I just sold my Evo 3D, too. If I'd have known this, I would have held onto it and flashed it over to VM

They wouldn't flash it even if you did hold on to it. You would have to buy vms version.

well i won't get my hopes up yet because i don't think anyone confirmed the one v yet. then i hear about the optimus elite now the evo either people likes to make up stuff getting people hopes up or they're telling the truth about all, then vm needs to start speaking the **** up about shit like this get us ready for new stuff because i think about leaving vm alot but people bring up new shit like this and i change my mine. but hopefully its true.

I have to agree with everyone else, somethings can be too good to be true lol. Question is, what kind of price tag are they slapping on that thing.

Hey folks,
I merged 3 different threads into this one here, sorry if stuff is a bit choppy, but we don't really need that many different threads about the same thing.

It does look interesting though...

This phone looks like a beast to grab than the HTC One V. The first dual-core (1.2Ghz) phone in the VM line if we grab it. Most importantly, if the phone comes with 4G as well, I am moving from my Triumph to this bad boy. Price tag at $300 bucks should be fine around there.

Too bad if it does have 4g no one or at least very few people will be able to use it... Have any of you looked at Sprint's 4g coverage map. There are hardly any places with it. Just saying...

Also likely will require new 4G plans, so say goodbye to $25/mo with this phone *IF* it's coming to VM.

If that's the case, It's best to move to T-Mobile for that 4G of 5GB plan, I rarely call at all.

I just saw the 4G coverage of Sprint. I myself am living at a urban area (Oakland, east of San Francisco) and has 4G coverage. Los Angeles too if I were to move there in the near future, I'm not much of a traveler either.

Cool. Sprint doesn't have any 4g around me... The closest place is Seattle which is a few hundred miles away from me...

Aww that stinks. Like Whyzor said, 4G would cost more, forcing GF'd $25 plans to be modified or changed if it comes.

Yea... They might. Or just put a very low 4g cap on... And if they start allowing tethering that will cost extra like on T-mo prepaid...

Here's my two cents:
Sprint is rolling out LTE now, they still have a contract with Clearwire for WiMax/4G thru 2015. VM will get the WiMax bands, Sprint uses the LTE, and when the contract runs out in 2015, the LTE network will be complete and VM will then move to LTE alongside Sprint.
At that point some new tech will be coming along, and LTE will be old news.

If an extra 4G fee is required for Evo 3D 4G, then it'll make my decision to go with the One V easier (still 3G). I'd only go to Tmobile's $30/mo plan if VM doesn't have any new phones coming out, but it looks like that's about to change soon.

I honestly do not want to change carrier and I do not wanna try to use 3G to surf with, i hate the waiting on the 3G. I want 4G but if that costs like an extra five bucks then it competes the T-Mobile plan ($30 bucks) for a GF'd account ($25 bucks). Any higher than I'll make the move for the best price for 4G and I do live in 4G coverage area provided by the Sprint coverage map, I do not travel around either so this is still a good move.

An unlocked Evo 3D is $375 ... so that's my guess for the price.

Their response to me asking about the Evo V 4G:

The likely price on VM would be the current "market" price for the Evo 3D, plus a bit less for VM's subsidies since the phone only works on their carrier. They can figure out the average monthly revenue a customer keeps on the carrier per device and subsidize based on that. I'm guessing $300-350 release price, then goes down from there over time.

I recently posted about Sprint upgrading to EvDo Rev B, which is about 3x faster than Rev A. The Evo 3D supports EvDo Rev B so it sounds plausible.....

Oh wow do I hope this is true. I just hope I'd be able to keep my $25 plan. If not, I'd probably hold on to my Triumph. I just get the feeling that they will introduce new "4G plans" that are required to use this phone. Hopefully I'm wrong.

I consider that MSRP Absolute BS. It's controlled by the carriers and they place it where they want it to influence customers to sign a contract to get the discount price of the phone.

I think we can consider the development costs of the phone paid for since this has been out a year. Consequently, the only costs associated with it would be the direct labor, direct materials, and overhead associated with it's manufacture. Given the age of the product, I can't imagine that these costs would exceed $300.

As for Subsidies, I doubt VM subsidizes their products at all as their service is priced so low. I think that's the point of pre-paid. Honestly, I don't expect this (if it does happen) to be priced over $400. More realistically, I'm thinking $300-$350.

I'll then be monitoring slickdeals.net for a quality price on it.

its true, the intercept when introduced to VMU was priced over 100 dollars lower than the sprint "MSRP" if you were to purchase an intercept with them. And when the VMU price fell that sprint version remained rock steady at 350.
