    Hello everyone
    I live north of Dallas tx and have had my EVO for about three weeks now. I can get good 4g signal at my shop but just 3 miles north at my home it is sparce. So one night I went on sprints website and did a search for new towers in my area and saw three 3g towers going up. I got a little pissed since I have a 4g phone and want to use the 4g not 3g, so I called sprint cust care and talked with a lady wich confermed the three new towers going up in the next two months. She also told me that all of the new towers going up are 4g sprint just taggs them 3g on thier site. I hope that all of you get 4g quickly also because it is FAST FAST FAST.

    I know exactly what you mean....I keep my 4G off (kinda redundant) and I only use when I have to in order to save my battery.

    What's your battery life like with 4G on?

    It's not that good...I can't make it through a 8 hour day at work with 4G on...but I've also turned off, GPS,Bluetooth and Wi-fi.

    Hmmm... I wonder if they'll improve the WiMax radio power draw as time goes on.

    I live in Las Colinas (Irving) and I get only 1 bar of 4G inside my apartment. But when I go towards 114 I get full bars.

    When I drive into Fort Worth for work I get 1 bar, however when I'm on 820/183E I get full bars. So I agree that 4G is spotty here and I hope Sprint keeps adding more towers.

    I live near Down Town and my 4G coverage is low but still i get it. At my office in NE Dallas, I have to go outside my to get 4G. I checked the map and i am in a low 4G area for work but with plans for future coverage.

    Heres why 4G is not so great.
    Lower Power, Higher Frequency, = not good for In building coverage.
    FYI, they put the 4G infrastrucutre on towers they own or have contracts with. By doing this they were able to put up the system fast but with many holes. Since each 3G tower has longer range, and the 3G/4G sites share the same tower, there are significant gaps in coverage. If your phone has full signal, chances are your 4G will have at least 1 bar, if your phone has only a couple of bars of 3G, no 4G. That is untill they start the buildout of the gaps and holes from the original installs.
