    Am I correct in this? How did this happen? :thinking:

    (Yes, I know that many people got free EVO's at the Google I/O)

    This is what happens when you give out free phones to some of the smartest geeks on the planet.

    It happened for a few reasons:

    1. HTC/Verizon have tied down a lot of the loopholes on the Incredible people usually exploit to obtain root.
    2. I'm guessing not many people bought Incredibles, in anticipation of phones like the EVO, Droid 2, etc.
    3. Free EVO phones to the attendees of Google's I/O conference.

    Your next phone? You won't be happy with your Evo that long? Wow..... though I can't say much... haven't even had Android a full year yet and I'm already sick of the problems with my Hero that are un-fixable...

    I haven't had mine either for a year. I had my Moment since December and am eligible for an upgrade in November. I have no idea what phones will be available at that time but I don't want a screen size any smaller than 4 inches.
