    HW 003, Battery Door Date 6/14/2010
    I'm not installing the Update as I never had an issue with battery management.

    Oh and Sprint recovered my old cell number! Sprint Rocks!

    Edit:
    No grounding issues on this phone.

    Edit 2:
    I have a Novatech screen. :D
    Can this day get any better!

    My replacement didn't have grounding issues either but it did have an ugly scratch on the screen so I'm waiting for EVO #3 :(

    How do you guys get your replacements? You just tell sprint?
    I'm still on my first one and my light leakage is getting worst, and really annoying.
    I also want to know if I should do it before my 30 days are up or later when a newer hardware version is out

    I know how you feel.
    I think that my replacement Evo has an Epson, and surprisingly enough I think I might like it even better, but I did love my Novatek too.:)

    Update: My new screen is a Novatek too! No wonder I think it is amazing.

    My 1st 3 came from BB. My last one came from Sprint. If I was you I'd just return the thing and cancel the contract.

    Then I'd reorder from Sprint and once you get it do what I did and tell them you want to recover you old cell number (can't promise you they can), but then you get a fresh new 30 days to try it out.

    Another good thing is if you order from Sprint.com you can get the EVO for $150 by doing cancel at check out trick.

    Down side you gotta do the rebate dance. :D

    Im in the same boat. Still on number 1 and iv had no screen issues, no light leakage, no grounding issues.

    Very little lag but coming from the BB pearl this is a ton faster so im not complaining.

    I am very happy with this phone.

    The 1st 3 yes all under the same purchase and under the 30 days. The 4th one I paid for again after giving up on BB.

    Now I have a new 30 days to play with it.
