Hi have an HTC incredible (Android) that I no longer use.  It was on the Verizon network.  I'd like to give it to one of the kids to use but Verizon's prepaid phone cards are only good for 30 days.  T-Mobile has the perfect deal for me in that they offer 1000 minutes for $100 and the minutes are valid for a whole year.  But I don't think the Incredible is compatible with them.  Is my incredible compatible with anyone who has a a similar deal to T-Mobile with minutes that don't expire for a long time?  The kid's not verbose.  Just needs it if taking public transit, needs to get picked up from soccer or whatever.  Thanks.

    Accepted Solution

    No you can not use the HTC incredible on any other network.

    If you were an advanced android user with the ability to alter the programming, you might have a shot at getting it to work on sprint.  I have heard of people hacking verizon phones to work on sprint, but again, this is VERY advanced people.  

    All other networks use GSM, which is not compatible with the radio in the HTC incredible, or mostly all other verizon phones.
