    I had purchased my Evo 4g from EBay and the seller failed to mention that,
    This phone is locked so now i can't have it activated through any carrier, so I need some advice.

    welcome to AF!!!!!!!

    ok just an fyi unlocking usually refers to gsm phones and sim cards. with the htc evo 4g (the og evo) it uses cdma technology. most carriers that i know may not or willing to have the phone flashed to another network. some like straight talk might, but i can't be positive.

    the seller might mean that the bootloader is now locked and will need to be rooted (s-off or unlocked) to get flashed to another network.

    i would go here for info: EVO 4G - All Things Root - Android Forums

    and here are some links:

    if this is what you are trying to do then i can move this thread there if you like.
