When do you guys think we can actually get our hands on this awesome phone?
If we get lucky late May! But my thought's are June 7 or 10....Sprint has this thing with Thursday's and Sunday's!
Yep, sometime close to the Evo anniversary.
you all are missing the most important question...
when will I get it??
Early June. That's when I'm due for an upgrade!
you will get it June 30th....
everyone else will get it June 1st........ i'm feelin it! when the LTEVO was announced a few days ago sprint started advertising for MUCH lower deals on phones for the next 57 days... well 57 days after press release is may 31st and the next day is June 1st... it can't be coincidental right?
I need two things - my last annual upgrade honored and for them to take my $150 upgrade credit on May 7. I have to go check my upgrade status, honestly, I have been afraid to...
Anyway, I offered WifelyMon EL TEvo - after shaking her head, she told me to enjoy my new phone and to continue keeping my meat hooks off of her Shift.
I was wondering about this also. Will they allow us June people to pre-order in May.
Yes. They let anyone pre-order, regardless of their upgrade status or when they are eligible for discounts. They could probably care less as long as they make the sale. (though in most cases they may look up your info to inform you what you will likely have to pay so things don't get screwy for either party).
Upgrade status and discounts are determined and applied on the date of sale as opposed to the date of pre-order. Also, so no one else asks this, your next upgrade will be set from the date of final sale and not from the pre-order day - there are no shortcuts.
Pre-orders start on May 7. The phone will probably release in the first weeks of June I'd imagine, depending on their summer road map. They aren't going to leave the bulk of their sales out in the cold (Evo 4G upgrades), especially since their long term future may depend on our loyalty. Even if they decide to release it before June, Sprint can re-write the rules and extend grace to early adopter Evo 4G users that want to upgrade. So if you are set for June and the phone comes out at the end of May, they can decide to bend their own rules if they choose.
Sprint is usually decent about this stuff, and they treat customers pretty well, so no worries mate.
Add to what PyroSporker said, in addition to that you can upgrade now if you wanted to any phone. Sprint tactics are (which makes sense) they will allow to upgrade 3 months in advance prior to your contract expiring (keeping you from leaving) I.e. Sept 9th, you can start your from June 9th - Sept 9th! Iv'e been doing since 2004!
I am going with June 3rd, which is the first sunday in june being that the og evo also came out on the first sunday in june a couple of years ago.
OG EVO came out on Friday.
? That first, second, third Friday of the month!?
The corresponding order of the first of June 2010 4th, then 11th and 18th
Yes, first Friday of the month.....June 4th.
Ok! Do you feel it will come out the first Friday of this June!? I talk to a Sprint rep (take with a .5 grain of salt) and he said he something like the 22nd of June!? My experience with rep, they are clueless! A female rep told me I should work for Sprint, because I know more than them!
P.S....She made me feel good!
I just called Sprint and was asking about the Galaxy Nexus, he told me the evo lte is coming out before the Galaxy Nexus and will be released sometime in May. He was pretty confident about it being May, not June. I am guessing it will be released 2 weeks after pre order, so maybe the 21st or 22nd of May.
they sound confident because its their job to sound confident about whatever they tell you... they speak out there ass and have NO clue, they get their info from fan sites like this half the time so i highly doubt it'll come out that quick, especially before the nexus.
he probably knew the pre-order date was may 7th and was just going off that.
LOL...I'm pretty confident, those reps should be fired from Sprint!
hahahaha...They obviously weren't doing good research on their own products.
I don't even know what the hell I was thinking when I typed that. Yes it came out on the 4TH so I say the first friday in june which is the 1st.
My question is when will they let us know when the release date is?
It'll likely be announced the day the 1st pre-orders can be made, which is May 7.
For the Evo 3D, BestBuy started taking "secret" preorders around May 3rd without a release date in sight.
Sprint started officially taking preorders late May, May 21st, and still with no release date announcement.
Finally, on June 6, 2011, Sprint officially announced that the HTC Evo 3D would be available on June 24, 2011.
The fact that we already know the preorder date at the announcement of the LTEvo is already different than last year. So in other words, it's hard to predict from prior launches
Rumored release date...
Rumor: HTC EVO 4G LTE making its way to Sprint on May 18th | PhoneDog
Rumor: Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE to be released May 18th | Android and Me
Android and Me reporting the May 18 release rumor may have legs.
