Every month or so I would stop by the local SPRINT service center and chat with 'the guys' and the story was always the same: "'s happening, but I, I can't say officially, uh, I mean, they're workin' on it, but it should be here by (some date in the future), BLAH BLAH BLAH.."!

After reading the latest hype on SPRINT'S release this week of the next EVO 4G (LTE) my thoughts went back to my personal experience with SPRINT. This time I am doing my homework! Is LTE service available in my market? According to what I have read, no. In fact, according to THIS ARTICLE you might be surprised to know how many markets they are actually in!

Bottom line - I won't be replacing this great phone until SPRINT has the infrastructure in place in my market.
Stated to you by a SALES rep is not the same as an official announcement from Sprint. You said it with their comment, "I can't say officially" meaning they are just GUESSING. Sales associates are going to tell you what they need to tell you to make a sale. Period.
