Calendar is horrible

The calendar is still horrible. It's pretty much useless for those that travel. However, it's a google issue more so than Android. ... » for a better explanation.
However, I really like the phone and will probably keep it and not go back to my blackberry. Obviously, blackberry has the best calendar application ever known to mankind.

I keep searching for a better calendar app but have yet to find one...either paid or free.

EVO Battery

I personally don't have an Evo. I am an iphone user. However, both of my brothers have Evo's and I don't understand why so many people are acting like the battery is so bad. When you spend a ton of time playing games, watching video, browsing the internet, etc. of course it is going to drain the battery. The Evo is a great phone and if you get some kind of app "killing" program, your battery life will be greatly extended. All the apps running in the background after you open them really drains the battery. One of my brothers went 25 hours without a charge with moderate use (some internet browsing, probably about 30-45 min worth of phone calls, text messaging, and played a couple games) and the battery meter still wasn't in the red. From revi...

I currwently have an Iphone 3g and becaue of the Ios4 update I definitely need something else. Ios4 has slowed it down to the point it is annoying. So heres my dilemma:

Do I get an Iphone 4 or do I get an HTC Evo 4g?

Give me honest opinions. I use my phone a lot. Mostly for social networking and texting. i have a lot of apps on my iphone that I love like IMDB and FML but most of what I use it available on Android as well. I know about the price difference, but Ive been paying for ATT for years so it wont be a big deal to continue. Anyway, let me know what you think.

I posted this in the Iphone4 forums too just to be fair.

Is 4 hours the longest you're getting out of your battery???

The problem Is NOT the phone but the settings on the phone. If you don't have a 4G connection but tell your phone to let you know when it becomes available it will indeed drain your battery in a matter of mere hours.

I've seen it in my store, I see it in reviews here. Task killers and closing apps isn't going to help you. Proper setting will. I can get 6-8 hours of HEAVY usage out of my phone, 16-20 hours straight of moderate usage. It's still not phenomenal but far better than what some are experiencing. Here's how to fix your problem.

From the home screen, menu>settings>Wireless & Networks>4G settings, Uncheck the 4G box, Uncheck notify me when a 4g network is available.

Thank me later.

My update went threw with very little issues, a few of my apps stopped working that was it. A guy I work now owns a very dead EVO paper weight, but is getting a new phone sent to him. > I'm glad I made it threw

The update is bricking phones left and right. I just got off the line with tech support and they have confirmed a flaw in the update software. They say they have pulled it's availability in most markets but it still might be out there for some people. DO NOT INSTALL IT!

There appears that the Nascar Sponsor who was dying to get a hold of the rights and their name on the legendary cup series for stock cars are about to go into bankruptcy according to online reports as of late.

Is it any wonder when their fees keep increasing exponentially while their subscribers are reducing at an alarming rate due to in some cases budget cuts, coverage, the lessening of the two-way system that made Sprint Nextel what they were?

As the prices of phones keep going up with the massive unnecessary options, the plans keep getting higher and higher priced as other companies bought up their competition and have rather successfully integrated their plans with little or no changes such as AT&T taking over Cingular Wireless. ...

I cannot believe no one is addressing this serious system bug

The fact that contact ringtones seems to be happening all over according to web forums, but no one seems to be providing any answers. I am so surprised that not even a single person is supplying a reason or a solution for this very serious bug.

Custom ringtones not working

I can assign custom ringtones to contacts but when I get a call I always hear the default ringtone instead of the custom one. WTF?

EVO Hotspot & Voice


Can someone who has the EVO and the HotSpot option please let me know what happens with the phone when you have it in HotSpot mode (3G) and someone calls your phone? Does it go to voice mail, ring, and if you answer does it impact the HotSpot users? What about if you are using a 4G connection?

Facebook contact problems. Need help!!!!

It seems that HTC wants to show all of my facebook friends under the phone button. While this is a cool feature, does anyone know how to only link it to certain friends and not show everyone (i.e. not so friendly exs, bosses, etc). I've tried to only link certain people under the "people" tab, but it still shows everyone when you go back to "phone." Anyone have any ideas?

Changed my mind...Keeping the EVO 4G

Well, cll me wishy-washy but I have changed my mind about returning my EVO to get an iPhone 4.

There are two main reasons.

1. I have fallen in love with the EVO. The speed on 4G is amazing, the screen is unbeatable (that extra size really takes web browsing on a cell phone to a whole new level), and the device is just so customizable. I also love the fact that it currently has Flight Lite and will hopefully have Flash 10 soon.

2. We wasted our entire day yesterday trying to pre-order an iPhone 4 and we were reminded first hand of just how crappy AT&T service really is when you need them.

So for now the HTC EVO 4G is going to be my primary phone. I hope I do not come to regret the decision...but from what I have seen so far I will...

Erratic Wi-Fi signal

I have read on AC forums that folks like me are experiencing erratic Wi-Fi signal, even in the same room as the router.

Anyone else having this issue? Any workarounds?
