    I think the only carriers that allow you to use other networks phones are MetroPCS and cricket, and I'm not even sure about cricket. MetroPCS charges you a fee to flash a phone into their system, and it's not guaranteed to work and they don't support every device. A lot of phones back in the day could only get voice and sms working, no Internet or mms.

    I flashed a phone to them a couple years ago, it was a Samsung instinct, I only had voice and SMS until I found how to change some settings via qpst to get Internet working. I can't remember if I ever got mms working but don't think I did.

    Whether it is legally allowed is debatable, and differs from state to state.

    There are guides for flashing the evo 3d to different carriers if you search long enough but good luck getting everything working.

    Imo it's not worth it, just sell your evo and buy a new phone on that network.

    If you want this phone on Sprint just sell your evo for $250 and buy a used evo 3d for like $150.

    Im planing to sell it, but most people dont have VM. Thats why I want to see if it works on Sprint so I can sell it to people with Sprint.

    just put it on craigslist for 225-250 and it will be sold in a matter of days if not the first day and nobody who is already on sprint would buy it since a used evo 3d is so much cheaper.

    its easy to use but always insist on meeting in a public place.if you are not in a hurry to sell i would put it up for $275.that would still be $50 less then what someone would have to pay for a brand new one.if it doesnt sell for that then drop the price.

    It can be activated on sprint out of the box as long as the meid has no bad scans

    Not true, the meid would no longer be in their database plus the Virgin rom would not function properly at least as far as mms is concerned.
