HTC Incredible on Sprint

This is a newbie question since I am still new to the scene, but is it possible for me to purchase an HTC Incredible second hand and use it for Sprint?

if so, what are the complications with that?

Re: HTC Incredible on Sprint

From what I've read in the past, you have to talk to the right rep to get this done but its gonna be a long shot. CDMA providers lock there phones down to there service only unlike gsm phones. Most people here will tell you to just get an EVO 4g. Its worth a try and call sprint but don't expect success. Hope this helps.

Sprint will not activate phones with a VZW ESN and vice versa.

Really? then explain how there are tons of sprint touch pros on the VZW network. It can be done but like mentioned above gotta get the right rep. But seriously just get an evo and save the hasle

Re: HTC Incredible on Sprint

around the time the tp came out vzw was allowing people to add their esn to the system. probably because they felt bad because their tp was so gimped. i don't know but they shut it down a month or two after word got out. they absolutely will not do it now unless you get VERY lucky.

my incredible should be here in a few days... can't wait to get it set up

WAIT..

SINCE THE RECENT ARTICLE OF THE DRM MAKING IT LEGAL TO jailbrake phone to change carriers

does that mean I can bring an Incredible to the sprint store for them to do it for me?

Re: HTC Incredible on Sprint

According to the article it may only apply to gsm phones. Meaning the SIM could be unlocked to be used with other gsm carriers without the carrier giving him/her trouble. Thats my understanding of it.
