Hello and hi. Long time lurker, first time poster. My fiance and I recently (this past Feb) made the switch from dumb to smartphones. We both got the Evo V for about $150 each. Wow, loved that phone. I had an iphone many a year ago, but didn't like the big ATT bill that went along with it, so I downgraded. After still paying over $100 bones a month for our dumbphones, we switched to VM, my first Android experience. WTF are people thinking using iDevices?!? I'm guessing they haven't experienced Android. So, I had rooted, S-off'ed and rommed my Evo V. Angrybeans was the best ROM I had found. Unfortunately, as a first time father celebrating my first fathers day, I got a little excited about taking my daughter into the pool and .... you can guess. The Evo V does NOT like water. So I tried to switch my account to my bro's old LG Optimus V and I think I bricked it trying to get it back to stock. I also have his old Moto Triumph, but it won't even charge up. So, after three days without a phone, I bought the S3. Here are some questions (please remember that I'm newish to the smartphone world, and especially 4g): Does 4g work while indoors? Is there a trick to improving the data connection (i really can't even browse the web while indoors on 3g)? Is this the same s3 phone/service I'd get by walking into a sprint store and getting one on contract (besides the bloatware, of course)? Is it normal that i always have one or two bars in the upper right? Ive noticed that once or twice the bars (and the wifi signal) will be blue, but they are typically grey. Does that mean something? Thanks everyone for your help. I live in Lawrence, KS, and the VM coverage map shows that I'm in the heart of LTE service and we're on the "LTE markets launched" list. So far, I really like this device and I know it will have great dev support, but if it's not giong to even allow me to browse the web while not on wifi, I might as well take it back and get a phone that's half it's price. Ideas? Advice?
