    so i just unlocked and rooted the design 4g. It gave me some message that world mode doesn't work in the USA or something like that. My goal is to flash a evo design 4g from boost to tmobile so i can just put my simcard in the phone and make calls. Is this possible???

    just a simple yes or no will do fine. I don't need a whole explanation.

    I'm thinking no until we can unlock that part of the phone besides this phone is set up for wimax 4g and not the lte that t mobile uses.

    T-Mobile doesn't do 4G LTE at all, they do plain 'ole 4G. But I'm not sure if it's possible to change this phone over to T-Mobile and even so if their 4G will work with this phone. I believe I read the phone needs S-Off to do it, but I wouldn't quote me on that.

    I just went and looked at T-mobile site and yes it is lte 4g and yes our phones still has s-on because no one has been able to achieve s-off yet.
    That is the part of our phone I was referring to as being locked.

    This phone is wimax 4g so I really don't think it will work with t-mobile but one of the devs might can tell you a way.

    It'd love to see where their site says they have 4G LTE.
    T-Mobile's network is HSPA+, not LTE.
    Support: 4G Overview

    Q&A with Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer of T-Mobile talking about their plans to roll-out LTE sometime this year (2013):
    T-Mobile Expands 4G Network to New Cities | Issues & Insights Blog

    That said, while the HTC EVO Design 4G is a world phone and supports many of the networks(CDMA dual-band EVDO + WiMAX + HSPA/UMTS and GSM/GPRS/EDGE network), it's not listed to support HSPA+ which is what T-Mobiles 4G network is.

    Ok cool not gonna waste time. S-on will not let you use Sims unless you leave the country. Have a great day.

    I looked up what you were saying and you were right but I did go today and look at there site and it did say lte so maybe they are starting to launch it now.
