How to Get the SPC Code for the EVO

When you activate a Sprint HTC EVO online, the programming page on the website will give you the service programming code. If you didn't save the code when you activated the phone, you can get it from a Sprint agent. The code is required to unlock the phone for programming. You cannot program the phone to a different carrier without it. It also gives you access to other network information, such as the picture messaging server and data settings.

      Advise the Sprint agent you need to program your EVO manually. Accessing the programming menu requires the SPC code. The agent will ask you to dial "##72786#" on the dial pad screen. After you enter the code, the phone will display "Please Enter Password."
