Hi. I'm new here and switching over from AT&T to Sprint. The initial reason for switching was to save some money. I have the "Simply Everything" plan and the "Mobile Broadband Connect 3G/4G plan. Switching to Sprint saves me about $50.00 per month over the same AT&T plans that I had with the iPhone and their DataConnect plan. I heard about the new EVO, but seeing all the other phones that tried to copy the iPhone, I did not see any that where actually as good as the iPhone, so I assumed the EVO would be the same type of "wanna be" iPhone. Anyway, after seeing the EVO, I realized that it is actually among the first phones that are better than the iPhone, and even seem that they are going to be better than the new iPhone coming out this month. The iPhone is a great concept, but Apple products are to proprietary. They have great products, but it seems to me that they don't wanna be compatible with the rest of the world. They have always been that way as far back as I can remember. They have too much control over things, and IMO come off like a pretty snobbish company. I don't wanna have to hook my cell phone up to a computer just to restore/activate/update it. They won't even let AT&T put the AT&T logo on the iPhone or display it on the iPhone anywhere in the software. Maybe that's why no one else carries the iPhone. I'm just guessing though (and ranting a little I guess), but the iPhone is a great phone. So far I think the EVO (as well as some of the other new phones that are coming out) is (are) better than the iPhone, and I think it's about time that Apple starts getting a run for their money. The EVO is an amazing phone so far, and I LOVE the bigger screen. Now that I'm in my 50's I find it very hard to read small things, and I have no trouble reading anything on this EVO. It's loaded with great features, and for $200.00, I can't make any sense out of some of these complaints I am reading on the forums. It was not very long ago at all to pay $300.00 for a freekin "Motorola Razor" at the discounted price. It is unbelievable how far this technology has come just in the past few years, and how affordable it is compared to what it was. I have the slight light leak issue, and sprint is going to replace my phone as soon as they get one in, but I don't think it's as big an issue as people are making it out to be. I looked at the screens on both of my iPhones, and they both push in and out slightly at the edges just like the screen on my EVO does. I would be willing to bet that if the lit part of the screen was as close to the edge on the iPhone as it is on the EVO, the iPhone would also have light leaking as well. The screen never fell off either of my iPhones over the past couple years, so I'm pretty sure it won't fall off my EVO. If it does, I have insurance on the EVO (you cannot get insurance on the iPhone). I think Sprint's 3G is faster than AT&T's 3G both on my phones and my laptop, and so far the signal has been very comparable with AT&T. So, it's nice to meet you all, and so far both Sprint and the EVO are going well for me. Piece.
