Try jamming your SIM card into the SD card slot, maybe it'll work. If it doesn't fit use a hammer to get that sucker in the rest of the way.

It's a smart move by Sprint. First introducing Evo 4G crazy phone to attract attention then quickly introduce another 4G phone with QWERTY for some ppl's special liking...

Yep, it's funny cause it's pretty much the same thing the did with the Hero and Moment, Hero came first followed by the higher stat Moment a few months later, now EVO came first followed by the higher stat Epic. Sprint gives you a cookie and then shows you the cake later lol

haha? besides the slide out keyboard the epic has nothing on the EVO..coming straight from a sprint rep. In this case i'd say Sprint gave you the entire cake first and then suprised you with a delicious muffin (epic). haha

Tmo is getting the Vibrant. Same thing with no keyboard. Not a big deal breaker for me!

Wow, not too many bad things being said about Sprint and this phone, in this thread, I see. Looks like Sprint is quieting you Apple/VZW Fanboy losers.
