I was going to activate my HTC Hero on Ting, but then I noticed that there's no cost difference if you use 4G. The rate of new phone models is so quick, it doesn't take long for a new one to get pushed down to a lower shelf. So, I just bought a used very good condition Evo 3D (got it rather cheap @$80). I wouldn't mind the HTC Evo 4G LTE, but $455 is a bit steep. They do have a sale going on though, for $404. Samsung 32Gb S3 is $530. Once the LTE network matures, I'll get one. 4G will be enough of an improvement over 3G to satisfy me for another year, I think.
That is great, xevious. You will love the Sprint HTC EVO 3D. That is my current handset. It is very powerful and well built.

Getting it for $80.00 is a great deal. I imagine you grabbed that on eBay as well? Support for the Sprint HTC EVO 3D is still going strong. There are quite a few Jelly Bean based ROMs out there now and they run very well.
