    Whenever I talk to her about it, she says, "But it's from Sprint." :thinking:

    I haven't asked her, "What's wrong with Sprint," but many of their plans are cheaper than AT&T.

    She currently has an iPhone 3GS (AT&T).

    How do I convince her that the Evo 4G is much better than what she has right now?

    She knows very little about electronics/computers, so it has to be something that would make sense to her. :)

    Everything else I say about the phone just goes over her head because she doesn't understand what I'm talking about... :p

    i sold the idea of a desire to my mum by:

    1. Pointing out how much cheaper it is
    2. Showing off all the customization and flexbility in the OS
    3. Promising to be her tech support for the phone
    4. Keep techie stuff basic, Android is more flexable, can do more useful stuff, faster. Dont need to tell her exactly why its faster.

    If she knows very little and it goes over her head ... what's the use in her having the EVO?

    Tell her about Sprint TV and show it has a kickstand. What does she use her phone for? If it is internet browsing, I am sure there are iPhone vs Evo internet threads.
