are having luck getting them activated now and would like to try again, but don't want my eligibility affected. Did anyones upgrade date change after adding the evo to the main line?
Its a pain in the *** carrying around two phones, worse comes to worse I guess I could just wait til the 4th, get another Evo activate it on my current sprint line and then port my verizon number in.
