Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
Thursday, May 17, 2012 - 12:06 PM MDT

 

It appears Sprint is moving forward with a revised launch date of the EVO LTE on Wednesday, May 23rd. Our source yesterday said that Sprint was working toward the 23rd. The blog Inside Sprint Now is reporting that the 23rd appears to be a go.

In an e-mail to one of our Sprint sources for more information, he did confirm that May 23rd is being said internally, but he has no details about the specifics of the authorizations from Customs or the supply chain. We will release more details with updated information about the EVO LTE deliveries as we know more. However, S4GRU Members who purchased from Best Buy are starting to get updates about a May 23rd delivery. Fingers crossed...

UPDATE 12:30 PM MDT: Inside Sprint Now is reporting that they are working on shipping pre-orders earlier to arrive prior to the revised launch date of May 23rd. Our source was unable to confirm that at the time of this update.

What is your question?

So with this new EVO fiasco, is Sprint CS to blame or Sprint CEO? I still have a beef w/Sprint and releasing 4G/LTE in Little Rock.

Anyone order through Wirefly and received their phone yet? I chatted with CS yesterday and was told they have not received them from Sprint yet. I found this slightly confusing as I thought that Wirefly was receiving them directly from HTC like BB did. Any insight? Thanks

Just got this email from Wirefly:

 

Dear ***,

First, let me say that I am very sorry for the inconvenience that you have experienced with your preorder of the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE through Wirefly. Although the situation was completely unexpected and out of our control, this is certainly not the sort of customer experience we endeavor to provide.

Each time we consider offering a preorder for a device, we carefully weigh the information we have available to us and make a decision based on whether the customer experience will be a positive one. I can assure you that had we known the inventory challenges this smartphone would experience, we would have chosen not to offer a preorder.

At this point, you probably know that inventory for the HTC EVO 4G LTE is severely constrained nationwide. The latest information we have is that US Customs officials only released a small fraction of the popular smartphones last week and the entire first shipment was just released (see article for additional information). We are in constant contact with Sprint and will send you an email with the latest information as soon as we can.

In the meantime, we appreciate your patience. We think that we offer great value and a positive customer experience. This situation doesn’t sit well with us at all. In addition to your Wirefly Preorder Price Guarantee, that guarantees you’ll pay our lowest price for up to 30 days after the device officially launches, we are also upgrading your shipping to Next Business Day at no additional charge. It isn’t much, but we feel it is the least we can do considering how loyal you have been to us.

Thanks again for shopping with us. We greatly appreciate your business and hope to be shipping your new HTC EVO 4G LTE smartphone soon.

Sincerely,

Andy Zeinfeld

Chief Executive Officer

I was gonna get this phone but it sounds buggy as hell

 

Really? I've read quite a few reviews on this thing, none have mentioned anything about it being "buggy," Nor have I seen anything like that in the user reviews at forums I read. Care to share anything with some actual substance?
