    I was wondering if anyone knew about what deals will be available for Hero users that want to switch to the Evo? Is there any way switch to the Evo without further extending the length of your current contract? Do you have to start paying an additional monthly fee due to the fact that the Evo is a 4G phone? I currently have the Everything family plan, and was thinking about using the Evo with just 3G, if that was possible. Thanks

    If you bought your Hero at Best Buy

    Depends who you know/talk to. generally no but people claim they have.


    If you want the EVO you have to pay the $10, even if 4g isn't in your area.

    Do you have to pay $10 per month for EACH Evo you have in the family plan? Or just $10 flat, regardless if you have maybe 2 or 3 Evos in the data plan?

    a dealbreaker is an additional ten dollars per month, per evo.
    a cellular device is not worth an additional, tertiary monthly fee just to own it.
    ill be waiting for the dual core snapdragon chip...or the htc legend

    there is a lot more then just owning the device, it costs lots of money to send all this data that we think is free, and it costs lots and lots of money to build the towers and maintain them, so a 10 dollar fee is nothing, plus that 10 dollar fee does give you UNLIMITED 3G/4G service, not the 5gb cap that is on most devices, so you can use as much data as you want, for 10 dollars that is dirt cheap, so stop bitchin about it please
  6. hopefully those won't have a $15/month fee!

    29.99 gets you 4g/wimax.
    the 10.00 is merely an owners fee

    Actually, $10.00 is for the 4G, $29.99 allows you to use your phone as a wifi hotspot, (basically it allows you to do wifi tether without root access). Also, remember that the $10.00 is mandatory, the $29.99 is not.
