re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
Ditto...I have been a loyal Sprint customer for 15 years. Bought the Evo 4G (my latest Sprint phone ) and so far have shelled out $ 240 for 4G service that never came. A WHOLE LOT of people have been ripped off by Sprint in this way. And now no ICS for my EVO ??? Come on Sprint...you guys need a realty check.

re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
Ditto on the loyal customer comments. I have never been with another carrier other than sprint. Bought the EVO 4G with the promise of 4G coming to my area which it never did. $240 later ($10 extra per month) they are jumping to LTE and still not in my area. Love the EVO but dont trust Sprint to deliver 4G.

re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
I have been with Sprint for over 10 years. Had all the Treo's, and HTC's. You would have thought the way they treated Hero users this thread wouldn't even be discussed. And yes I stayed (putz) now I have the Evo4g. My contract is up and I am shopping. Sprint is late to the game on phones and they don't care anymore if you have issues with a current model. And I am paying full price for a phone and never getting in the renewal rebate game again. They replaced a defective phone and then they set my available for new phone back 6 months after my contract expired. Funny as hell. And now they cant tell me how they did it and say they can't fix it. You get what you pay for with them which is a bad phone selection, missed promises on 4G availability, crappy support and now no preferred customer plan. Adios!!!!

re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
I love the Evo phones, I have both the 4g and 3D. I plan on getting the 4g LTE, but my biggest gripe is how Sprint has done away with their Gold Premier program. How do they plan on keeping loyal customers if they get rid of the program that rewarded them. The only big reward was the fact that you were eligible for an upgrade every year, now they are making you wait 20 months. As a 10 year + customer, I find this new policy change rather punitive for someone that has shown nothing but loyalty to sprint. I do hope they stop trying to be like the other companies and focus on the aspect that sets them apart (mainly the yearly upgrade and true unlimited for the best price out of the big 4!)

re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
I don't understand why people are so hung up about the looks. Do you just sit there and stare at the phone or what? I would hardly call this the "the same old gody evo 4g" either. Look at the specs again compared to the EVO 4G.

I would jump on this phone in a heart beat....but. The concern I have is regarding the network. I've had WiMax 4G coverage in my area for a long time and even though their website map shows I should be getting a good 4G signal at my location, I get zero. So basically I've been paying the $10 4g charge for 2 years with no service. Maybe switching out to LTE will fix the coverage issue, but unfortunately I'm afraid the only way to find out will be to get locked in for another 2 years. I'm pretty confident that I won't be able to trust Sprint to be honest about the true coverage area of their network.

re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
I have to agree why would I stay with Sprint they are no better then apple.. they repackage an old phone and call it new... I wanted a new design not the same old gody evo 4g. I like the looks of the white HTC One X and was hoping that would be the design. I think they really blew it... the specs of the phone may be awesome but the look of the phone hasn't changed much and the fact you can't change the battery is a dead NO for me.

re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
Dream on Sprint!!! I've been a loyal customer since 1997 and never thought of moving onto a different carrier till now. I was one of the victims that bought into the idea of 4G and purchased the HTC EVO 4G. Almost two years later, the service is yet to come to my city of 1.3 million people. And now Sprint is asking me to hang on and purchase another phone. Dream on....

re: HTC EVO 4G LTE: Sprint Bets Future On it
Kind of hard to remain loyal, both to Sprint and HTC. Sprint never brought 4G service to my area and HTC no longer supports the EVO 4G for an upgrade to ICS. And yes, my 2 year contract is coming up for renewal and I'm now thinking Samsung may get my business. Not sure if I will stick with Sprint or not, just not certain they will ever follow through get me "up to speed".
