WoW, the Evo really is taking off!!!! A lot of people that are buying the Evo are coming over from other networks!

I read this in the forums over @ BGR:

"In line at West Hollywood Sprint store…88 people in line. Bye bye Verizon!"

But those are phones made for Sprint, which you've already established are of inferior quality to begin with.

The same thing couldn't happen with your sacred iPhone, which was manufactured to the far superior standards of (I bow down as I type the letters) ....... AT&T!

Even with your inability to write or type properly in the English language it is still easy to find amusement in your previous failure in understanding sarcasm.

The rep was just letting every hater know that the Evo is a success. 😁 By the way the 4G I-phone had to change the name to 4os bacause its not a 4G network phone. Nice try Apple. All of you Sprint haters can continue to drop calls, miss E-mails, and pay more for what you can't harldy use. I am just a messenger. Stop hating this rep for getting excited and letting everyone know how successful his store was is doing because of a superior device. Of course this phone is not for everyone. Some people just want to perpetrate. You know pretend like they are actually browsing when really they are just sitting there waiting for the page to load. The good news is you can take the I-phone or any other phone from any network and tether on 4G EVO. My ...

Hmm, perhaps Sprint under estimated the Evo's awesomeness!!! Hopefully HTC will be able to keep up with the demand!!!

WoW, 400 people in line, WoW!!!!!!

Umm. . .what the heck does coffee have to do with anything? I don't drink coffee, it's way, way too hot!!!!!

Btw, Rich did an interesting article comparing Tmo's HSPA+ to Sprint's Wimax, you should check it out, it's a really extensive, interesting read, Tmo's upload speeds are quite impressive! It's on Phone Scoops homepage.

I already read it Sprint's 4G is not really 4G which I already knew and it decent but pretty much blows compared to T-Mobile which I already knew too.

Is... well... T-Mobile.

Smaller coverage area. Lack of roaming on AT&T in a *LOT* of places (regional agreements, not nationwide).

T-Mobile FlexPay was the *WORST* thing to deal with.

(glad my place kicked em to the curb in lieu of VZW).

The first rev of new gen 'stuff' normally lags behind the lats gen of old gen 'stuff'.

The crux of the situation is that WiMax/LTE is destined to go higher... Look at WiMax2... LTE2...

while CDMA/GSM is pretty much hitting the ceiling (and raising it in spots) of where it can/will go.

The article is just based on todays tech, not old arguments of coverage, or predictive astrology for knowing the future. Both deserve props.

Yeah well, I would still go with Clear, becase they don't screw people over with some measly 5GB data cap. Speed is useless if it can't be used for multimedia/video, which happens to be data intensive and would eat away 5GB's in less than a week. When I had Clear, I used 30-35GB's/mo.

I didn't. I fell in love with it way before it was released. I feel so sad that I can never own it.

Even if Verizon released an Incredible with a 4.3 screen they would NEVER allow unlimited tethering on 3G/4G for an additional $9.99

Why am I doomed to always cover phones that I cannot have?

So everybodies following each other to the Sprint store, huh? How many do you guys have in stock?

Spec wise I think the Evo is awesome, but in my opinion 4.3in screen is too big for a cellphone.

So are you taking customers ph#'s? And letting them put $ down?

So let me get this straght, 200 now, and 300 *more* on the way?

Jun 4, 2010, 1:06 PM
ya we are giving them cards when they pay for the device that said they paid and it has been signed by our manager to insure no fake ones come in but yes we would have got a total of 500 in a week and expected to sell about 400 by sat

Jun 4, 2010, 1:10 PM
!!!!!!!!!!WWWWOOOOWWWW!!!!!!!! 400 Evo's in one week!!!!!!

Maybe 500,000 nationally? Do you think? I'm talking about by the end of June.

How many of the 200 Evo's you sold just today were new Sprint customers?
