So I want to sell my phone but I am afraid that if I do and they hit the activate button it will reactivate this phone and make my EVO V 4G usless.

So how do I go about having them activate this phone and getting a new number? do they have to do that online or can they do it by the app?

If you swapped phones, the ov's msid would have been removed from you account. If they hit activate app it will see that phone isn't tied to an account.

It you are completely stock (recovery & rom) and have your spc code you can type ##rtn# in dialer and do a rtn reset and this will remove your phone number and everything from phone

the easiest way to sell your phone without worry is to go back to factory stock using zv9 update. call virgin mobile and tell them you want to pass on your device to another person. theyll take care of the rest by setting the v up with a new account for that person using their pass it on program. now this is only useful if you are selling to a personal friend or acquaintance. online sell is another can of worms.

Yeah I will be selling this on craigslist. So the ##rtn# seems like the best thing to do but IDK how to get the service code.
