Don't worry about not using an AOSP rom, believe me, you'll forget about AOSP roms soon enough. Sense 3.0 is something

The funny part is when I activated last night and then went to sign into Gmail, I know I unchecked for it to download my apps from the server, and it downloaded them all anyways, I stopped half of them in the process. LOL I just now went to privacy and unchecked it again, LOL, I hope I don't have any issues with GV, when I downloaded it and set it up, it asked me something I never noticed before something about integrating Sprint and GV together, hope I don't have the issues like those with there text when receiving them on both apps, LOL While at work later on today I will start setting it up, I have both Gmail accounts added to the exchange app, but I was hoping to see both accounts at the same when you click on the icon, but only shows one, shows both if you click on the accounts tab, maybe I download K9 to see if that is better, would prefer to see all accounts set up and with how many emails in each.

I can tell you boys when you receive your new toy, you will be impressed. you can delete most of the Sprint Bloatware from the application settings. you have a built in task manger, pretty neat, did I tell you the Sense 3.0 is sweet, lol 3D pics are pretty amazing, transition between screens are smooth and neat, and you can keep on scrolling. So far I wish the speaker could be a little louder, Blue tooth works great so far, no lag on calls like we had with the Hero before I rooted.

Yep, Sense 3.0 is pretty nice Have you set up your HTC Hub account yet? There are a few things that are worth downloading

No I have not, I have been really busy with work and the HOA, and I have family coming in town tomorrow, but I will give it a look today while at work, another thing I want to check is live wallpaper, have not checked that out for kicks and grins. I assume you have to sign up for the HTC Hub ??

Yep, set up your account. You can also use it as a phone finder if your phone gets lost or stolen.

The weather live wallpaper is pretty sweet

Will check it out, is it stock in our phone or do I need to download it, and love the option of the phone finder, as I did notice yesterday glancing through the phone they I saw something about a phone finder and said to myself, how the heck do you use this, now I know, LOL

I am getting a little tired of signing up for a new account for every service. That being said, HTC Hub seems worth it for the smartphone finder service.

I think it can back up things on your handset too. I saw that Sprint had made most of the bloatware uninstallable which is really admirable of them and something that every carrier should strive for.

Had to create a new account, would not use my HTC login info I had, checked all the add ons, also set the weather live wallpaper, pretty neat. and activated phone finder before I go home. Now assume you have to login to HTC hub from the PC to use the phone finder ??

Yes, you login from the HTC Hub website I believe. Then you can track it and there is probably an option to wipe it too.

That reason alone, makes it worth signing up. Of course, there are good third party apps that offer this for free as well.

I use Lookout but it's always nice to have a backup All this important info on the phones, I believe these things are important if the phone gets lost or stolen

I think you can find it here: http://www.htcsense.com/ .

Just select your country and off you go. It should be in there somewhere.

I would only leave it on when you need it. The 4G connectivity uses more power than 3G or Wi-Fi.

That being said, if you have a good 4G signal where you are, do a comparison. Maybe you will be surprised.

When I'm at home, I have a solid 4G signal so when I'm there, I leave it on all the time. I don't see a big battery decrease by leaving it on. Plus, it definitely lets me know when I'm scanning for 4G and that's where I see a big battery drain

As far as Lookout is concerned, I have the premium version so you can lock down the phone or wipe the phone from your pc or another phone

As I can see you can do the same from the HUB kool, thanks again, saves me time researching this with this weeks crazy schedule, I should really have posted this in the EVO section, but this way the Hero jumpers may learn a few things before they switch over, again did I tell you how much I love sense 3.0, OOPPSS yes I did I am waiting on the Cat to chime in, I bet he is line line first thing this morning to get his phone

Now all they need is a "clapper" app, so that I can clap on and clap off my handset at night before I go to bed. HTC, I just gave you a free idea.

Just kidding. My handset stays on all the time unless I am rebooting.

Great! Now HTC can really screw with its customers and make all of their handsets ring in unison.

That reminds me of the end of movie, The Lawnmower Man. The future is here now!

I mean, I guess you would have to turn it on for that to happen, but it seems like they could if they wanted to. Not that I am the type that wears a tinfoil hat, but with all the location data collection news we have been hearing lately, I think it is a legitimate question.

I just downloaded lookout also, and I was able to disable all and simply leave the locator on, and you can enable the rest when you want, kool.

I just downloaded lookout also, and I was able to disable all and simply leave the locator on, and you can enable the rest when you want, kool.
Indeed. Plus, the other thing to think about is when you are not on a Sense UI ROM, the locator service probably does not work.

A third party solution may be the best idea. I will definitely be looking into it.

I knew you would peek in, so what do you think so far, how long did you have to wait at the Store

Its pretty cool - Sense is going to take some getting used to.
I really don't care for it. But will play along for now.
LP is there if I can't take it! HAHA

Smooth Fast as hell - 3d works well - does get my stomach going a bit.....But - i will get used to it.

Store - they had 6 staff on hand....I walked in at 5 after 8 - one guy was there before me. 9 pre-orders - they got 40 phones.
Talked to the Rep and the manager about root. they are booth Keeping track of XDA - waiting. The Store advocate hasn't done any OTA's because he was afraid he wouldn't be abe to root! LMAO!

I can not help but be a little envious of you guys! Though I will be joining your crowd soon enough.

Probably by next month I too will have a Sprint HTC EVO 3D. I hope you guys enjoy yours!

I also wish we had the option to use 3 screens, I also am using Multicon on one page with all the shortcuts, saves me room and time, you figured they would look at other launchers and learn from there options.

Sounds like uninstalling bloatware for unrooted phones is here to stay with Sprint. Glad I'm a Sprint customer for that reason alone

It is true. They still have not blocked the tethering apps on the Android Market.

I have been really satisfied with Sprint. I am glad that I made the switch to them in early 2010.

I just upgraded to the EVO 3D, I still miss my hero though, it was great while being rooted! I decided not to trade my phone when I got my EVO, so, I'm keeping it! I can't wait to get my EVO 3D rooted as well!

It looks like the Sprint HTC EVO 3D has already been rooted. This is even before HTC officially unlocked the encrypted bootloader.

Check this out: HTC EVO 3D Gets Root Courtesy of Team Win .

It looks like I might have missed the boat on getting my upgrade back. Apparently, Sprint is not offering it anymore after July 1st, which was yesterday.

I will probably still give them a call come this Tuesday to see if I can get it back, along with an upgrade for my wife's line. I think I can get a $70.00 customer loyalty credit for renewing the contract early too and that would bring the cost of the Sprint HTC EVO 3D down to $129.99.

Why wait, call them up now and they won't ship it until Tuesday anyways, this phone is worth every Penny IMO
