    4g

    As of now, only on Sprint.

    Haven't seen anything to indicate that there will be a SIM card slot.

    Yes it is a Sprint exclusive and there is no GSM/UTMS variant.

    The closest to it would be the HD2.

    I really don't know what you're getting at or talking about.

    There is ONE EVO 4G and it is coming to Sprint, and that is it.

    This should answer your question 100%

    What the person was referring to was that the nextel phones use sim cards, but they are the only part of sprint that use sim cards. phones on the regular sprint network dont use sim cards and since the Evo is a sprint phone it wont use sim cards (but that does notmean there wont be one in the future or another phone like it comming out on other phone companies rosters of phones

    If you want a GSM version, just wait a bit. HTC seems to release new phones and revisions every few months and no doubt you can get a Desire or some other Sense-enabled, Nexus-inspired HTC phone with a GSM radio and a SIM slot. The Evo is a Sprint exclusive meant for Sprint's EVDO/Wimax network.

    Nextel will never get the EVO. You might as well switch over to Sprint.

    I thought you were outside the US or something. If you are in the States then check Sprint coverage. Nextel doesn't use a GSM SIM card and has a pathetic data network anyway. It shouldn't really be considered for smart phone use.

    If you have Sprint coverage in your area you can also stand to save a good deal of money over AT&T and a few bucks over T-Mobile unless you bring your own phone (in which case T-Mo is cheaper).

    Sprint owns Nextel, but they're about different as verizon is to ATT. You cannot use a Sprint on the Nextel network and vice versa. No other carriers will EVER get the Evo as that is a Sprint exclusive specially built. They might come out with variations for other networks in the future but will not have the exact same model.
