    Hello, I live in Sweden and I am drooling for EVO.

    I could just buy it and use it as a Wifi phone (I am under wifi coverage 90% of my day), but it wont be a true mobile then.

    Is it possible to hack the Wimax chip of EVO. I am thinking if the Wimax devices which are given out by vendors here in Sweden follow the same principal, then would it be possible to use your device with some other provider.

    I know its a long shot, rooting the device to some other wimax network, but it doesnt hurt to ask.

    I see that the chip being used is Sequans SQN210 (HTC Evo 4G: What's inside first WiMAX smartphone). I am not sure which exact standard and frequency does Sprint follow in USA and what alternatives are comparable to it else where (have to investigate, but first if its even possible to mod the wimx chip/ROM/whatever it is that makes it go)
