for the record, i live in south florida and ive seen the coverage maps recently for a ton of the major/mid-major u.s. cities and theyve been adding more of their non-4g towers here in the last month or so, and it has been under the radar quite a bit. it hasn't been a terrible network to begin with... where signal is available obviously.

You'll soon come to grips with the fact that no toher carriers will have 4G anytime soon nad the wait for devices will be well after this one

What will they charge us for 4G service is the question, not to mention how much for the phone! Anyone wanting a phone outside of a need for a physical keyboard this is the best phone bar none.

currently there is no difference in cost for the 3g/4g plans in comparison to the straight 3g plan. this is not expected to change when the 4g handsets launch.

Whatever the plan price, I'm sure it'll be cheaper than AT&T and Verizon smartphone plans.

I must say tht this is a phone id pay for. im not into an all-touchscreen phone, but its a nice phone to have. i have sprint and im eligible for an upgrade in may so i can hold out till this phone is available. this phone is as close to the i-phone as sprint is gonna get

are you really comparing this to the iphone? as if the iphone is better? LMAO! This phone is on a whole nother level then the iphone.

as an AT&T employee, im not biased to say tht the i-phone is the best phone ever. it did change the way we view phones, but this phone is very nice and i give sprint its props for having phones that are worth paying for. the only thing tht makes the i-phone vulnerable is the AT&T network which could supernova at any time lol. my woman has the i-phone and im gonna get this phone and say that mine is better than hers by a long shot lol

+1 for that! I wish I could be there when you go to work that day at AT&T and bust out your Evo.

my friend has an iPhone and theres an ap that pumps out little EVO babies and they poop and pee hundred dollar bills. their middle fingers are little ATT cell antennas so you have perfect reception all the time. and after you open up the app, your iPhone sprouts wings and washes your car. PPPPPPPPTTTTBBTH. hey sprint....THIS EVO PHONE IS GOING TO BE AWESOME. not an iPhone killer, a cellphone crusher. nice job HTC. this thing is great!
