    I am extremely disappointed with the Sprint Evo! So much so that I may go back to my simple little metro pcs phone and go back to using an aircard.
    I have connection problem after connection problem. If I do finally connect, speeds are painfully slow - even after going to a Sprint store to troubleshoot. I'm also not able to use it with both of my laptops at once.
    Looks like the marketing was just all hype. :(!!!

    Sounds like you either live in an area with poor sprint coverage, or you had a jacked up phone. I WOULD suggest asking for a replacement Evo, but from the way it sounds, you've already returned it. Oh well.

    To support my evidence on that, my Evo never has a problem connecting to 3g, nor does it have any issues with multiple devices connected to it through the the hotspot.

    Same here. Both work flawlessly.

    Might I suggest sticking around for more than 2 posts? There is tons of info on this site, and plenty of helpful people.

    But if you just want to be done with it, apparently joshuar would like to help you with liquidating your problem :p

    I think it's the coverage. It's too bad becuz I liked the phone, especially because of the slide out keyboard.
    GPS also gave me issues in certain spots here in SW Florida.
    I hope Sprint lets me know when they significantly improve service here.

    I wish I would've found this site b4. However, I'm not sure if it would have helped the connection issues. We called Sprint twice and they didn't know how to help us. We also went to the Sprint store and followed the tech's advice but are still having major issues. My husband is in the military and won't be here to help me deal with all the tech issues and our 30 days are up.

    ummmm.... Slide out keyboard? WTF are you talking about, there is no slide out keyboard on the Evo, it's a slate phone.

    Suggest you check the phone model and figure out what you actually have, cause it AIN'T an Evo if it has a slide out keyboard.

    Slide out keyboard? GPS not working? Slow 3g speeds? Now it all makes sense.... you got an epic, not an Evo.

    That's the phone that's been giving you your problems, my friend. Get it swapped out. I guarantee your problems are most likely going to go away then.

    SLIDE OUT KEYBOARD? POOR CONNECTIONS SPEEDS? GPS NOT WORKING? Sounds like the nightmare of a phone: The Samsung Moment. I experienced the same nightmare until I switch to my dream phone. The lovely HTC EVO 4G.

    I'm sure they give you a call when things are straightened out. They're really good about that.

    I like the Evo's slide-out 17" monitor. Makes viewing in a crowd great!! That and the slide-out moped to take me to work everyday makes this phone a keeper (if auto insurance isnt too high on it!!!)
