Status: 3G data, SMS, voice calls, and voicemail are working.
(1) CDMA Workshop ($100)
(2) DataPilot 7 ($20)
(3) Sanyo Vero from Ting, fully working ($100)
(4) Evo 3D from Sprint, bought outright, legally, off contract, rooted ($800 original MSRP)
(5) HTC USB Drivers for Android Development
FYI: Because of Ting's repeated encouragement of changing your MEID, I do not believe you are commiting a fraud under 18 USC Sect. 1029: "Fraud and related activity in connection with access devices". However, I am not an attorney and I am not offering any legal advice on this matter. It would be nice to have a professional opinion on this issue, so if there are any lawyers who would like to chime in, please do so. You should also consider your state laws regarding changing serial numbers. Some states have stricter laws. Some require the intent to steal phone service, which, of course, none of us are doing. Note, though, if you clone your phone and use or attempt to use both phones at the same time, you have probably just committed a felony (again, my opinion, not legal advice). This article is the result of researching the effort required to move a phone to Ting. It is for research purposes only.
Step 1: Call Ting and get your MSL for the Vero, which you have all ready setup and activated on your account. They're cool. They'll just give it to you.
Step 2: Plug the Vero into your USB port. The drivers from DataPilot will give you access to the serial port of the phone.
Step 3: In CDMA Workshop, connect to the Vero. Send the Vero the MSL to unlock it (Security Tab).
Step 4: On the Main Tab, read and save the CDMA NAM1 settings. On the Security Tab, read and note the MEID. On the CAVE tab, read the settings and leave them in there.
Step 5: Remove the Vero, remove its battery, and permanently disable it. You are about to take its serial number, and it may not be running at this time.
Step 6: Plug in your Evo 3D and call ##DEBUG#.
Step 7: Use CDMA Workshop to connect to your Evo. Optional: Clear your MSL by writing 000000.
Step 8: Load the file in which you saved the NAM1 profile from the Vero and write it to the device.
Step 9: On the Security Tab, use the HTC method for changing the MEID to match the Vero.
Step 10: Write the CAVE keys.
Step 11: To get Voicemail indicator working you need a stock HTC Phone.apk (the Sprint one is configured for visual voicemail, which ignores the (luckily, standard) MWI indicator message that Ting sends to the phone). Find some instructions to locate a working Phone.apk and replace yours. Requires root, remounting your system, etc. Careful here, you can put yourself in a world of hurt awfully fast if you don't know what you are doing.
That's all. I know it is not very specific, but the Evo 3D works 100% on Ting; 3G data, voice, SMS, voicemail. Mostly just wanted to report the success here. Hopefully Ting will get a list of known working devices going. Or maybe we can do it here for them.
