Has anyone noticed any changes with the hardware from the launch date to today? I know the original EVO had a screen change within 3-4 months of its release. My EVO LTE says its hardware version is 0003. Anyone found anything different on the street?

I got mine replaced through Best Buy, and they gave me a brand new phone to replace my pre-order. It's HW V 0003

 

What software version came with that new phone?

Did you get a loaner phone? If so, what kind? How long did it take to replace?

@themuffinman - We just got a software update right? So would that have changed? If not, i'm happy to look it up.

 

Yeah we just got a new OTA but I wanted to know what was on there when you took it out the box. I am going to pic up my replacement today and I am keeping my fingers crossed that by some miracle its on the older firmware so I can s-off it once I get it.

The odd thing, and maybe I changed this without realizing it, but... On my new phone, the battery life wasn't nearly as good. Turns out, it wasn't turning Wi-Fi off over night in sleep mode and the Wi-Fi was set for "best Experience", so the battery was steady draining all night. Once I switched back, all was right in Evo land again.

Yep the idiots at HTC did that making the WiFi turn off at midnight and back on a 7.. Just one the very many things fixed in aftermarket roms.

Actually, I like this. If I happen to be up, it connects quickly enough, and I sure appreciate the impact is has on the battery.

I agree 100%. The battery it saves is amazing and why do I need Wifi if I'm not using my phone? Also you can plug your phone in to charge and it disables the battery save feature of disabling Wifi.

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
