    Doing research on eBay, I found if I put Rogers EVO 3D case, it shows that the case for Sprint/Rogers/T-Mobile are all the same, hope that helps

    thanks. i already ordered it few days ago should be here tomorrow or tuesday. i checked gsm arena and looked at the dimesions it looked a little different but hopefully it will work. i hate buying cases in retail stores they too over priced.

    Vendors pull this trick to get people to think they need a specific case for their handset. That way, if cases are rare or hard to find for the handset, they can charge more sometimes. This could also be done so that people specifically looking for a certain carrier's version of a handset's case can find it easily. A lot of people will not buy a case unless it specifically says it is made for their carrier's version of the handset.

    Oftentimes, they are exactly the same dimensions for the various flavors of the handset. Of course there are exceptions, like the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus is thicker than the GSM counterpart, just to name one.

    well. my fingers are crossed. im really barely playing around with my evo 3d just because i dont want to scratch it or anything like that. i know it sounds an*l but i have always done the same and waited till i get a case and a screen protector. lol the thing is that in the front of the evo or the screen they have the htc logo on the left side in sprint version and htc logo in the middle in the gsm version. so thats what really got me wondering if they are actually different who knows.. if it doesnt fit ill probably have to end up buying it at retail for 3x the price.
