    Question How to Change Phone Number? - Stalkers!!!

    Hello everyone!

    I tried searching for this topic but didn't come up with what I was looking for.

    To make a long story short, my wife is being stalked by a former boyfriend and friend and we want to change her number (phone is a flashed HTC EVO 4G.) She went into the local cricket store today and said that they wouldn't do it because the S/N belonged to someone else (I'm assuming the former verizon customer that sold me the phone on eB@y...)

    How can we change her number? I have a paying member account on this forum for ESN changes. Is this something the forum can do for me? Also to delete the S/N belonging to us AND someone else?

    Thanks in advance,

    Is the phone working with her current telephone number? If it is, then you don't have to worry. If not, then the phone could be locked onto another account and will not be able to be activated until the original owner cancels the line or doesn't pay the bill.

    You can try use the ESN change form and entering into the notes to only change the MDN and not the MEID. The problem is going to be the flash on the phone. You may need to re-flash the phone with the new information. We also sell flashing services on this forum if you don't know how or you can use the forums and try to figure it out yourself. I don't think performing a *228 will update everything that needs to be updated on the phone.

    An experienced flasher please chime in here and correct me or elaborate for better understanding....

    The phone is working with the current phone number. I paid Chris to flash it for me 3-4 months ago and I'd hate to pay again just to change the number...

    On another note, is there a way to block calls and texts from certain phone numbers?

    I am pretty sure the Evo 3D had a built in feature to block people from their contact list. Not sure if updates to the Evo 4G allowed that as well.

    I use Mr Number. If you really need a number change, I can get a dealer to do it and reprogram the phone for 10 bucks if I'm on the live chat. If the calls are serious enough that you have filed a formal complaint with the police, forward that info, and I'll do it for free.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!
