  1. I'm an IT guy for the last 30 years and a sprint customer for the last 12 years. I'm a 4G early adopter in Detroit. I got the original HTC EVO 4G in June 2010 during the launch weekend. I've never able to benefit from 4G because it was never deployed in the Detroit area. I got my HTC EVO 4G LTE in June 2012 during the launch weekend. (do you see a pattern here?). I'm really looking forward to using 4G this time and I'm anxiously awaiting for our deployments to begin. I plan to use this site to track deployment status with a specific focus on those cities who used the same subcontractors that Detroit will be using. I'm looking forward to interacting with other members especially those with the HTC EVO 4G LTE. Lastly, and most importantly, I would like to thank S4GRU for providing information, insight and a community for "us" the real people that use Sprint 4G services. - Mitch
  2. *****WIPE DATA FOR GOOGLE WALLET BEFORE FLASHING THIS OR ANY ROM**** PLEASE DO A FULL WIPE AND USE THIS BEFORE FLASHING This ROM is a continuation of the CleanROM franchise originally created by Scrosler (Optimus S, Evo 4G, Evo 3D, HTC Rezound, AT&T HTC One X, and a new tablet every week) CleanROMs will be made for the Evo 4G LTE by Benny3 (BE) and Newboyx (DE) with the permission and guidance of Scrosler This ROM is targeted to the towards the user that wants a taste of AOSP with a Sense twist.

This ROM is "DE". There is also "BE" which is a very similar ROM but it has much more Sense remaining. They are both built on the same base. I will be following this thread to provide any help if it is needed.

Feel free to post any feedback here or any of the other sites.
  3. I will be in the Windsor area of Canada for a short time next week and I want to know if the EvoLTE will work there. Sprint's list of devices that will work doesn't list this phone. It may not have been updated in awhile. Anyone have any experience with roaming in Canada?
  4. I'm in the D.C/Baltimore market and I have been painstakingly holding out on upgrading my EVO to the LTE EVO for the primary reason of Sprint not launching the LTE network in my area yet. I figured I could wait it out for about a month or so but now it's pushing two months and I'm getting antsy. The storm that hit us last week doesn't help either so I know the launch must be delayed by however many weeks. I did read that sprint is also improving their 3G signal strength as a buffer to launching the LTE network but I've always had 4G coverage and when I'm in 3G coverage, it's annoyingly too slow for me. To make matters worse, my EVO is stuck on the 2.3.5 version update which had to have been the worst software update ever so my phone constantly restarts HTC Sense. I use the wireless hotspot as my primary source of internet and I have never had a good experience with the hotspot feature while in 3G coverage.
  5. I have been noticing that my battery life has been decreasing lately and I couldn't figure out what it was. It was still pretty decent but I noticed that my idle life wasn't as good as my first few days with the device. I noticed that the phone was staying awake a lot more often. I downloaded an app to help diagnose the problem but it never pointed me directly to the process that was keeping the device awake. Based on the screenshots below do any of you have an idea of what the problem could be? As you can see, of the 9hrs 46mins the device was on battery it was awake for almost 9hrs. My total screen on time for that period was about 1 hour. What do guys think? I also left my phone off the charger last night and finally experienced the SmartSync phenomenon. The battery savings were tremendous as the device used almost no battery once SmartSync kicked in.
  6. White EVO on the way? http://www.phonedog....ding-to-sprint/ Edit: Image: http://shop.sprint.com/global/images/promos/portin_phonewall_700x150.jpg
  7. Is sprint going to use a new "logo" 4G LTE indicator on phones like Verizon and AT&T or go with just 4G. In the picture of the Evo it is just 4G. Seems like if they want to keep customers informed about their technology they would differentiate them?
  8. I found this review for the HTC EVO 4G LTE on Engadget http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/10/htc-evo-4g-lte-for-sprint-review/ One thing that they pointed out that kinda left me thinking is that Sprint has apparently chosen to embed the SIM card, making impossible to remove without taking apart the phone. I was really hoping their phones would become more like GSM phone where I can simply take a phone from carrier to carrier. Does anyone know why Sprint chose to lock up the phone like this?
  9. by Danny Bullard Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Wednesday, April 4, 2012 - 9:45 PM MDT Earlier today, HTC and Sprint announced the highly anticipated next generation EVO, dubbed as the EVO 4G LTE. Kinda of a long name huh? Well it's not about the name, it's about the device itself. The EVO 4G LTE has a HUGE 4.7" 720p screen with a Super LCD2 display. Powering this device is ICS covered with SENSE 4.0 with Qualcomm's S4 chip. This device is basically Sprint's version of the ONE X, so it has an impressive 8MP camera that can record up-to 1080p video. Along with those fancy specs, this device will run on Sprint's soon to debut 4G LTE network. Other specs include a NFC chip, Micro SD Card slot, Beats audio, red kickstand and a 2000mAh battery. This device will also be the first device to feature HD VOICE (I will go into detail in another article). When most devices are announced, release dates and prices are left out. Well, Sprint was so kind/sarcasm to tell us when we can pre-order this monster and how much this will cost us. Preorder for the EVO 4G LTE will begin on May 7th and it'll only cost you $199.99! Pretty reasonable, eh? So, will you be purchasing this bad boy once it hits Sprint stores? Sound off in the comments. Also, EVERYTHING you need to know about the device is listed in the PR below the photos. Photos courtesy of HTC.
