    Hello I just bought a Evo 3G from my friend and when I call sprint to activate it on a new line they are saying I need to sign a 2 year contract that has a termination fee!! How can I sign up just month to month?! Thanks

    What you're asking for is for a prepaid plan and Sprint only works with postpaid(contract) plans. When it comes to prepaid plans on Sprint they use Boost Mobile or Virgin Mobile, but I don't know if they will let you use the EVO 4G on those carriers.

    Pretty sure the evo can be flashed to both metro PCS and boost. Can't see why you couldn't on Vigin also.

    It could be possible since at least boost mobile and virgin mobile use the frequencies as Sprint

    They probably want you in a contract because you are going to have to change your plan to include the premium data fee. After feburary of this year any smartphone activated on a line no matter where you bought it from would have to include the premium data fee. It's not just for 4g anymore.

    As far as postpaid sprint carriers like virgin and metro you may be able to flash the phone but you will not be able to access the 4g that sprint has.

    If you own the phone outright, it has a clean ESN and you don’t have a current account with Sprint, shouldn’t you be able to get Sprint service without a contract? Wouldn’t this be similar to paying full price for a phone and getting service without a contract?
