I have had the EVO since launch day. Live and work in Houston and 4G might as well be non-existant. Does not work near my home or my office in the Energy Corridor. Heck, it does not work at the Sprint service center on Hwy 6. Was pretty disillusioned with the 4G thing as another useless sales gimmic....Until yesterday. We are in Ft. Worth, at the Will Rogers center near downtown for a car show event. 4G works here. Even inside the exhibit hall I have 3 bars of 4G. In the RV lot in our motorhome I have 4 bars. All I can say is WOW. I have used PDAnet for a connection on my laptop, watched the evening news from home via sling, read email and just for fun used sprinttv and tv.com to watch some vids. Instant access and fast speeds both on the phone and on the laptop. Some other features I noted as well. While on PDAnet on the laptop, the phone, including data access works normally without intrupting the data connection for the laptop. PDAnet's onscreen SMS applet is cool as well (SMS messages pop up on your computer screen while connected. you can even respond to them). I really look forward to actually having REAL 4G service in Houston someday. Someday when it works rather than just being advertised. Where it works, its truly awsome.
