Clock strikes 12, Sprint now offering EVO 4G online

Clock strikes 12, Sprint now offering EVO 4G online
With Sprint stores on the East coast set to open within a few hours, the online store is now offering the nation's first 4G enabled phone. The HTC EVO 4G is $199.99 after a $150.00 instant savings, a $100.00 mail-in-rebate and your signature on a 2 year contract. From the amazing 4.3 inch display to the 8MP camera and the 1GHz Snapdragon processor on-board, everything about this phone says speed and class. Oh, if you were planning on cornering the market and selling the handset for double the retail price-forget it. Sprint is on to your nefarious scheme and has put a 5 phone limit on web orders.

You say that as if its a con... 4g service is a pro. and regardless of its 4g... the evo is the best phone in the market. period. Just got mine this morning and cant put it down. I'm very critical to each new phone I get and I honestly cant spot one bad thing about it. you must either be a fan boy, stuck in a contract, or cant afford it. This really is the best phone in the US. Anyone against it obviously hasn't had one.

The EVO is the best phone on the market? Only until the next iPhone or next Android come out...The Evo is just as good as or slightly better than the Incredible or Nexus One. Typically Android phones just eclipse themselves because another one comes out every 90 days

iPhone lost its "cool factor" a couple years ago. But in a few months I'm sure another cool Android device will surface, but the EVO will still be on top with the I'm sure EVO owners are not worried about wasting money at all.

ACTUALLY if u live in a area where there 4G is not up and running yet then you DO NOT have to pay for the service! Do your research before you open your mouth. You make yourself seem like a idiot at times. PLUS Sprint is cheaper by far compared to big red and blue. I pay 180 for unlimited EVERYTHING for 4 lines... whereas i would pay 370 on verizon and at&t... So how am i getting scammed? Apparently you failed math class.

Double, please tell us what other phone is comparable to the Evo on another carrier and inform us of the monthly cost to twit. I promise you it will be cheaper that any others out there. In fact, even Sprint's Simply Everything Plan is still cheaper.

I dont get why so many people are complaining about the $10 charge. For one... its still the cheapest data plan you'll find throughout any carrier. 2, that $10 fee that is charged for 4g is going into funds to improve the network so that you can one day have 4g... and 3, if its really that big of a deal to you, I'd recommend you get eBill. If you get your bill online rather than in the mail, you'll save an additional $5 each month so pretty much making the $10 premium service fee only $5. And if that still too much for you maybe you should look elsewhere and try and find a smart phone with the same features for a cheaper price... oh thats right. you wont. :D

I actually really like the Evo 4G. If iPhone 4 and iPhone OS 4.0 wasn't good, this would have been in my hands right now. But as someone already stated, it will either be eclipsed by iPhone or another android phone in the next few days/weeks/months. That's just how Android phones work.

People who went out and bought this phone, what can you say about it? How's the battery life? What size battery? I know my Incredible's battery life is horrible compared to my Blackberry.

i've had mine for about a week and i get better battery life out of my evo then my hero... it's an awesome phone i love it i have not had any problems with it as of yet and playing games and watching movies on it is amazing. Can't beat this phone right now.... the 4g is amazingly fast and the hotspot feature works great i can be talking on my phone and on the internet on my lap top at the same time .... everyone should be getting this phone

Does anyone know if the Motorola Droid Shadow is going to have a faster processor than the Snapdragon Processor?

The Evo is the best phone out right now(maybe even better than the iphone) And I would go out right now and buy it If I didn''t have to pay that stupid 10$ premium fee. And they want me to pay 30$ to use the hotspot tool, are they retarded? Sprint is turning into ATT.

Thank you markemark +1 Some people just done't get it... ...I want 3 acres of land with the purchase of my new home, but I don't want to pay for it... I'm entitled to it.... Idiots.

You must be retarded if you are bitching about having to pay $30 for the hot spot feature. A stand alone hot spot air card is minimum $60 from anyone. And that's with a 5 gig cap. With the Evo's hotspot you pay half as much as you would normally and, best of all, THERE IS NO DATA CAP! Sprint is turning into AT&T? No. You are mentally unbalanced, dipshit.

checked out the EVO today @ the Sprint store...liked the phone...Sprints system was down for a couple hours today and started running slow around 1pm EST..this is good...I think they had an "iPhone day"...cant wait to see the #'s on monday and then the eclipse of the iPhone...rats

I really honestly don't think that's going to happen. "It's 4.30AM in Washington DC and... we've got another queue-less Sprint storefront to gaze upon. At this rate, we might need to go create the lines ourselves." - Engadget no doubt the phone will have great numbers, but let's not get too ahead of ourselves just yet now with the "Eclipse of the iPhone."
