    Evo 4G is done for!

    doesn't mean you won't receive anymore support, just means they are going to stop making them.

    As long as I get Free Wireless Tethering on my EVO, I am keeping it active. I have 10 year tenure and can upgrade every year, but unless I can get Free Wireless Tethering, I am NOT giving up this phone. Hopefully Hesse's big announment is WiMax2 with better penetration. Then will upgrade my phone, unless Sprint gets the SGS2. I use Tethering on my Xoom and 3DS Alot.

    Can you tell me how you get free wireless tethering? I can do wired tethering using pdanet, but i am not aware of a wireless tethering solution. The only wireless option I am aware of with the evo is the wifi hotspon option, which is not free.

    1. you have to be rooted. (do some research and reading before asking questions about what is root)

    2. then you can use many options to get FREE wifi app that are in the market... and a few mods over at xda.

    3. welcome to the forum

    I thought the switch was only to turn off the 3D on the camera??

    I've been hanging out for a while on AF -- My family plan is 'bout to run up on Verizon and we've decided to go w/Sprint. I've been debating between the 3d and 4g... Now w/the mention of the 4g's EOL and now w/the announcement of Revolutionary -- My decision is all but made. Now, I'm not a fan of the whole "3D" aspect-- but w/its hardware and root now achieved -- might be an offer to good to pass up...

    Any Idea's?

    Get a Sprint HTC EVO 3D. You will not regret it. I still wonder why people make their purchasing decisions based on the stigma of 3D. You can use the Sprint HTC EVO 3D without even making use of the 3D and still enjoy the benefits of the awesome hardware specifications.

    I absolutely love mine. Now that S-OFF has been achieved, wonderful things are in store for it.

    This mean evo wont get any updates at all?

    I think they will still support the Sprint HTC EVO 4G. You will see maintenance updates probably.

    My Sprint HTC Hero received maintenance updates long after it was discontinued. Sprint and HTC support their handsets quite well.

    most bugs have been addressed with the evo... so small fix updates .. will be seldom.

    and since it will not be getting any official android updates.. then they will not need to fix issues with future android for evo.

    but i am 100% sure that the dev community will support it.. for at least 1 more year.

    Yeah -- I think you're right... I'm not big into the "3D" scene, as I said. I've fallen asleep in every 3D movie I've seen and most 3D stuff gives me head aches... But like you said -- You don't have to use the 3D feature. Thanks again.

    It has 1 GB of RAM. It has 4 GB of internal memory, but much of that is used by the operating system.

    It comes with an 8 GB class 4 microSD card, so you will have plenty of space for media and so forth. It is a great handset.

    That's hard to say. Sprint stopped giving out updates to the Samsung Moment shortly after it's release but that wasn't a popular phone like the Evo 4G is. But Sprint may not give us more updates due to them wanting us to upgrade more quickly too so...we'll have to say.

    I'd have to say that I'm going to be optimistic and say they will continue to give out updates or the users who still have Evos will make an uproar causing them to release more updates such as new Android versions. I can say that Sprint will let out updates that will fix hardware/firmware issues if they arise.

    Haha. The Sprint Samsung Moment was released in November of 2009 and got the Android 2.1 update in May of 2010 and might have had a maintenance update or two in between that time. They did support it for a while, but to a lesser extent than the Sprint HTC Hero. I would agree it is because it was not as popular of a handset compared to the Sprint HTC Hero. :D

    The bottom line is that I think Sprint and HTC are being a bit more proactive with their new handsets. They seem to be supporting them a bit longer now, and that is especially true with the popular ones. ;)
