    I'M STILL IN MEXICO FOR ANOTHER 1O DAYS!!!!

    ...and I've been waking up at night dreaming of it since I got the notification it shipped from Wirefly 2 day ago...and...

    I couldn't wait so...I had my girlfriend unbox it for me (yes via webcam) and give it the old run through as best she knew how...

    I can not wait to get home, I've been here for 4 months. 2 days before I left got the email from Sprint saying 4G would be in Cincinnati by the end of the year, and that the EVO would be released in July. So i've been following the forum every day reading everything since then.

    And yes in the pictures she is testing out the front facing camera, and was teasing me with all the phone could do, and yes might I add herself!!!

    Thank you to everyone for making this HELL for me having to wait, but I can't wait to get home and have my life changed!!

    P.S. she's going to hate looking at the tiny screen on her Blackberry 8530 after having experienced that!!!

    Thats what I'm scared of!!!

    I know, but she said she wants a physical keyboard, so I told her to wait for the Epic (plus that way I can experience both of the wonderful devices!)

    Trust me, the nazi's would have used this had they had this technology at their hands!

    And both of you Arizonians could have brought me an Evo a month ago! I'm only in Hermosillo after all, just a couple of hours away!

    my prediction: in ten days (when you come home) shell have that thing customized the way she likes it with her FB syncd and phone book transfered. There is no way youre getting this phone back dude. YOU are the one who will need to buy the new phone. haha

    Good luck! :)

    It's funny that's actually almost exactly how it went! However at first she thought the kickstand was how you took the battery door off:rolleyes: but once I said no it's a kickstand and it took her a second and she realized how amazing even that simple feature was!! She is also absolutely in love with the soft touch on the back...is it really that pleasant to hold?!?

    OMG you let her unbox it and play with it? You will never get it back now. Better call Sprint and get on another waiting list! ;)

    She says it needs a physical keyboard for her but I told her to try Swype but Im pretty sure she does want to mess with downloading the apk final and correct me if I'm wrong but that's the only way right now right??

    Cross your fingers she doesn't have a nerdy bone in her =] if she is a past android user, its all over. (sharp writer) though i think thats taken off the market as well. HIDE THE BLIND KEYBOARD from her!

    She tries to be nerdy lol but she's a blackberry user...so I have a chance of getting it when I get back, atleast I hope!! I should have told her to try speak to text from what I've seen it seems to work pretty well...but then the phone may be gone :(
