    I kept thinking that where I lived just did not have 4G tower close to me. I live on the out skirts of Houston, but that is not the case. I looked at the map and did the street view. My house sits right inside a dead zone. Ain't that some sh!t? I am probably the only person on my street with an Evo and I can't even use the 4G. Just thought I would try and make you guys laugh. I think it is humerous!!!! :)

    I'm right outside Houston too (Conroe) and while there's a fabulous 4G signal straight up I-45, my house is just outside it. Oh, well. I use wifi at home and 4G at work, so it's all good.

    Have you guys tried the 4g mods at XDA? Its giving people better signal farther out on 4g after the changes?

    I wouldn't sweat it. The installers that pop up on here and XDA have said the first wave will be upgrading all 3G. It'll happen :)

    I know how you feel....there's 4g all around me. The coverage map actually has all of my neighbors (up the street) getting coverage and then cuts off right before my house.
    Standing in my driveway...no 4g
    Standing in the back of my truck....connects to 4g but often loses signal
    Walk up the street 2 houses...1 bar of 4g
    lol...oh well, I just moved back to my apartment for college so there's no 4g anywhere near here anyways :(
