    They've listed it as "Out of Stock" for over a week now. I'm surprised they're still selling the Triumph, that phone is even older and not as good specs wise but they're selling it the same price as the Evo V. SMH

    Evo v 4g and the optimus slider is marked as end of life at retail store's employee sheet for virgin mobile. Probably because they were hand downs from Sprint, unlike the triumph.

    My thought is that the Evo V is EOL because they are bringing in the Galaxy Victory, which has similar specs and LTE. The Triumph, which is a similar age to the Evo V, is not a "4G" phone so it doesn't directly compete with the Victory.

    I saw a TV commercial today for VM talking about a Galaxy phone and 4G LTE, how convenient they didn't mention the word VICTORY. Also didn't metion a price.

    Dumb Question. If these are in fact not far from being "Gone", What happens if you seek to get a warranty fulfilled? Or would they send you a different phone that's "similar"?

    They likely have refurb Evo Vs to send out for those who need warranty replacements. Then they fix the broken phones sent in to replenish their stock.

    Wow, that's interesting, cause the Evo V is probably the best phone they've got, IMHO

    In the Dallas area there are no EVO V's available in Radio Shack, Sprint, Best Buy, Wal-Mart or Target stores anywhere. The RS district manager said there have been none available in his tri-state area even before the sale. Several stores have been shown as having them on the RS website but when called they said they did not have any and haven't had any. One store manager said he had one returned defective phone. I called every RS, BB, Target and Wal-Mart within 30 miles (and there are a bunch in the Dallas area). One Target had one which I had them hold and I picked it up. They also price matched the $99.99 RS ad. I was going to buy a backup at that price but only found that one by sheer luck.

    The S2 on the other hand is readily available but at $279.

    Not to mention if im right right, Virgin mobile has more smart phone customers than boost. Well since VM failed i might buy the new HTC One on my parents tmobile plan.

    I'm sticking with WiMAX since sprint LTE sucks at the moment with very spotty cities. I would be embarrassed to work at a sprint store and sell LTE phones when LTE isn't even available in the area

    Heck they've been selling the LTEVO for a year now and the vast majority of users still don't get LTE.

    Umm lte is here in Chicago including all the major ones NY LA Tx Baltimore San Fran including a ton of small towns so just because U or tom and harry don't have in IN YOUR AREA don't mean the rest of us sprint users don't got lte. Hell I had lte in my house since October. They are selling them because nv is coming bro lol.

    Umm lte isn't even in 100 markets yet including many major ones so just because U are one of the fraction of Sprint users that have lte IN YOUR AREA don't mean the rest of us sprint users got lte. Hell I live in a medium-sized college town and can't even get 0.3 mbps on campus lol.

    The new area I'm moving too has LTE coverage for miles, so I can't wait for a LTE phone that is decent to come to VM. Though the area also has wimax coverage, so that KINDA makes me want to stay with the evo v since I wouldn't have to buy a new phone.

    Evo V has been on its way out since January-ish. Prices just plummeted at Radioshack from $250 to $150 overnight. That's usually a sign that the phone is heading out. It's the same thing with the Evo Design for Boost.
     
  23. I been trying to get a HTC Evo V 4G for the last 2 1/2 months, but they've been pretty hard to find at Radio Shack, Best Buy, at a Virgin Mobile store, etcetera... I believe that the HTC Evo V 4G is being discontinued. :( I still want the Evo V, but since my Galaxy Reverb is getting Jelly Bean update, I'll pass on the Evo V, and keep the Reverb.

    Does Samsung generally update their phones more than HTC?