  10. Today is Sprint and HTC's press event. Just curious, what is everyone expecting to see today? Anyone expecting something other than the Evo variant of the One X?
  11. Looks like the new evo supports 2 LTE bands(2 and 25). Thought it was just one band myself. http://www.htc.com/us/products/htcevo4glte-sprint#tech-specs http://niviuk.free.fr/lte_band.php
  12. Exciting news! Especially the thought of it being called the "Evo LTE." Sure, it's only a name, you can name it anything you want. But the Evo has been such a staple for Sprint's Android lineup - why change a good thing, right? Source: http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/02/29/rumor-is-sprint-getting-its-own-variant-of-the-htc-one-x-or-something-eerily-similar/ (Well, where I got it anyway. The original source is referenced.)
  13. Scott Johnson Sprint 4G Rollout Update Sunday, March 25, 2012 - 5:00 AM MDT Every Evo ever released on Sprint’s network has been manufactured by HTC. Does this necessarily mean that it is exclusive to HTC? The “Droid” line of Verizon phones have been manufactured by Motorola, HTC and Samsung. Would Sprint consider extending the Evo name to another handset maker as Verizon has done? Sprint and Evo [float right][/float]The Evo “franchise” has defined Sprint’s Android line of phones since the HTC Evo 4G burst onto the scene and redefined the way we look at smartphones. The mere fact that Sprint still sells the device nearly 2 years after its release is telling of how great a handset it is. HTC followed up the success of the Evo 4G with the HTC Evo Shift 4G, a slider phone with a physical keyboard. The HTC Evo 3D is seen by some as the successor to the original Evo, but others see it as a whole different offering, due to its inclusion of 3D camera and glasses-free 3D screen. The final smartphone in the Evo series is the smaller, lighter, world phone, the HTC Evo Design 4G. HTC also produced a tablet with Evo badging, the 7 inch HTC Evo View 4G. Verizon and Droid [float left][/float] Similar to Sprint's Evo line, the “Droid” line of phones has defined Verizon’s high-end Android powered phones. Some argue that the Droid line has been watered down with a steady stream of Droid badged phones hitting shelves. There have been 15 “Droids” released starting with the Motorola Droid in October 2009. This amounts to a new Droid every 2 months on average. Motorola has accounted for nearly 75% of the models, but HTC (3) and Samsung (1) have also provided Droid branded models to Verizon. My-Touch T-Mobile’s “my-touch” line, while not known as high end phones, but more of a family friendly line, has seen models from HTC and LG. Even Huawei is rumored to be manufacturing a my-touch model for T-Mobile’s network. Samsung Galaxy [float right][/float]One might say that the Evo branding is HTC’s brand, similar to how Samsung has used the “galaxy” branding. Samsung has released “galaxy” smartphones, tablets and even android powered media players. The difference is that Samsung’s use of the galaxy badge has extended across carriers and, as seen with the media players, extended to non-wireless carrier electronics. The Evo brand has stayed with Sprint, with no “Evo” branded electronics being released (other than an international GSM version of the Evo 3D) which makes it appear to be Sprint exclusive. What does the Evo future hold? What can we expect from Sprint’s Evo line moving forward? Many think that the HTC Jet will be the next in the Evo line, but it has been rumored on this very site that HTC may abandon the Evo name to consolidate their product line. With the original Evo and Evo Shift getting “long in the tooth,” will Sprint find successors from any willing manufacturer to refresh their iconic line with a slab and slider? What manufacturers should Sprint consider, and would those manufacturers be willing to shed their own brands and assume the Evo branding? Should Sprint let the Evo name ride off into the sunset if HTC abandons the line? There are a lot of questions surrounding the name “Evo,” but we could see at least a partial answer on April 4th when HTC and Sprint announce their most recent collaboration.
  14. by Jeff Foster Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Monday, February 27, 2012 - 2:21 AM MST Earlier this year, both HTC and Samsung stated in reports that it will be slimming down its product lines in order to reduce expenses, concentrate on higher quality and to lessen the effects of diluting similar product lines. Samsung has hinted that the Galaxy S lll will be launched simultaneously in many markets, and would eliminate the U.S. carriers from individual looks and independent features. Now HTC has introduced its "One" (several discussions are taking place on individual phones already) brand which appear to cover the entry, mid and high level markets. The new "One" phones will be equipped with Android 4.0, Beats Audio and a "toned down" Sense UI. This new Sense will be more Android like and less resourse intensive. It appears like HTC was listening to customer complaints of Sense UI taking too much memory and interfering with performance. HTC appears it has taken its cues from Samsung and its success from the GSll series of devices that boosted Samsung's bottom line. HTC is hoping that this new strategy and new Ice Cream Sandwich devices will help HTC climb back towards the top spot and return to a position of reporting record profits. So are you sad, angry or relieved that the Evo badge may be no more? S4GRU members have been commenting and speculating since October 7th on the next Evo LTE device anticipated. Sound off with your thoughts below. Source: CNET
