Okay, Where did my Netflix App Go?

Upgraded to 2.3 on my EVO, Netflix wouldn't launch after that, so I uninstalled with intent to reinstall and when o went to the market it was not there! Very Upset About This... Now what will I do at work?
Maybe work?
Are you getting the white screen or no app at all?
If i remember right, the Netflix app works on android 2.2, not 2.3. Just need to wait for Netflix to update the app and resubmit to the market. Again, I could be wrong, thats just what i think i remember.

Sprint 4g Sucks

Evo 4G (that's a joke)
I've got two of these phones. Basically like them, but give me a break on the 4G. It is totally retarded. I shuffel between two covered cities and travel to others. When I click on the 4g antenna the antenna comes on, but the phone rarely switches to 4g and if it does it is brief and never operates in 4g. If I do any data I lose what tiny amount of apparent 4g I get. This method of communication is less reliable than carrier pigeon. Don't buy it for Sprints 4g service. It is shockingly disappointing.
you try and put a multi billion dollar project in a short time! why do you think its done gradually. Rome wasn't built in 7 days ya know. 4G is still in its baby stage, don't expect any real coverage till 2013-14 if not later.
It's the 2.5GHz frequency that is the problem and cost a $hit load to provide sufficient coverage using it. More towers = More $$$ which Sprint doesn't have. So don't look for any improvements anytime soon.

If you want REAL 4G go to Verizon Wireles...
What does any of this crap have to do with the release of Gingerbread? Oh that's right, nothing. 🙄
4G works great in L.A. I get consistent speeds at ALL TIMES. 😁
Eugene Oregon right here. Constant 3-5mbps with my tether. Sorry your having such issue. There is tweeks to get the signal better in the phone and it will hold a connection better. I am right outside of the 4G cusp but get 2-3 bars constantly inside a...
Well in Austin, TX. 4g on my EVo works great. By the way, Sprint never said the extra fee ($10) was for 4g. Some of the reps did but they were not supposed to..Now all smart phones require the premium data fee..
OK, so even though I don't get why you get shoddy service I'm still trying to figure out why you are trolling this article with something that is off topic. I get good 4G service on my EVO and most of my friends do to. But considering this is an artic...
WIMAX is only crappy in crappy parts of the country.. 🤣
