    When I bought my Evo on launch day at the Sprint store, the associate suggested that I should buy a car charger as well as an extra charger to keep at work because as she stated "We are already having battery issues with the Evo and I suggest that you charge it periodically throughout the day so you are not without a phone." Anyone else have a similar experience? I thought that was crazy! Great way to sell a phone, tell the person buying it that it is already having problems. I ignored it. Oh and she also told me that the hotspot feature was $39.99 a month!

    Yep, I got my car charge just in case, but my battery is fine.

    agree. upsale.

    its a great ideas to always have a power source nearby so why not.. the phone does not have issues.. more and more non smart phone users are jumping on board and they are used to the flip phones that can last for days...when they see these phones dont last long they complain. the sprint rep was trying to be helpful.. :D

    It seems that any smartphone has to be near a charger.

    Thankfully my last phone (Pre) used MicroUSB as well so I already had a car charger and second wall charger to keep at work.

    or you can buy 2 spare hero batts and a charger for 12$ and never be without power. Ever.
