Here is your "100% positive answer":

Second, it is technically possible but definitely not achievable by any reasonable standard to activate an Evo on Verizon. Unless you have an inside contact at Verizon with the required access, you are out of luck. Verizon will only activate Verizon-branded phones. In order to activate a Sprint phone, you would need to know someone at Verizon that has the proper access (and is willing to risk their job) to add the Evo's ESN to Verizon's approved ESN list. Assuming you did made it that far, you would now have voice and text message (and maybe 1xRTT) data access for your Evo. You would then need to do some reprogramming of the phone on your own to get 3G working. Bottom line, unless you know what you are doing and know someone at Verizon who has the proper access that is required to get it done, then getting an Evo to fully function on Verizon is not possible.
