Going to call Sprint and demand 4g credit for the past 3 months
Seems like I am not the only one having issues with 4g on my Evo since that last update. As many are experiencing when you enable 4g it almost toast the phone and makes it drain battery and causes the phone to become on unusable because of the lag it creates.
It makes no sense to me that I am paying extra for a feature that I cannot use and so I will be calling tomorrow and will post an update to what is said.

rant, rant, rant, rant, rant, rant, rant, rant.....and.....rant, rant, rant...so....rant, rant, rant, rant, rant, dammit man!!
Merry Christmas!Thanked by:

I had the same problem on mine and I hard reset my device and that fixed the problem.

You might be preaching to the choir. They may give you some sort of credit on your account, but I doubt it’ll be for 3 months worth of 4G data charges. Carriers are growing less and less concerned about customer service.

I doubt that you will get a credit because 4g kills your battery, etc., when you have to pay the $10 even if you had no 4g at all.
The $10 is being explained that premier phones simply are used in a more data-centric way. Agree or disagree with that, but they aren't stating that $10 = 4G.

The $10 isn't for 4G, its for removing data caps.

So according to Sprint, you're NOT paying for 4G.

Try the hard reset, that seems to do the trick.
Not sure why anyone thinks the $10 is for 4G after 6 months...we've been aware of it since before the phone came out. I guess everything is relative...the $10 is relatively more expensive than what we used to pay but it is also relatively less expensive than what you would pay on a different carrier and NOT have an Evo.
I am no advocate for greed amongst corporations, but you really have to look at it from Sprint's point of view. The market is bearing that extra fee mainly because the other carriers out there are getting WAY more from their customers. I work for a company in an industry whose rates go up every single January and the major players are always matching each other's rate hikes...all the while the customers have no choice but to pay up.
This $10 per month charge is a pain, but certainly justifiable by Sprint. Seriously, if you don't like it go pay more for Verizon or AT&T.Thanked by:

in the end its the lawyers making gobbs of money while we sit on pennies.
at the same time your killing a carrier by lawyer fees, the settlement and endless litigation...
think verizon and att have outrageous prices? just imagine what sprint would do to again the "end user" aka consumer to balance the settlement and lawyer fees.
thats like ppl who scream to regulate companies and raise taxes on those "EVIL" corporations that are making "too much money" it ALWAYS gets passed down to the consumer...
so whats the benefit of attacking sprint via the law? NOTHING but higher rates and fees,a less quality of service,cuts in customer service, and more money for the lawyers...
sounds like a great way to "get em" eh?If you think i helped you, please click the Thanks button on the right

There are time corporations need to be checked because they can get a little out of control at times. But the whole class action suit over $10 per month is pushing it a little. I don't use any more data on my Evo than I did on my Pre, so it is a bit unfair. So I'm on the fence as you can tell. One things for sure, if I don't pay my bill the phone gets turned off!
