    Okay so Google searches and searching here hasn't really answered my question, so I'll ask.

    I have a HTC Droid Incredible, the contract ran up on it almost a year ago with Verizon, so it's just been a paper weight.

    Is there anyway I can make this phone straight talk?

    it may be possible:

    But looks like it involves cloning phones, which is in a legal grey area, and not that easy to do.

    Actually it is fairly easy, it just sucks you have to buy a st phone that you wont use and cant sell.

    OK I want to report that this is by far the easiest swap of phones I've ever done. I received the Verizon Droid Bionic from a family member who was done with it. I already had a Straight Talk BYOD account for my Sprint HTC Evo 4G phone. I called them up and told them I wanted to transfer my account to the Bionic device and they sent me a new sim card. I received the card and called them to activate the card, within 10 minutes they got it switched over. I have 4glte service, everything that the phone could do with Verizon, now with straight talk. I didn't have to use the GSM bands or this or that. just that freaking easy...
