    that's what all the other people buying them early said too. Just call forward until Friday. On a good note though, RS in Rochester just called me to schedule my 8:45 appointment to pick up mine! Wohooooo!

    or you can continue calling and get someone ont he phone thats willing to do it. I have had to call like 20 times before a rep finally did it.

    nope. Just dial *73 + the phone number of the EVO on your current phone.

    Your Evo should have a temporary number assigned to it, with a California exchange. The temporary number can be activated, but you will be unable to port your existing number or activate a new line of service on your Evo until June 4th...................

    they said as of yesterday they are unable to do it. something is going wrong in the system and it is going to be overcharging people on there bill.

    How do you use an EVO phone just for wireless if no Sprint Contract? Does this mean you can't use Apps or just can't use the official Android Apps store?

    Or more specifically, without an activated phone #, what can be used on the EVO?

    Not if you have a Simply Everything plan. All call forwarding is free (Conditional and Unconditional) with Simply Everything

    You can do everything through WiFi except make calls and text. And if you're clever enough, you can do those too :)

    Sent from my HTC Evo 'cause that's how I roll.

    It has a temporary number. You use it like any other phone. The app store uses you Gmail, not your number. Use the phone no different than if you were waiting for a port
