Hardware v0003 & 0004 difference
I had the evo 4g 0003 but traded it in for a EVO 3D. Few months later, my wife got the Evo 4g for free at BB. She has the white one with hardware v 0004. What is pissing me off is her wifi Works great. Full bar in our bedroom when I used to get 1. I had all the updates on my EVO 4g and hers out of the box has better wifi. Now my evo 3d has awsome wifi. But still when I had my EVO 4g I could not go very far. I was told it was a firmware issue and an update would come. Others complained about crappy wifi on the forums too. I may have kept the 4g if the wifi was not so bad on it. 4g service is not available at my home, but is two blocks away.

I don't have issues connecting to WiFi but my WiFi speed sux. The most I get is 5mbps on speed tests, even standing beside the router. My wifes epic gets 12-13mbps on speed tests which is more accurate since we have 15mbps cable internet service. I don't know if its the EVOs in general or just mine but seems odd to me.

Re: Hardware v0003 & 0004 difference
I have v0003 and have always noticed that the wifi antenna was a bit weak. There are times I still use my old Pre for wifi connectivity (for Pandora, etc) because the antenna picks up the connection a lot better.
