    Since the EVO 4G is a Sprint exclusive and is CDMA, I don't expect it to show up there at all. Not unless something better comes along later and people want to trade up. It was a lot different with the Nexus One, since it's an unlocked GSM phone which made it appealing to Europeans.

    i'm sure you'll see it on there the first day the price and date are released, and everyone who puts it up there will charge $100 more than full price and no warranty either

    I respectably disagree. I've seen many CDMA Sprint phones being sold on ebay.

    But I do agree it will be way more expensive.

    TS out

    well I meant more as like leaked prototypes of the EVO before it actually gets released and on sale to the public... there's bound to be some employee demo phones, similar to the Nexus...

    and yes, if you look on ebay, there are TONS of Sprint Heros on there (probably all in anticipation of the EVO 4G :D)

    Well, someone has to keep us (me) straight around here. I like the "respectably" disagree part. Thanks for that! :) Between you and Canuck with his technical know how, we ought to do okay around here.

    mine will probably be up within two weeks of owning it. I have a feeling I won't adjust to on screen typing ( haven't yet) and will go back to alternating with my Pixi and Moment and see what Palm brings to the table for gen 2.

    Why would you put it on ebay within two weeks? Don't you get 30 days to try out a phone and return it if you're not satisfied?

    Why even bother buying it then?

    They have demo phones in the store for a reason.

    There's about 300 reasons to sell it on ebay...

    I have a spare account where the guys is using a dumbphone. I can find phones for him cheap should he need an upgrade and gives me the freedom to try phones out and only have about a 6 month window for the next upgrade since there are usually winter/summer releases. It works out well.

    I agree there are plenty reasons, but in your original post, you cited as you would use it for 2 weeks, not adjust and then sell it.

    I was simply saying, if you were going to buy it to keep it, and know going in that you wouldn't keep it, that makes no sense.

    I didn't say I wouldn't. I said I probably wouldn't. I'm hoping the extra screen real estate makes for better keyboard spacing, and I can actually get used to on screen typing. So far I've hated it, but I like the specs of the phone and the usefulness of its features. So isn't it worth trying?
