    Hi,

    Here is a flier from Sprint about the EVO.
    For those looking for off contract pricing for BB or RS so that they will match the EVO $449 pricing!!!

    from the add...
    it reads like the $10 will cover the Hotspot function!!
    :confused:

    but if you look at the 2nd page.. it reads like it is included in the $10.. that is missleading

    I called Sprint when I got my credit pre approved and asked about the tethering charges and I was told the $10 covers it. Will see I guess.

    You are right. Seems to be very misleading. This leads me to believe someone jacked up or it's intentionally misleading. Also the facts about other phones are off.

    If anybody ever wants to question the iPhone's dominance, then ask yourself why Sprint is so hell bent on comparing the Evo to a year old device lol.

    While I agree that Sprint offers a good value, I really hate when they equate the 450 minute plan with the unlimited voice plans on the other carriers. On one hand I understand that it is worth more than just 450 minutes since all cell phones are free to call but it's still not an apples-to-apples comparison.

    There is a lot misleading. First, they compare unlimited talk on T-Mobile to 450 minutes of talk and mobile-to-mobile. It's not the same thing for everyone.

    Then they make it look like the $10 covers hot spot stuff on page two (although my guess is that the hot spot stuff is going to come WAY down in price or even disapper a la Verizon's Pre).

    Then they also make it look like 4G is going to be sweet when I get this sick feeling that it is going to be major suckage (already many reports of 4G being spotty outside and only have ~60% pentration indoors).

    Still getting it though! Ive done enough research to not be misled, but the soccer moms and gadget dads out there probably will be.

    well it also says the HD2 has an 8MP camera when it only has 5MP. They're helping the competition....

    There is no definitive info on the iPhone 4G to compare yet, only speculation. The fact is that they are comparing the EVO to the most current iPhone that is on the market right now.

    i really doubt this is from sprint at all.
    just from the things other people noticed, plus when i first read it without reading this thread i noticed most of the things people said here.

    somebody made this lol

    i think the first page is 100% made up vs the 2nd which are legit. look at the picture for the iphone... someone cliped it from something else and the hole eris as incred thing.

    I think I found a typo unless someone can explain this:
    "Our voice network reaches 1.4 million more Americans, and we outperform AT&T in blocked calls and signal strength."

    Do they mean dropped calls? Or can Sprint block calls from getting through better? lol

    I was wondering about that too. Doesn't really make sense.

    where did you get this flier from? source?? the fine print at the end of the flier raises an eyebrow for me.. if you ever want to see ifi anything is legit, read that small legal fine print...

    It's either a fake or a very sloppy attempt at a marketing flier. Lots of obvious grammatical/spelling errors.....

    These things usually go through multiple hands before getting approved and sent out; this was probably an early unrevised copy.

    I had to sign up for this forum, just so I could respond to this. It's not from Sprint... at least not directly. The domain the email is from is delivery.net and appears to be owned by a marketing company. Another reason why Sprint sucks at business. They need to quit wasting money on that crap.
