Thumbs down My NEW HTC EVO V 4G still has the Sprint logo?!

I ordered the HTC EVO V 4G from the Virgin Mobile website on August 10th AFTER I specifically contacted them to see if they still had the Sprint logo on their phones and they said it's the Virgin Mobile logo now but when my phone arrived today it still had to Sprint logo, wtf?

I'm waiting until it's fully charged before using it and I hope it's not a defective phone with all the issues mentioned below me.

might be the same phone but i find it odd they still have so many sprint branded ones to sell.one would think they would of ran out of them a long time ago and only have the new virgin ones left.

when it comes down to it some people including myself would rather have a brand new one instead of one that has been sitting in the warehouse then flashed with vm software.

This phone never really took off, so thats why they have so many. It's not like they have a shelf life, a phone sitting never used for a year will be exactly the same as one made yesterday

when a product isnt selling well you cut production lines and once you have a decent stockpile of that product you cease all production of it.i been in that field for a long time.that is why i find it odd they still are selling sprint branded ones.they should of ran out of them by now.

now maybe this phone isnt selling as well as vm expected so they slowed down on making new ones and that is why so many people are getting sprint branded ones.

doesnt matter if they dont have a shelf life like i said a lot of people would rather get a new product instead of one that has been sitting in a warehouse.

After reading this message thread I looked at my exchanged Evo V and immediately noticed the Sprint logo was missing from the front at top right which the defective one had (see my 3D focus problem message).

Now I've removed the serial number sticker from the back and... voila! There's a Virgin Mobile emblem molded onto the case, it's not just a decal.

I was a little curious about all this myself after looking around the 'net for info about this phone and noticing the question elsewhere. Go to admit, I was wondering why BBM store would still have the Sprint ones after it went on sale 2 months ago. Bought the original (and defective) one August 1st. Exchanged for current one today.

Oh, and both are the black with red around main cameras not the plum color. Funny that I didn't notice the Sprint logo being gone until now, guess I had been ignoring it real good.

Of course, I have no idea about the internals of these things. Smartphone is very new to me, having gotten by okay using a Motorola RIZR Z3 the past several years without using the GPS or web browser on it and only as a camera phone!

All the problems can be fixed though. I know some of you might not want to root, and all that but, if your like me, and hate waiting for an update from the manufacturer or carrier then I suggest fallowing Leslie Ann's guide as it helps alot. I have not had one resource error sense I have done this. The "Fix everything by turning your phone into an Evo 3d" thread

All right, a proud Virgin Mobile owner!!

They are the same phone regardless. I personally don't like any of these branding/logos. I have a VM branded phone (after swapping a sprint one). So no sprint logo on top, and the VM on the back is covered by the case. If I could, I would get rid off that htc logo on top of my phone as well. I slapped a Star Trek Federation logo on the case instead.

Just picked one of these up yesterday, awesome so far. It replaced my unfortunately dead OG EVO 4g on Sprint. Glad to have a lot cheaper bill now. LOL I did have a couple resource errors the first few hours after activation, but haven't had any since then.

My OG 4G was rooted and romed, since pretty much the day I got it. I'm looking forward to doing the same with my EVO V 4G too.

Mine is branded as a Sprint on the front, really are there any noticable differences? Mine is hardware rev. 0002, if that helps.

Having Sprint branded phones still available has nothing at all to do with your mistaken theory of supply and demand. How about something as simple as contractual obligations. With the better specs Sprint expected the phone to surpass the original Evo in sales and guaranteed supply by ordering so many units.They did the same thing with the iPhone, even if Sprint couldn't sell phone one they were under contract with Apple to purchase a minimum of115.5 billion dollars worth. It's the only way of insuring that you have adequate supply if a phone does take off in sales.And considering that they are solid state, have no moving parts where are all these people that would prefer an identical phone built yesterday rather than a year ago. Functionally both phones are identical except for silk screening. In reality if there was going to be any sort of quality issues it would be with the newer phones perhaps substituting lesser parts that are still functionally equivalent and wouldn't require FCC re-certification.

there have been so many post in this forum and others of people that would rather have a virgin branded phone then a sprint branded one.i find it hard to believe that you missed them all.maybe re read the op post.i could try to explain to you why but i know it would be a waste of my time.

you got me my 15 years of experience in the production/manufacturing field and i know nothing about how it works.

What he's saying though is the Sprint phones are guaranteed to work as they always have, going through mandatory FCC regulation, and the Virgin ones may not have had to go through FCC re-certification, making it possible that inferior parts were substituted. So theoretically, the Virgin ones can only be equal or worse. (But I bet equal)

i think you both misread what i posted.i am in no way shape or form saying that there is a difference in the phones.all i am saying is there are people out there that would rather have the newest one.

Yeah I noticed you mentioned you would rather have the newer Virgin ones earlier so I was just pointing out the validity OverByter's statement that newer doesn't always equal better

Thanks for all the replies. OverByter has a point in that phones made a year ago through a contract carrier should have less problems than phones produced now through a prepaid carrier. I just activated my new phone and it has no problems, thank god! If there is any problems, I'll be sure to post it. Thanks for all your help, this forum is the best Android forum.

I'm the opposite, I personally don't care what someone else thinks about which carrier I use. In fact, I will gladly state the fact that I'm a Virgin Mobile user and that I'm glad to have nearly all the features I had with Sprint. Oh, it gets better I really enjoy the look on people's faces when I tell them what my monthly bill is.

It's a great feeling to be saving almost $80 a month over 2 lines on Sprint. Still have to switch the wife over to either VM or Boost, she hasn't decided what phone she wants. LOL

Anyone who has the Virgin branded phone only has to swap out the back cover for the Sprint version which is blank and they too can have the "stealth" model.

Plus if your going to be rooting and tweaking your phone anyway, it wont (shouldn't) make a difference.

I had mine since it came out, it has the Sprint branding, but imo, it makes it look like a more expensive phone lol.

i woudl think of the sprint branding as a bonus o.O

I think it would be nicer having a phone that has a contract carrier's logo on it rather than a prepaid branding plastered to the back to make it look like it came from virgin but thats just my opinion

I had a Sprint branded one: nothing but random reboots. Had to send it back.

Got a VM branded one, not a problem now.

Nice thing though: VM told me send back just the front of the phone, so I got to keep the old sprint back cover that has no branding on it so my phone just says HTC on the front, and HTC on the back.

No carrier included ;p

Note: Random rebooting with Stock ROM, and random rebooting with MeanRom (EVO V port). It was bad. No random reboots now.

Does anybody have a silver speaker grill on the front of their phone? I have mine with a silver grill, I am just confirming because the plum models do have a silver grill as well.

Well my phone has no carrier branding whatsoever. I talked to some of the guys on the Evo 3D Forum and they said that some phone that were sold had the silver grill with no carrier logo.

No it's 4 gig total, a little over 1 gig available to the user. A friend has a plum model with the silver grill.
