    Well, here's a possible fix for the contact issue. I've been trying this for a few hours, and it seems to be working pretty well.

    while the delay is excusable their PR efforts have been horrible.

    as someone with a background in PR, I would be embarrassed to work in sprints customer care/PR department.
    This times a 1000. There is absolutely no excuse as to why Sprint hasn't come clean with an official response to what has been happening during this entire fiasco.

    I have never actually had that issue... I turned off facebook contacts with my old evo because it was matching up numbers with the wrong number and I never turned it back on. I just posted that for the other people who were having the issue. But the data thing is really making me angry... If I have my lte turned on I don't get any data. If I turn it to just cdma it works fine but we have 4g lte here so it sucks I can't use it. Even when I run cm10 it does that. Its weird.

    I have about 450 phone numbers from across the years. 75% of those are probably facebook friends. the remaining would be random businesses, landlines, etc that I need.

    I dont sync those who are exclusively fbook friends with no numbers (that would be a few hundred more)


    I have almost zero lag in the contacts app.
    Stock, non rooted 4.0.3

    texting on the other hand, is long delay as I never delete texts (prob have 10-15K on my device)

    You're right, I must have been thinking of HSPA? I don't know. Either way, I don't see CDMA carriers upgrading their 3G networks.
    actually, sprint recently spent $200 million to upgrade their 3G

    I think you sense matches phone numbers/google contacts with fb friends.

    go to the fb app and look at the settings for sync, should be one about existing contacts only.

    Go to settings on the Facebook app and sync only existing contacts. Or else let facebook sync everyone and go one by one taking off unwanted contacts by deleting them.

    That wasn't an upgrade, they spent that money on legacy equipment to improve capacity, not to upgrade it to a faster standard.

    Either the sprintcare rep is a total ***** (which may be the case) or we may actually be getting an "bug fix" update on ICS. Either way, Sprint/HTC has dropped the ball with lack of info
    More than likely she's a complete ***** as the majority of anybody whom works for sprint.....

    Dec 1St and still nothing. My Nexus 7 just got its fourth update this morning since buying it. Only two for the EVO since purchasing it on the first day of availability. Does that mean the EVO is more stable and therefore a better product? Just thinking out loud.

    Will it?
    Will it break FoxFi [probably]? Will it fix the inability of Sense to rotate the home and lock screens [no]? Will it free up more memory to prevent poor task switching [no]? Will it fix the contacts and LTE problems some people have [maybe]? Will it make the settings and other menus sort in alphabetical order [probably not]? Will it introduce any new bugs [possibly]? Will it be the last major OS update the Evo LTE will ever see [maybe]? Will it add USB flash and HID support [I doubt it]? Will it take away USB mass storage mode [might]?

    Trust me, there will be plenty to continue to complain about, regardless of the OS version, the handset, or the manufacturer.

    Sounds like someone is a little pessimistic this morning..

    On a brighter note: One more day... Hopefully!

    To be honest, I for one can't complain about anything because if you think about it not to long ago we were simply amazed to be able to play the snake game on our nokias. The things that these devices can do now are truly amazing. When I personally think back to those days it makes it easier to put up with these miniscule issues.
