how much data are you using?
the whole idea behind sprints bull#@$@ evo fee is that even if were not on 4g we will still use more data. so did anybody find any truth to this coming from another android phone or pre?
i cant test it myself yet. im still with waiting for my sprint store to be able to order the evo, then ill still have to wait for it to come in.

Well anytime you get a new device you are going to use and abuse it. I think simply because the larger screen and much faster browsing experience will compel me to use the evo more than my hero. Much less all the other crap I already installed like quik and the other social networking apps.

When I'm not in a wifi zone... don't worry, I plan on tethering. This $10 fee is definitely going to get its use.
The sad thing is... my Pre used more data than my Evo does right now.
Because my Pre had WebOS... talk about pulling a lot of stuff from the web.
I would get like 500,000 MB to 2 gigs on my Pre... cause I surfed a lot on the Pre.
The Evo... in 6 days, I've used 30,000 MB... Not bad, but could use more.
Then again, it's summer... No need to use my phone when I have my laptop right here.

I thought my data usage with the Pre was high, around 2-5GBs a month. With this single week with the EVO, I've used over 1GB already.
But even before checking my data usage with the EVO, I already knew it was substantially higher than the Pre: I haven't touched my laptop or netbook at home ever since.
I'm even thinking of selling the netbook for a 18mm-300mm lens for my Nikon...

I had read somewhere that the data usage you're seeing is for the 3G network...that they aren't tracking 4G use. Looking at my usage, I think this bears out as I stream Pandora and MLB At Bat at work 7 hours on 4G...my account shows my data usage is less than 400,000KB. I only use 3G for Pandora streaming driving to and from work as 4G is still spotty and raises havoc with Pandora.

got mine launch day(that night) and have used 14.5MB. Im usually around wifi if playing with it, if not im in 1xrtt with a whopping ~100kbps speed so I lose interest trying to use the network to browse real quick at those speeds. did just use pandora for a 20 minute drive and dl a few songs on imusic so maybe tomorrow Ill show 30mb or so...

Sprint Data - 06/04 to current
Used 666,809KB/ Unlimited
...a bit skewed seeing as how I was looking for stuff to download when I finally found a 3'x3' section of downtown houston that works with 4g.
Also drops as soon as I'm a few feet of my office. If I sit outside the building on the curb I get a 4g signal (haven't done a speed test). If I get within arms reach of the door...bam. Gone.
Kind of funny actually. Like someone f'ing with me and flipping the 4g switch in the places I'd want to use it.
If I keep the phone activated AND sprint gets the 4g actually working like the map says....Dan Hesse is going to personally txt me like, "doctah...wtf?"
