    after the Gingerbread update with the Evo 4G I would say he is in line guessing June, after all Gingerbread was out 6 months or so when the 4G finally got the update

    True but that was the 4g and at that time the 4g wasn't exactly sprints flag ship phone anymore now a days the 3vo is the first of It's kind and def the 4g EVO predecessor..and to top it off sprints not getting the nexus so if Sprint were to wait that long I'd say dumb move on their part and a lot of unhappy 3vo customers and id be one of them that's for sure!!

    It's the same exact situation. Around June the next Evo will be coming out most likely and the 3vo will be just as the 4G was at that time the previous year.

    I'm just waiting to get the folders from ICS, the device itself doesn't really entice me to switch from my 3D, except for the larger screen.

    Yeah the folders are really cool looking in ICS.

    You don't use Folder Organizer? I don't think I could get by without it.

    I thought for a long time I could not either...but I haven't had a file manager installed on my 3V0 for more than maybe 15 minutes throughout its life. Much easier to manage files from my computer and even then I rarely use it.

    I heard the Ice cream sandwich was coming to EVO 3D. Any word on when? I don't want to root this phone as it has been great and fast.

    There is a whole thread on it, like 4 posts down...

    I don't use it to manage anything. Custom icons for folders, custom border for folder view, custom background, user controlled organization, no size limit for amount of apps per folder. Also, custom widget allowing more than 4 apps per row on desktop, including Folder Organizer folders.

    I have some of my folders set up alphabetically, and some are organized by most used.

    It's irreplaceable.

    Perhaps you are thinking of Astro?

    Yes I was thinking of Astro & File Manager. My apologies.

    It's all good. Get Folder Organizer--easily my most used app, and the closest app that relates to it is Circle Launcher, and Folder Organizer blows it out of the water in every possible way.

    dont forget that gingerbread was the 2nd major update for the evo 4g, it also got froyo, so you cant base this first major version update to the evo 4g getting gingerbread.

    I use an iPhone style folder widget which looks and works fine. I put my games in it. But the folder in ICS looks cooler.

    Is anyone else wondering what the hold up with ics is or is it just me?

    I'd imagine it's not out due to the following reasons:

    1) We don't know the staff size or how many units are being updated by the same staff. HTC has a lot of devices.

    2) It really does take a long time to build the OS to work with the phone. Check out the rooting section and the ICS ROMs that are being developed. Those ROMs are still in alpha phase and are not ready for daily use (unless you want to give up some features on the phone like wimax and 3D). Plus HTC has to slap Sense onto it.

    3) There has to be a bug fixing phase where HTC and Sprint do testing. If Sprint rejects the build due to bugs, HTC needs to fix them, test the device again, submit the build to Sprint. If Sprint rejects the build again, the process repeats. Each cycle of this could be 2 weeks, could be a month, could be a few days...it all depends on the bugs and how busy the HTC dev team and Sprint testing team are.

    HTC / Sprint will get the update to us as soon as they can, with as few bugs as they can. It would be a disaster to release a buggy OS update.

    Chill people it will come in time.......the galaxy nexus and the nexus s are the only phones with the official ics OS.

    You could go with the assumption that it will be released on June 28th (totally random date) - that way, when it gets released earlier, you will be pleasantly surprised - and you don't have to be disappointed every day! :)

    Okay, please forgive me and allow me to possibly make a dummy of myself. I love my 3vo, but I'm new to smartphones (as of about two months ago) but even though I've searched around a bit, I still don't understand much about the update.

    I guess, in newbie terms, what can I expect that I'll be impressed with? Is this something I should be excited about too? (I like to pretend to my wife that I know this thing inside and out as we both have 3vo's, hehe...) Will there be noticeable changes for someone that isn't super "tech" but still in love with his phone?

    Or will ICS be impressive mostly to those who love intricacies and little nuances about the way the phone operates? I ask because I still can't figure out if this update will change the "look" more, the feel of the phone, the logistics (speed, etc) or what have you (or a combo of everything).

    I guess I just want to be invited to the party and act like I belong. :)

    Thanks folks...

    It all depends on how much HTC changes it, but you should notice big changes once ICS gets here. For example:

    When you hold the home key for your recent apps, it'll show a preview pane of each of them. If you want to shut down one of those apps, you just swipe it off the screen.

    Widget placement is changed. Instead of holding a homescreen location and selecting widget, you would go to your app tray, tap the widget tab, and get a preview of all your installed widgets. You find a widget you want, and you can drop it on your homescreen.

    ICS will be hardware accelerated, so it'll feel smoother than your phone is now.

    You should also be able to freeze bloatware without root. As long as HTC/Sprint doesn't disable that feature.

    Well believe it or not that's your choice but a friend of mine is a sprint rep and he currently has a work phone aka EVO 3d which sprint has released there version of ics on.. now the only issue there currently having is it crashes after about 3minutes of running but the weird thing is about every 15 minutes he was forced to do update after update to fix these crash issues!! So unfortunately clearly there still having complications with it :( :( :( so who knows when US 3vo owners will get our ice cream sandwich :( :( :( :(
