    went to a metro store with an old evo 4g and they signed me up.
    i just have 2 questions i have the answering machine from metro, but i cant figure out how i get notified when some one leaves a message any ideas?
    also the icon on the top of the phone next to the wifi icon i think is the gps icon. i have gps turned off and the icon now has a line through it, is there a way to make that icon go away?

    The voicemail notification bug is a little tricky with metro flashed evos. There is a tutorial in the EVO all things root forum that can probably help you with that. I'm not on metro so I'm not 100% sure how to help you with that. I'm on my phone currently or I would link you to the guide directly, sorry.

    Now the icon I know how to change. That will involve opening up the Rom and removing the image for the icon. You'll need to download the Rom you're using and with 7zip navigate to: System / Framework / framework-res.apk In that .apk locate the res folder and then open drawable-hdpi in there you'll find the icon images. Locate the images you want to get rid of and simply open them with an image program like Gimp, and erase the image, but leave the canvas. Don't delete the icon entirely, just erase the image and save. Repackage everything up and flash the ROM with the changes. Or you can use the UOT kitchen and make an update .zip.

    Another method is to use metamorph to accomplish this while on your phone. That's if they left your phone rooted.

    I believe the only way to accomplish this is to either be in a 4G area or have access to a WiFi connection.

    The data and phone work off of the same radio so having both on at the same time isn't possible.

    I'm suprised the notifications weren't fixed. :(
