    A few HTC EVO issues driving me MAD. about ready to call it quits SPRINT!!

    No 1. Issue: Unable to download pictures (MMS Downloads)
    Temporary Fix: Make sure I'm not on a wifi connection, use advanced task killer to "kill" messaging. Open messaging again, click on download. Picture appears!

    No. 2 Issue: Unale to text video from the phone unless its 2 seconds long. Are you kidding me?!?!
    Fix: There's no fix

    No. 3 Issue: The Favorites widget (frequently called list) and Bookmarks widget. Each time I push on someone from my "favorites" widget, it calls someone else on my favorite list, This is not an issue of me pushing the wrong button. The widget is FLAWED!!! Same thing goes for the bookmark widget....
    Fix: NOPE

    No. 4 Issue: I pay $10 extra a month for NO 4G!!! I live in Maryland no where near Baltimore.
    Fix: I suggest you credit me for the months I paid and stop charging me until 4G is available to me.

    Fix these and I might be happy.

    #2... I send video from my phone when it's longer than 2 seconds all the time. Think you might be exaggerating a little? Also, this is probably because you have the video camera set to a higher resolution... set it to a lower resolution and you'll be able to send longer video. The reason you can't send long videos is because the FILES are simply too big... this happens with ALL phones and not just the Evo, FYI.

    #4... I can't help but ask why you bought the Evo in the first place, then. If you don't like the $10 fee then this phone isn't for you... kind of silly to buy it and then complain about it later. Also, the $10 free is NOT just for 4G coverage... educate yourself.

    2 things. first off the 10.00 charge is not for 4G. It is for premium data. Because the EVO is a smart phone it runs premium data. All phones are capable of data usage but not all phones can browse the web, watch videos, search google, etc. The EVO can and actually since Jan 30, 2011 sprint applied the 10.00 premium data charge to all smart phones activated after that date because they all use premium data. It is still make sure that Sprint doesnt apply data caps like Verizon and AT&T, (which may cause overages,) and also to help maintain the data services. If you think about it more and more people are being added to the data services everyday. The data services need to be maintained. It is just like the population. Our side walks and streets need to be maintained and thats were some of our taxes go to. Do you remember when AT&T came out with the iPhone? Their servers crashed for almost a week because their data services were not ready for the expansion. Yes, stores were saying it was for 4G to make a quick sale..... if you want to express your concerns talk to the store MGR. The other thing is that yes sprint is the only one to have the EVO, but it is HTC's device. They are the ones that made it. They are the ones that couldn't work out all the kinks before they said it was ready to be sold. If you are mad that your phone sucks..... talk to HTC.

    Running a task killer only cause problems with people phones. It actually does more harm than good. I suggest taking the phone back or removing task killer then restarting your phone. Hopefully that will fix your problems. If not, factory reset or take the phone back.

    Over Yonder
    Mms only works over 3g...

    There are many sprint and market functions that operate this way...some work on 3g only some only on wifi...others on both.

    I think everything else is covered...

    Use low video settings for video to be sent or upload it to YouTube if its HD

    The 4g vs premium data fee has been beat to death many times. It is not referred to as a 4g fee because it isn't. Smart phones use more data period end of story....surely you knew 4g wasn't available prior to purchase.

    The widget issue has been posted and the fix is a hard reset.
