Yes there is an insert..it works really well with the blue gel case that sprint is selling when you take the insert out...I'm really curious as to if the otterbox defender will fit in there..I have the blue gel one now..but I will mostly use the defender when it gets here..

Yes I removed the insert but I don't have my seidio surface case yet so the one I am using in the meantime the Otterbox Pink Commuter won't fit it has a flap to cover the port and has the gel case and a hard shell over it. I had the car dock for my 3D and when I docked it I had it ser for Custom Car Home as my default I loved it. But I was going to take my case off just to try the dock so I'll need to put the insert back in I think. But bringing up your home screen in landscape is cool I always had to turn it in the dock before. Thanks!

Once insert your LTEVO in to the car dock it switches automatically in car mode. If you press the home key it brings up the home screens in landscape mode. Works very nicely.

They do have a black case. I just don't know why they haven't released those yet.

My past 2 phones have had Clarivue screen protectors and they don't even list any and Steinheil/SGP says coming soon. I had an old one for my 3D that my friend said he could put on to hold me and make it fit good enough and I said I'll wait but maybe I should.

Anyone been to a sprint store lately? Do they have the black silicone cases yet? The blue one looks nice (as a case, not a color), so I am waiting on the black one so I can grab that and a dock.

That's what I would like to know. The red logo on the black case goes perfectly with this phone.

This is another case I'm looking to get. Yeah, I'm going thin for the EVO this year.

I hear from a lot of people on this forum that have the defender that its actually quite thin..thinner than the commuter for the og..but i guess ill have to wait and see for myself... I have the car dock and zagg shield..and I actually purchased the blue gel case that all the sprint online people got for free ( pre ordered at the shack ) so I have protection for the time being via the gel case and zagg...but I miss having my phone on my hip..I hate putting it in my pocket collecting lint and such

I had posted this deal from justamazingdeals.com for ibeats beats audio headphones from htc. Some people on slickdeals thought the headphones might be fake, but from what I see and hear, these are legit. Only thing is, the buttons don't seem to work with my photon, except for voice command, but they put out some pretty good sound and are the most comfortable earbuds I've ever used. Maybe the buttons work exclusively for htc phones? Hopefully, somebody that got LTEvo also got these and can mention if the audio buttons actually work for controlling the music player.

Again, does anyone have any idea when the black HTC case is coming out? I been looking everywhere. I'm just suprised that Sprint seems content with only carrying the crappy blue one. The black case goes with the EVO LTE perfectly.

jc,

couple of reviews on amazon say the power button cover has caused the power button to get pressed on its own. can you respond on how the case fits? do the holes (the mic hole in particular) align up well?

this looks like a great case for the money. i may place an order for one.

if you have a car dock, does this case fit in the dock?

many thanks for your response...

Mine fits perfectly. I didn't have the issue with the power button and all the cutouts are aligned well.

I read that those having the power button issue were getting a replacement free of charge.

I also have the car dock and it fits fine with the included foam pads.

I don't know anything about your headphones, but if it's of any help, I have not heard of ANY multifunction button support on any Android phone. I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist.

The only thing any Android phone I've seen supports is the single button support -- no advance/backwards, volume, etc., this is only supported by the iPhone. You can download free apps to help give more functionality to the single button though:

Neo,

do you mean specific to wired headsets or across the board?

Thank you for the post! so you need foam inserts to attach to the car dock? are you able to snap a photo of the phone in the case and docked in the car dock so i can see what you mean? if its too much of a hassle do not worry...

I'm not big on aesthetics or worried about what other's think of the look of my phone....however, I do like to keep things looking as nice and sharp as possible (even if it's just for eventual resale). I already have a couple of nice scratches on the glossy black back plastic cover. As I understand it, HTC had to use plastic for this portion to allow radio signals to pass through (as opposed to the aluminum bottom portion). I wonder if there will be HTC or 3rd party alternative replacements for this part??

I don't know how this will be in comparison to uniqueskins or skinit, but it's worth a shot:

Design Your Own HTC EVO 4G LTE Custom Skin - HTC EVO 4G LTE

Same concept of designing your own and doesn't add bulk to the phone, but does give your phone its own "unique" style by designing it yourself with whatever pic you want to use.

Too bad it was right after the 20% off coupon :-( When's the next coupon going to be available? I need to order two.

