Hi guys and gals, I have been on Sprint for awhile (couple of contracts). I still haven't had a smartphone yet. I have been reading up on all the smartphones for Sprint since the Hero and the Moment came out. I currently have an old LG Lotus. I have the 450 minute everything data plan which is a waste for this phone because it only has mobile web anyways and you can't do much of anything with it. I already pre-ordered the EVO LTE but I am reconsidering. I am worried about the rollout of LTE in the NYC area (suburbs of NYC) and how long it is actually going to take to get it up and running. I have viewed S4GRU to try to keep up with updates on the rollout. Sprint can't tell me when it will happen. I never had a smartphone so I don't know how it is viewing the real web on 3G. I obviously know you could use WiFi until LTE is available to get web access. The reason why I am reconsidering is because Virgin Mobile announced they will be getting the EVO V 4G which is essentially the EVO 3D from Sprint just running ICS and Sense 3.6. It would cost $55 a month plus $5/month insurance for a total of $60/month. I know it will only use 4G WiMax, which will be obsolete at some point and is not being expanded. I checked coverage maps in my area on sprint.com and clear.com and Wimax is spotty in my area. So who knows how my data speeds will be anyways even with 4G. Also Virgin has a cap of 2.5gb of data monthly until it is throttled. I would be spending more upfront for the phone ($300) but my monthly bill would be around $60/month. The 3D feature of the phone doesn't really appeal to me and I probably won't use it all that much. It would take about 3 months to be equal with the amount of money I would spend on Sprint due to the upfront cost of the phone. Obviously the EVO LTE hardware-wise (and even software-wise due to the newer version of sense) will be better than the EVO V 4G (3D) in pretty much every aspect. It's bigger, it's thinner, it's faster, it has a better camera, etc. I like this phone a lot better but the thing that concerns me is the data speeds on 3G. I would also not have to worry about a monthly cap on data like Virgin (unless Sprint does throttle its data and I am not aware). Now, if I stay with Sprint, I will be buying the EVO LTE for $150 but then spending around $100/month for the 450 everything data plan plus $10 fee and TEP and fees. Is viewing the web and youtube and stuff bearable on 3G? So do I save $40/month and go to Virgin and possibly get some good data speeds with WiMax 4G and get an older phone with inferior hardware to the EVO LTE and have capped data and possibly still have to use 3G some/a lot of the time (In the 3 months, that it takes to come out about equal price-wise I could then possibly move back to Sprint and LTE might be up and running and the Galaxy S3 might be out my then) OR Do I stay with Sprint and sign another 2 year contract and pay an extra $40/month and get a way better phone but have to worry about when LTE is coming to my area and deal with 3G speeds until then and get unlimited data Obviously either phone is going to seem awesome compared to a LG Lotus so I don't know. I guess answering the question on how viewing webpages and videos on 3G with a smartphone, especially the caliber of the EVO LTE's fast processor and all will help me decide. Did anyone have the Galaxy Nexus on Sprint and how was viewing the web on that phone? As you could tell I am really stressed about this, so any help would be really appreciated. I have to decide by mid-week before the phone is released because I need a new phone and I will not pay this much monthly for this phone anymore. I am sorry for the book I posted. If you read through all this, you deserve to have a beer or something. Thank you all for understanding. Mods please move if you feel there is a better spot for this thread. Sorry if it is in the wrong spot but it is regarding the EVO LTE and since I already pre-ordered I figured I would post in this forum. There was a thread between the EVO LTE and the EVO 3D but I didn't want to hijack it because there is more to it than that.
