Sprint phones to another carrier?

I've got an issue with the way I'm being treated by Sprint now. I won't get into the details, but I'm not a complainer and I've been using them for about 13 years. I've got a total of six lines on two different plans on my account.
I've been searching the other company's websites and am going to start visiting them in earnest this weekend (at physical stores).
My main question is, can I bring any of my Sprint phones to any other carriers? I know they are CDMA phones, so that limits things. I have two EVO4Gs and two HPalm Pres. The others two phones could go their own way- I'm only concerned about these four lines. Right now, I've got 2000 min that I never use (because of Sprint's mobile2mobile) and unlimited text & data. That's basically what I want for these four phones (I'll bring the other two lines over if the price is right).
Anyone know if these phones will work on Verizon, MetroPCS, Virgin or any other CDMA network in Florida?

Cell phone buying guide - CNET Reviews

Check that out, As far as I knew & that cleared it up, You cannot use a CDMA phone on a GSM service.

Re: Sprint phones to another carrier?

Yup, dump the phones on ebay and cut your losses. I'm either gonna gripe my way out of a contract or come up with the $$ to cover etf, but I and Sprint are done. My question is with all the phones available on other carriers, why hold on to a Sprint phone?
