No 4g option?

I came off the original Evo4g and in the settings we were able to activate 4g on command. Now I realize the LTE may not be available for a while but I at least expected to be able to have it on if it was activated. Thoughts?

Not sure I understand your question. You can turn on the LTE radio if you want but all it will do is hunt for a signal and burn battery.

I have kept it in CDMA/LTE for 24 hours now and it doesn't *appear* to have any extra battery drain. This thing seems to sip the juice.

According to the setup guide, the Evo 4G LTE ships with LTE turned on; if you have your phone set up at a Sprint Store they're supposed to switch it off in non-LTE markets (which I guess is everywhere now, technically).

 

Long-term, of course, having LTE on by default makes sense. And from the battery life accounts so far it sounds like LTE is nowhere near the battery hog on this phone as it was on the early Verizon LTE handsets (or, for that matter, how WiMax was on the OG Evo, particularly with the original phone software).

I'm going to leave mine on for awhile based on the reports of others. Although I probably won't be a good test because I always plug in while I'm in the office or in the car so my battery experience won't be accurate.

What's under 4G settings?

 

Nothing now because I am not connected to the LTE network. It just shows Sprint as my provider and a section for IP address which I assume will be populated once I am connected to LTE
