It just dawned on me hey where is the SIM on this phone or is there one at all?
no sprint phones (save a very select few) carry SIM cards.
htc evo has no sim card its not a gsm. phone its cdma
Most CDMA phones won't have SIM cards right? Thought that was a mostly GSM feature.
Well I thought my Verizon Incredible had a SIM maybe im wrong. I do know my Blackberry Storm2 has a SIM and its CDMA I think.
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.

Yes it has a sim card. open the back and remove the battery and you'll see it
Thats not a sim card thats your SD card.
how does it connect to a server? can I use any server I want?
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.
I mean servers like optus or telstra.
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?
We can help you when you tell us the name of the walmart plan that u chooses to use . And what carrier are you coming from.
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.
