    why the hell don't we get the update from HTC, this should be offered to those of us that purchase an HTC phone even if it is on sprint (*$(@#@# worthless network. here in Oklahoma we still pay the $10 more a month for the 4g we are told yet we don't have 4g here.

    we have put up with crappy service here for 2 years. we are told "they have towers down in your area, been told that they are 160% over capacity being they are now selling the iphone, have been told that they have been kicked off towers they were leasing. I have heard so many excuses from them. my wife and I drop around 50% or our calls a day we call in and they just give us credit. I don't want credit just fix the #$(*@.

    as soon as they put a cap on their data plan I am dropping their sorry @#$$.

    our county and local PD just dumped sprint and went to Verizon because of the poor service, our laptops would not stay connected. I heard Cox communications in Oklahoma dumped them for Verizon because of the same issues.

    I guess I am just going to root mine tonight. Screw Sprint!!!!

    Just meant that Rogers pushed ICS for their EVO 3D today

    Sprint however is still sitting on their rear end (and my "Good job Sprint" comment was a sarcastic one - hence the "Not")

    So it's clear - the extra $10 per month is on all smartphones, and is not a 4G charge. ;)

    Go with MeanROM GB or ICS. They are both outstanding and everything works

    I thought this thread was for whining and complaints only. Although everyone that can't wait for ICS already has a rooted ROM version, the real thing must be outstanding. Don't get me wrong, I want it just as bad after reading this thread for 6 months.

    I sent an email to CS about a few things and I asked them when the release for ICS was....here is their reply, so take it for what it is worth....

    "The Android 4.0 update for your HTC EVO 3D has a set ETA of mid-July."

    So, by this reply, we should see it within the next 10 days or so......

    We have heard so many lies like this from sprint cs over the years I bet if you did a poll 95%+ would agree that mid July will not happen.

    Everyone relax, a Sprint rep (that appears legitimate...) posted on the "official" Sprint Community forum that ICS is in final testing for the Evo3D...apparently he is a 3D owner as well so understands our anticipation.

    I just love this phone so much, its so prompt with updates and releases. I find it amazing how sprint does exactly what they say and what we request from them. Sprint is just outstanding with its responsiveness. Thank you so much sprint.

    ^^^^^^^^^^ 110% sarcasm

    You know the Evo3d got screwed by Sprint when it looks like the E4gt is going to get ICS before we do. Terrible when Samsung gets a major update faster than HTC. Has that ever happened before? :)

    It's ironic in retrospect, but when I was shopping for my first Android it came down between the Evo3D and the SGS2. One of the many reasons I picked the Evo3D was HTCs track record with update support. Today as the SGS2 for Sprint gets ICS, I feeling kind of upset. I am looking on the bright side though! At least I don't still have a Palm Pre =)

    Yeah, it is a bit disheartening to have the E4GT get ICS first. I wasn't in any real hurry for it after playing with it on the the OneX anyway. Now I am not going to worry about it. 4gLTE is turned on for Wichita, so I will be picking up an Evo4gLTE. Just have to decide if I want the white or black one. My wife is keeping her Evo3d and I will send mine to my mother in law to replace her horrible blackberry. It really is too bad Sprint dropped the ball so much on supporting the Evo3d, because it really is a great phone.

    At first I was thinking that this was only Sprint's fault, not updating the 3D to ICS, but I am now thinking it is both Sprint and HTC. All the other 3Ds are just now getting ICS. The international version has had it only a few weeks now, maybe a month. The Canadian version just recently got theirs. So this tells me that HTC is partly to blame. But, Virgin Mobile has had theirs since May 30, from the release day of their 3D. I don't see how Virgin could have gotten theirs and Sprint not have theirs when they run on the same network? Or am I am missing something? Is the Virgin Mobile version much different from ours?

    The lesson I've learned from all this is to stay away from HTC phones. From here on out, it's only Nexus devices. (yes I'm aware the Nexus One was an HTC phone)

    I will also be buying only Nexus devices from here out. I love my Evo3D, it's a great phone, but I don't ever want to have to wait for updates again.

    I don't think this is HTC. HTC has gotten the ICS updates to all its other devices, and before the SGS2 to boot. This issue is with Sprint. One more reason for me to switch carriers next year, TBH.

    I am as upset as you guys are, however just remember our phones still work really well and that 2.3.4 isn't doing us any disservice =)

    HTC has gotten the ICS updates to all other devices is true, but not the 3D. The 3D has taken longer than any other device. You can see this if you look how long its taken the international and Canadian version to get theirs. So its not just a Sprint thing, its an HTC thing also. I personally think that HTC just does not really care much about this phone anymore. It was/is a great phone. It just was not marketed right in my opinion.

    For me I cannot say I would stay away from HTC phones. Even though I'm using a SGS3 right now, I still think very highly of HTC. I have had three HTC phones, and liked all of them. I would love to see what HTC could do with another Nexus device. You do realize that CDMA Nexus phones will take a little longer on the updates than the GSM versions? Look how long it took the Nexus S on Sprint to get ICS. So having a Nexus device does not guaranty you will have the next update as soon as it is released. You still have to wait on carrier if you are on a CDMA network. That being said, I think I am going to go with a Nexus device next time also.

    The 3D features are more difficult to write code for than a normal phone. From my understanding, this is primarily what has caused the delay versus the other HTC phones. I think HTC cares, they just have a lot of devices to get ICS to and JB is already coming. :eek:

    Don't get me wrong the Evo3D is not a priority device for HTC or Sprint anymore, but it's not an intentional "slide" to HTC customers who purchased a 3D. That's just the nature of the industry. The newer devices get priority.

    ICS is still coming, albeit relatively late compared to other devices.
