Default I plan to get this phone. Who's with me?

Can't wait, I'm all over this phone. Already signed up for the presale. Now I just have to wait for LTE in central FL.

Agreed. I'm not due for an upgrade until early next year, but I'm seriously considering dropping down the money and getting it off contract when it comes out.

The only drawback for me is the non removable battery, I'm more of a charger guy anyway. I was never to keen on charging and carrying extra batteries. How does that effect bootloops and such when on the EVO I'd just do a battery pull.

Definitely pre-ordering it. I think it's a worthy predecessor to the original EVO. Now let's hope the battery life is decent enough.

Ditto. Worthy of the upgrade from the original EVO. Glad I signed up for the $50 gift cards at Best Buy. Should equal the cost of a phone.. Buy 3 get one free .. in a matter of speaking.

HTC has a hard reset, it'll be something like hold the power, vol+, and camera button for 5 seconds and the battery will be shorted and force a clean reboot

Yeah, I wish I would've taken advantage of that promotion while they were having it. Oh well.

When they say this phone is $200 is that after the discount from signing a new contract? Because I have $150 credit and am hoping I only have to spend $50, but that's probably wishful thinking

Yep, that's the new contract or contract renewal price if you qualify.

Depending on your upgrade status, you might skate for $50 - I'm waiting to see if this is true for me as well.

Does this mean you might upgrade from your Evo 3D?

I'm undecided. This will be my last chance to have an annual upgrade, so I'm thinking I'll take advantage of it. I suspect if I hang around this forum too much, I'll end up upgrading for sure.

I'm completely happy with my 3D but for the right price, who knows?

Just as a lot of Evo owners didn't upgrade to the 3vo, a lot of 3vo owners will stand pat on this round.

PS - I'm also thinking of pitching this to WifelyMon, but there's a good chance that if I go near her Shift, she'll pitch me!

Aren't wives fun! Mine isn't such a techie, but we agreed to always get new phones together (something about equality in our marriage). So we are looking forward to it.

How does this $50 credit you all have spoken of work? I'm a fan of not paying full price, after all.

I logged on to Sprint yesterday and got a pop-up that said that I have a $150 upgrade credit good for the next 57 days.

So far, that's all that I know.

I'm willing to bet this phone would have been $300 on Verizon. I mean the Droid Charge was $300 when it came out.

Likewise, but I'm not due for my last upgrade until August so I'm forced to wait and see. Maybe that's a good thing; I love my Photon, and maybe Motorola will wow me with its successor. Either way, I have until the end of the year to decide whether or not to use my last Gold upgrade.

As is my annual custom, I'm back to these forums for my next phone

I've got a fat tax refund with the Evo 4G LTE's name written all over it, so I'm ready for this whether I get it on or off contract (depending on the family plan circumstances).

Verizon definitely would've charged 300 for this phone.. they do that all the time now. Props to Sprint for keeping the 200 price point, even after all the extras they threw in on this thing.

So far, this is my #1 choice for my final gold premiere upgrade, but...because of my great experience with the MoPho and Motorola in general, I'm still going to hold out until the it's been determined/announced if Motorola is going to release another android Superphone on Sprint. Even though Samsung has seemingly made an improvement on support with the SGS II, I'm still extremely hesitant in trusting them.

Agreed! More like $350! But if you got the cash to spend by all means go ahead! My friend was proud to say he was paying $150 for 1 line with the Verizon!?!?!

$150 for 1 line? I pay $35 more for 3 lines and only thing that's not limited is the cell to landline calls (but still enough monthly minutes to cover those). And that also includes insurance for 2/3 lines. Of course, I should mention that it's also because I get a company discount.

My cousin had left Sprint, but recently just came back because pricing was way cheaper than what he would've been paying for T-Mobile (w/ 2 lines).

Anyhow, getting back on topic. I like the phone a lot, but still in wait and see mode. First time in a long time that HTC wasn't automatically my #1 choice. Of course, this wouldn't have happened if the LTEvo was the successor announced last year, instead of the 3vo.

I really like the phone as well! I maybe waiting on another colour from Sprint (Preferably white)! I don't care a Mohpo or a GS3 because of rooting/hacking purposes, and how ridiculous and tideous to root/hack the samung phones!

No doubt about my love for my EVO 3D, but I don't think I can resist not upgrading to such a cool device. There comes a time in your life that you just have to let go. And move on to the next best thing.

Even though my next update is sometime next year. No worries, though, because this device will still be one of the best even up to 2014.

all 3rd party outlets will most likely have pre-sale around the same time as sprint (especially BB and RS). you will PROBABLY get the actual device early june though no date is comfirmed yet

As per my usual yearly phone upgrade that I do, I will be buying this day one most likely at close to full price. My 3D works just fine, however the geek in me has to have the latest that's out, plus I like a few new things they added and fixed.

An Achilles heel for the EVO 4G has been real time battery life (or lack of it). The EVO 4G LTE does not have a [consumer] replaceable battery - if it is a power hog, the phone may be doomed. (The EVO 4G has been a power hog with an inadequate original battery What will be the power draw of the LTE version - stay tuned!)

How did you already sign up for the pre-sale? I thought that wasn't possible until 7 May?

kickstand....works in 3 positions.. both landscape .. and portrait... there are pics of it in all 3 positions out.

battery is larger...2000mah. and with better more efficient parts.. it should be pretty good .. depending on your area's signal strength and usage.

but ...you can wait for the next phone... there is always one coming around the corner.. with different specs.. android and choices!

Actually, using the kickstand while charging will work just like it works on the Photon, since it's much stronger than the kickstand for the EVO or the thunderbolt. You can flip the phone onto the other side and it'll prop up fine.

I'm also waiting to see what Samsung brings with the GS3. I'm not all in with the EVO just yet.

Sorry, I was wrong. They're close (540X960), but not quite where the iPhone 4s is (640X960).
