Neither phone uses sim cards - those are used with GSM phones (AT&T and T-Mobile.) GSM and CDMA are definitely NOT compatible with each other, they are different ways of encoding and decoding the digital signals on the bands you share with thousands of other users - though a few phones have both GSM and CDMA chips.

Why put a evo on Verizon when you can just get the Droid x? You people make no sense, I keep hearing how Verizon has better phones but everyone wants to try and put a evo on there network. Lol its sad of you Verizon customers to keep asking about putting the evo on your network when you can get the Droid inc and x.

It looks like you need a Verizon insider to manually enter the MEID or do some ESN/MEID cloning which is way over my head.

To the original question: yes, it's technically feasible. It's been done in the past with PalmOS Treos and Pres. But, and it's a big but:
You'll need to fool Verizon or find someone to sneak it into their system. Verizon will not knowingly activate a phone they didn't sell.
None of the Sprint specific software is likely to work and, of course, you won't be able to take advantage of Verizon specific features, since your phone won't have them.
It's likely other things won't work correctly, either. For example, when people did Treos, my recollection is that it wouldn't do data over 3G, only 1xRtt.BROKE MY WRIST AND TYPING ONE-HANDED! Please forgive all typos.
PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.

No way man, The Evo is much better than Droid X in a lot of simple practical ways that make all the difference.
1. reading. The built in kickstand would be amazing
2. capacitive buttons. since the screen is so big, its nice to have capacitive buttons so you can reach with your thumb and "touch" the buttons. This is something you cannot do with the droid X. since they are actual buttons you cannot just "touch the buttons", you have to push them, this requires a little more force than can be mustered if you are holding the Droid X in the middle. That prob isn't very clear, but if you have a Droid X I'm sure you know exactly what I mean
3. Motoblur SUCKS ****! Sense is so much more intuitive, and smooth. I have launcher pro on my phone but there are still some aspects of the motoblur that still come out.
...off my soap box now...thank you.

Verizon is moving over to gsm, which is sim cards, some phones out right now have both. Thats the only way they work. From my understanding, they are pushing out their gsm conversion once they launch their LTE networks