3M US: Fingerprint Fading Protectors: 3M Specialty Display Products

How can fingerprints just fade? Sounds too good to be true almost. And with nothing to back up their claim I am very wary. Although it is 3M. They have a name associated with innovation and quality. Either way my curiosity is piqued.

(This likely won't be made for our devices so it is probably a moot point to most of you. I'm just interested in the newest/different choices available to the market)

The 3M fingerprint fading protectors I mentioned above are probably Oleophobic, but they have got to have something else going on in order to make fingerprints "magically disappear"
I'm not sure if anyone else found these 3M Fingerprint Fading protectors interesting before when I mentioned them; this is about the only article I have found so far that attempts to explain of these new screen protectors and the technology behind them. Speculatively, sounds a bit like they were possibly working on something like an oleophobic type screen protector in the labs and they discovered a happy accident, which they patented quickly.

Didn't Motorola file a patent for a screen that's supposed to be anti-fingerprint?

Don't worry. I'm sure that Apple already has a patent ready to claim that they were "first." I can just see the headlines about the law suit now.

Sad Evo 4G LTE battery back cover and antenna

My brand new Boost Moblile Evo 4G was dropped a few times, and as a result that back piece that connects the antenna no longer attached to the phone snugly. It wouldn't completely snap back into place and eventually got lost. I called HTC's warrantee department for a replacement piece which cost me 20 bucks. 3-5 business day delivery. On day 6 I called to see where it was, and was told the order didn't process correctly in their system. They had to close that ticket and open another one. An extra 3-5 days...On week 3 I called and even after speaking to a supervisor, no replacement piece anytime soon. Week 4 was told 100 people was ordering the same piece and they were back ordered 57. And that there was not a shipment date! Maybe I'll get it on New Years day...

It's over a month now that I'm paying for a phone that doesn't have a service signal!

I didnt get a chance to get insurance for this phone. So I can't get a free phone replacement. Is there a website where I can order the back door battery cover and get faster results, or is there a way I can get it to get a signal without that back cover? I am at my wits end!

Please assist with advice/information, thanks!

Default Oh my gosh Thank you!

Thanks for the speedy feedback everyone!!! I've been searching for some answers for weeks!
and this is the first time I've ever posted on one of these forums so I was puzzled when I saw my post moved..LOL

Ok so I did search the first responder's link to the accessory website, and yep they are sold out.

Also, I wanted to note that I got the cell names mixed up. I have the HTC Evo 4G, not their LTE design. My phone's back cover looks like the first picture with 2 metal prongs.
Second pic is what the accessory website offered. Do you guys think that will be compatible to my phone? I just want to make sure that once the part becomes available Im buying the one that works.

Here it is... This guy is a little pricey though. I think he knows these are unavailable right now.

Default Qmadix Metalix case

I picked up the Qmadix Metalix snap on case.. its a shame to have to cover up such a gorgeous phone but I dont feel so bad because this case is awesome. Fits so snug and allows the EVO to keep its slim profile. The rubber is high quality, smooth and cool to the touch and really feels nice. And of course that aluminum piece on the back has turned a few heads when Im out I cant compare this case with other brands but Im really happy I bought it. I havent dropped the phone yet thank God but Ill report back when I do to tell everyone how the case held up.

I think I'm just gonna invest in a new phone because it seems there aren't adequate parts out there for the Evo 4G (even HTC's supply doesn't meet the demand for the antenna battery cover/door) compared to the Evo 4G LTE design. Plus I really like the white version anyways. Hope Boost Mobile offers the LTE design On the other hand, I wonder if I should think twice about buying an HTC phone again. Waiting for this replacement part is horrible. I'm paying for a phone I can't even use. But I thank everyone for their input and assistance :-D

They seem legit, but I find nothing on Store Ratings & Reviews - ResellerRatings.com - Find Trusted Stores about them. Nothing negative (good) but also nothing positive (strange) in a google search.

A casual search on ebay found this-

evo 4g lte parts screen | eBay

I did deal with these guys a while back when my kids broke my Moments screen. There was a problem with a bad batch of screens, but they were responsive and easy to deal with. Not a very large sampling, but I would deal with them again (though I hope I don't need to). Good luck!

Default Wireless or pad charging accessory available? (nothing released yet)

I was just wondering if the ltevo had any cool toys such as wireless charging. My good charger chord which was pretty long just broke. It was one of the sprint travel chargers, the one with a battery for charging on the go.
