I've been really impressed with how responsive ting has been in these forums--so much so that I'm planning on coming over early June when our 2 year contract with Sprint is up.
One issue I've seen mentioned in passing here, but never explicitly dealt with, is what we can and cannot do legally when it comes to bringing over phones from Sprint by hacking the ESN. My wife and I have 2 Evo 4G's, and I'm almost ready to take the plunge and buy cdma workshop and 2 Vero's to bring the Evo's over. But as I've looked into it, I keep coming across statements (in other forums) that any kind of altering of a phone's ESN is against the law (much in the same way as changing a car's VIN would be). Does anyone have a definitive answer for whether or not that is true and what is allowed by law? I'm willing to bite the bullet and buy 2 new Android phones if need be, but if I can be sure that hacking the ESN is legal, I'd love to keep our Evos.
Thanks in advance for whatever help you can give!
