The Android 4.1 update will be available on December 13, according to the document, with a network push scheduled to begin the week of January 3, 2013...

This has apparently been confirmed by Sprint's product page for the Evo:

I've been clicking the update button for a couple hours to no success, so it hasn't started quite yet.

They're good sometimes, not so good other times. In this instance they're pretty fast, it was only a couple weeks ago that HTC started updating the global One X. However, it took Sprint a month longer than AT&T to update the Evo to 4.0.4 / Sense 4.1.

T-Mobile has been doing great so far also. I would prefer I'd the update reprocess were to be a little faster but we all know that's never going to happen.

Sprint is really working hard at timely updates, they recognized its important to their customers. They were first to update the Galaxy SIII and now the EVO. In the past they have also been the better of the big 4, not great by any means but that is life with Android.

Idk if its just my phone or if its some kind of bug, but my beats headphones worked before i updated my phone this morning, now they dont work with the phone, I tried them on another phone and it worked just fine. Is anyone else having this problem?
