    Yeah. My sister has a Verizon Motorola Droid X and she seems to be content with it. Indeed, it is rootable and you can flash custom ROMs. I believe the only thing that cannot be changed is the kernel. I have messed around with it and it is a nice handset. The Android 2.3 updates makes it snappier too.

    I am hoping that HTC follows through with its promise regarding the bootloader on the Sprint HTC EVO 3D. I may just wait until that promise has been fulfilled.

    It will happen -
    Already have a leaked Phone - with complete system dump on xda.....
    Possible day 1 root......

    Will root day 1 if its available.......on my new evo3d.....

    Yeah, I have faith that HTC will follow through. It is not like they are taking forever to change their bootloader policy like Motorola is. :)

    My Sprint HTC Hero will probably go to my wife since she wants to get into the Android scene. It will also keep me around this subforum. ;)

    Wait... I thought it was for users who were being BANNED, not promoted :eek::eek::(:(:mad:

    Lol, don't worry, I've got their back! :p

    [shameless plug] If you decide she should have an Epic or Evo, let me know as I'm selling both! [/shameless plug]

    How much would you be asking for each handset? My wife may want something a bit more modern than the Sprint HTC Hero.

    If you want, you can Private Message me your asking prices on both handsets. Thank you, Kelmar.

    I have read at a few other forums that if you call up Sprint and ask to upgrade all of your lines, some representatives will let you even if you lost your upgrade due to their Sprint Premier shuffling. I might try this and see if I can get my wife a Sprint HTC EVO 3D as well.

    I believe you would get it at the upgrade price of $200.00. That would be sweet.

    I believe that to be true, because when I went to sign up my name for the 3D they said even though my wife's line was not due they could upgrade her also if I wanted. ;)

    If I can get away with that, you may be seeing me in the Sprint HTC EVO 3D subforum sooner than you think. We shall see though. ;)

    I showed my wife a bunch of different Android smartphones offered by Sprint today and asked her which one interested her. She said she liked the Sprint HTC EVO 4G. Maybe I can convince her getting the new hotness, Sprint HTC EVO 3D, will be a better choice. Especially if she wants to future proof her handset. :D

    Hey so i flashed the ROM and i gotta say thank you for the tip! This ROM is extremely fast compared to my Fresh hero 2.40 ROM, But my only problem is I don't have any contacts /: I tried restoring them with HTC sync but the option for that in the notification bar does not show up so any help would be very very much appreciated.

    You needed to make sure your contacts were stored on Gmail rather than the phone, you can restore your old Rom, save your contact list as a CSV file, then save it on your SD card, then restore your new rom, and restore your contacts, but keep in mind it is much better to save all your phone contacts to Gmail.

    Glad I saw this post over at the EVO 3D section, I decided to call Sprint and told them I am a Premier customer and can I order my EVO 3d now, and they said yes, they also said I may get a headache and nausea from the screen at the beginning, LOL so it is ordered and on its way, should have it on Thursday, Yah baby, my review will follow shortly after.

    Release date: 6/24 nationwide; 6/21 for SP members.

    Are they sending it to your house? I was under the impression I had to go to the Sprint store and preorder it there as well as pick it up there.

    I am waiting to see what the prices of the Sprint HTC EVO 4G and Sprint HTC EVO Shift 4G will be lowered to before I get my Sprint HTC EVO 3D. My wife is interested in those two handsets as potential replacements for her Sprint Palm Pre.

    LBP - They will send it wherever you want.

    I was WAY tempted to do this.....But there is no overnight shipping to Hawaii....so It would have arrived on thursday anyway....Figured my store is opening at 8 am so I can go get it on my way to work and have a nice productive day!

    I hope you enjoy it, man. I can tell that you are really excited for it and that is cool. :)

    So, what will you do with your Sprint HTC Hero after it is officially retired? I think I will continue to use mine as a personal media player, and I will, of course, still continue to mess with custom ROMs on it. I want to see if it will get Ice Cream Sandwich. Haha. :D

    You lucky son of a gun! Congratulations! :D

    I probably will not have a Sprint HTC EVO 3D for another few weeks. Though it might be sooner as stranger things have happened. ;)
