    Default Sold my EVO - best thing I ever did

    I got so sick and tired of all of the problems with the EVO and especially Sprint, that I sold the phone on eBay. I bought a T-Mobile G2X and cannot be happier. My battery last about 8 hours, I get anywhere between 8-10 Mbps versus .50 - 1 mbps on Sprint. I NEVER was able to find and stay connected to a 4G network even when I was standing inside a Sprint store.

    The EVO is a good phone but the network sucks. I find the G2X much more stable and it is a plain Android setup without any bloatware. More importantly, the network really supplies the fast speeds that they advertise. Very happy with my decision.

    Well I'm glad you found a carrier/phone combo that works for you. The G2X is a great phone.

    The funny thing is I surg a ton, download tunes, listen to podcasts, view movies, videos, etc and it NEVER skips, stalls or gives me that horrendous buffeting crap. The network is great. I highly recommend this type of phone for anyone who decries all of the bloatware that the majority of Android devices come pre-loaded with. Plain vanilla Android, for me at least, is the way to go.

    As for price, my wife was already on T-Mobile so adding a second phone was a snap. I was paying $100 per month with the all inclusive date plan and my wide was paying about $85. Now with the Family Plan we are paying less (combined) then were were under two separate contracts.

    Less than $200 for 3 lines. As far as bloat, that's why I root.

    Congrats to the op. With everything that sprint has done lately I'm pondering jumping ship for the sensation. I have been with sprint since last June and the service in my area has gotten worse by the day. My wife jumped to the iPhone on at&t and I'm floored by the speed and constant signal she gets.

    I personally love Sprint, good prices, have always had great customer service, and the 4G is plenty fast enough for a phone. Heck even my 3G in some areas goes up to 1.5mbps which is fast enough for me. I'm more for reliability, and I do like T-Mobile but at least here in PHX the reliability is terrible.

    All the adulation because someone changed phone & switched carrier, I was starting to think he got a high paying job overseas.

    Why would anybody pay for a used EVO? Does Sprint has better plan for people with non subsidized phones? Are there other usages for used EVO's?

    If someone wants an Evo, but isn't due for an upgrade or just doesn't want to be stuck on a contract and doesn't feel like spending $500 on a phone, they get a used one.... Big market out there for used phones, youd be surprised. Evo's in top condition go for 300+.

    They might want the evo and not be eligible for an upgrade. That way they don't have to pay an absurd amount of money.

    I bought my evo off Craigslist lol paid $200 still in box and plastic lol and to the op, the reason you can watch movies and all thatt good stuff without bufferring is because its a dual core device which makes it more stable because the processor is more powerful...

    That family plan will get pretty interesting when AT&T eats T-Mobile. You can forget about that unlimited data and you can forget about network speeds and performance. AT&T's network sucks. Ran from them to Sprint and haven't looked back. 4G coverage only works in parts of Atlanta, otherwise, I never drop calls like I did with AT&T. Wish you all the best though.

    Really? Hmmm... then I know what to do with mine after my next phone upgrade. Have mine in a ruggedized case with extended battery.
