    I want to get rid of my Hero since the EVO is coming soon. But its pretty obvious that unlike GSM phones I cant just pop the SIM and sell it.

    I need some help on how to sell my phone and stay on contract the same time... I want to sell it before release day for the EVO so it wouldnt be as simple as pushing over my number to the EVO.... SO how do I sell my phone and keep my contract going. help please??

    You'd have to switch it to a different phone first. If you have an old phone laying around, you can simply esn swap when your phone is sold. Your best bet, put it on ebay/craigslist a few days before the evo launch date.

    Most likely a smart buyer will ask for the ESN before they commit to buy to make sure its clear. So you are going to have to get the phone off the line prior to selling it.

    Why not just wait until you have the EVO in your hands and then put your Hero up for sale?
