    no sprint phones (save a very select few) carry SIM cards.

    Most CDMA phones won't have SIM cards right? Thought that was a mostly GSM feature.

    The HTC Incredible and HTC Evo 4g do NOT have sim card slots.

    Very very few CDMA phones are "World Edition" phones.

    My friend's old Verizon Blackberry 8800 was dual edge GSM and CDMA device.

    Proof of no sim. Teardowns of both devices.

    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!

    server? not sure what you mean. if you are talking about the internet then the evo has wifi capabilities. if you are talking network signals then it works only with cdma technology and the phone is porgrammed to be on sprint. you can root the phone and then program it so that it can be used on verizon's towers if you like. but be warned that if you do, you will run the risk of sprint giving you the boot for doing so.

    ok you mean networks. since the evo is a cdma phone you will need to find a provider who has a cdma network. you will also need to have cdma workshop and a donner phone from the provider you wish to be on. now i'm not at all too familiar with all of this.

    but you can use the boost mobile guide to maybe give you an idea on what you need to do. here is the guide:http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/460035-evo-4g-boost-mobile-guide.html

    and here is another one for metro:

    I am trying to use my old evo for a different plan than sprint. Is that possible? I am trying to use the new Wal-Mart plan without buying a new phone.

    Does anyone know?

    the only thing i can provide is some things we have in the EVO 4G - All Things Root - Android Forums

    if you plan on going into another network then i'm not sure as there are not much info out there on flashing the phone to other networks.....the boost guide is good as you can use it as a guide and try it on other networks.....do not use it exactly as i'm not sure if the numbers would be the same.
