    I'm I the only person here that has experienced a argument about your phone? My wife is wishing I never bought the phone because I'm always on it. This phone is so addicting!

    Well, this could be a problem. Or not. Depends on if she wants you to do chores, or do her.

    My wife was upset at first that I sold her 3GS to get her the EVO. We both had jailbroke iPhones. She hated the EVO at first. I heard it all the time. Now she likes the phone a lot more.

    My girl is always complaining. But I just smack her cheeks and it's all good for a day or two.

    I've had the EVO since early June and my gf has hated on, and been jealous of my EVO since day one! It got so bad that I would literally wait for her to go to bed so that I could enjoy my EVO in peace (smh). I just bought her an EVO last week and I haven't heard a peep out of her since! Once she experienced Google Voice Search, Google Calendar (along with the "HTC Agenda" widget), and the 8MP camera, it was a wrap! After fiddling with her EVO for a few hours, she was like, "I get it now!"

    Hate to say it, but the best way to resolve the dreaded "EVO argument" (which you CANNOT win) is to go ahead and buy an EVO for your partner. Honestly, it's the best $200 I ever spent...

    I have WAY more fun with my wife than I do with my cell-phone. It's a wonderful thing, actually.

    You're telling me that a cell-phone became a point of divide between you and your girlfriend? *sigh*

    The best way to resolve the issue is to be a bit more personable when around your significant other. Not a single "EVO argument" with my wife (she has a Hero) since I bought mine. Are you two the type that will text/IM each other from across the living room?

    my wife has always complained about me being on my phones. once we got her a hero it all stopped. now shes on her hero more then im on my evo, example, yesterday we were out all day. my evo was still at 87% when we got home. her hero was at 30% lol both started full in the morning(this is with her having her hero since march)


    edit: this doesnt keep us from having fun with each other tho ;)

    I'm not sure I like the implication here that some of us females weren't just as excited as you males to get this phone all on our own on launch day...

    Just giving you a hard time, in care you weren't already getting enough of one from your wives and girlfriends. :)

    My gf is on her incredible constantly, so I don't hear anything. Would be cool if she had an evo too though :)

    Anyone here get into that video sexting with their significant other? If interested, there's a how-to over at gizmodo :)

    We just paid to get out of the contract. It was cheaper.

    Dividing point? Not at all! Perhaps my choice of words (EVO argument) was a bit hyperbolic, and unlike your wife who has a Hero, my gf had an old Blackberry, so she had no point of reference regarding my EVO usage. And no, we do not text each other from across the room. We actually interact with each other personally when we happen to find ourselves in the same room...

    All I was trying to convey humorously -- although it appears I missed the mark -- is that my significant other didn't understand why I "love" my EVO, until she got one herself. Thanks for the relationship advice though!

    Thats what I used to get, too! I remember my GF's upgrade was due the same time as the EVO launch and mine was due to following month. Everytime shed come over I would say, "Can I check out your phone?" I'd be on it all night. She got very frustrated at times. lol Luckily (for her) Sprint let me upgrade 2 weeks early and she didnt have to put up with that for the whole month.
