    SMS, like digital voice, is a 2G service - text send/receive works via CDMA even with 3G, 4G, and wifi all turned off.

    Under normal conditions, you can move around all day with 3G and wifi on and just not care about battery life (turn off "Network notification" under "Wi-Fi settings").

    If you tend to keep data services running (background data, email updates, twitter, etc) and you're in a fringe or poor signal area where you may not care that stuff, then turn off your radios - that was Evo advice. With the newer phones and better efficiency, you may find that even that step just isn't that important.

    Yes, I am Mormon. The reason why I can't buy it on Sunday is because we aren't suppose to make other people work on Sundays, and buying is making them work.

    hey folks i got mine yesterday at 10:30am.. and GOD am i PLEASED!! :D
    also supposedly sprint store were opening at 8am and mine opened at 9:30am i was 2 hours out side waiting man that really pissed me off.. and also i had the GC from sprint and i ended up paying $201.95 and the 50 GC, making a grand total of $251.95 WoW that was a shock for me and plus the activation fee $18 and the $10 for Data and my regular unlimited plan 450 min.. i think i didnt had any deal at all. next time im going to wait till online first time to buy from sprint online webpage, i could save at least $60 and having it early, but also i have the $50 GC from BB and yet i have to go return it but by phone they said i cant return it because i already went over the 30 days, c'mon if the code thing still unscratched.. but ill go personally later on to check what i can do if not ill just buy the 3vo Dock that BB is selling for $49.99+ tax..
    Well that was my experience fellas and a SUPER PLUS i come from a BRICK Samsung Instinct so this is a MAYOR upgrade for me and i really dont know HOW in the name of the most HOLY thing (whatever is there lol) i was living without one of this BEAUTIES!!..

    Got mine! I went to pick it up yesterday (I pre-ordered) and found out last night that there was something wrong with it: It wouldn't charge if the phone was on, and if I tried to use the flash to take a picture, it would say "unable to use flash due to cold weather". I live in Florida, there's no such thing as cold weather here.

    I went back today and got a replacement, and it's working great, I'm very happy with the phone. My HTC Touch Pro is now officially retired! :)

    I ordered mine Saturday night from Amazon. It should be here on Wednesday. I'm so excited! I've been watching online videos and there just doesn't seem to be anything currently that tops the Evo 3D. Coming from my aospCMod Hero, the 3vo will be what I wanted all along... a phone that works out of the box! I love my Hero, after I rooted it, but now I'm finally getting what I thought I was with the Hero... WORKING SENSE!!!

    still don't have mine... :( i was really banking on today being the day. But sadly, it is not. I have high hopes for tomorrow. If not tomorrow then i will really start to get anxious and a little irritated at how slow the shipping process has taken.

    Did they give you a tracking number? Mine was pretty accurate. I'd be calling the seller right now asking for it. :)

    no they did not. I am calling my rep tomorrow to see what the deal is. It is through my parent's business sales rep. they are a small business and have their own sprint agents and she gave me a ton of discounts but she said it would be leaving the warehouse on friday then arriving hopefully saturday or today. at the latest, Tuesday.

    I preordered it through Best Buy a month early, but on the day of my pick up appointment I decided to go to the Sprint store across the street first to see what my upgrade allowance was. Since I was 4 months shy of my 2 years, the Sprint guy said he'd hook me up with the full upgrade allowance. Got the phone, bought the only case with a built in kickstand, and headed out the door to go grab some lunch. Arrived at Chipotle's, took the phone with me but left the box and my old Touch Pro 2 in the car, hidden from plain sight. Came back to my car with food in hand, no more than 15 minutes later, and both the box (including charger) and my old phone were gone... Wow, all in a matter of a few minutes. What a nightmare. Fortunately I brought the phone with me. Otherwise that would be gone too.

    I ended up going straight back to the Sprint store to buy a charger, but I wasn't crazy about the way their all-in-one charger looked. Then I remembered the $50 dollar gift card I had to purchase from Best Buy when I pre-ordered it from them, so I just bought both the car and home charger.

    But aside from that first day nightmare, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this phone. This is my first Android phone, and I can't see myself getting anything else from this point forward. My main reason for getting this phone was for the glasses-less 3D feature, and the fact that you can take 3D pictures and video. Because buying those two tpes of devices alone would cost thousands of bucks. So why not get a cell phone that can do all of that for far less. Not only that, but I'm a full supporter of the whole "Modern 3D revolution".

    So it's my hope that HTC will continue with this phone for many years to come, because I don't see myself getting anything else. Unless HTC comes up with a newer version with the same 3D capabilities. But for now, I'm perfectly content.

    Just ordered mine...telesales was painful. Agent was nice but...we'll just leave it there. Anyway, they say it should arrive by Monday. Did everyone else have 2-5 day shipping? If so...how long did it actually take? Did they charge you shipping fees also? The phone was $199 but the telesales agent mentioned a $100 mail-in rebate? I think she was just confused. Anyone else have a MiR mentioned?

    you should get rebates up front. shipping for majority is overnight standard, no cost.

    Hmm, maybe I'll see about getting the shipping waived. I was charged $12 for shipping...lame.

    I orderd mine on a Wednesday night and got it Friday afternoon if I remember correctly. All I know is that it was pretty fast.
