    Do ## codes work on the evo? More specifically, does ##786# work? If not, is there an equivalent to see call timers and refurb status?

    I want to verify that no Sprint employee was playing with my phone once I get it lol.

    Call me compulsive, but I am not letting any of them open my box at all.

    if ##786# brings you a connection menu, like something with an electronic operator reading out options then yes but if it's a phone menu, it might be a little different

    Yes the ##786# code works and it returns a crap load of info, including what you are looking for

    Very few codes on that page that I've tried works on the Evo.

    When i put this code into my phone it brings up a menu called "testing" in the top bar.. then it has 4 menu's

    Phone Information

    Battery information

    Battery History

    Usage Statistics


    When I select Phone information among the various menu options and infomation given there is a dropdown menu under
    "set preferred network type"

    when you select it, there are several options:

    WCDMA preferred
    GSM only
    WCDMA only
    GSM auto (PRL)
    CDMA auto (PRL)
    CDMA only
    EvDo only
    GSM/CDMA auto (PRL)
    Unknown


    So.. does this mean you can use this phone on a GSM or a WCDMA network???

    Anyone who might know I would GREATLY appreciate some insight!!!
