    As a phone salesman, it seems that the Evo name doesn't hold that much significance anymore. It only seems to be positive to a very small percentage of HTC fans and that's it. It seems more likely that Sprint drops the name rather than shoving it into their One's name or on a separate unit.

    This seems to play out in my local Sprint store. Last time I was in to look at phones for my wife, not one employee carried the EVO LTE. They all had GS3 or Notes, and the sales girl we spoke to had no knowledge of the EVO to speak of. This speaks to both our subject matter, as well as the quality of her sales education IMHO. One should be knowledgeable about the entire lineup as a sales rep, instead of answering "I don't know much about that phone". I would think that a customized version specific to Sprint would at least be pushed by the staff in some small way. I wanted specific questions answered regarding call quality and 3G reception (no LTE in the foreseeable future here), and I went away with no more info than I went in with.

    If they were going to mess with it, they would have done it before posting this on their site.

    I say no, there's nothing on my Note 2 and there wasn't anything that I can think of on my Evo LTE.

    If it's on the sprint website, that pretty much settles the question whether or not the phone will stay the same through US carriers

    I hope HTC sticks to their guns with both Spring and Verizon. It worked for Samsung. Manufactures need to stand up to the carriers. I hate verizon. That "verizon" logo on the note 2 pisses me off.

    Here's your solution. I don't understand why people whine about things that don't decrease the phone function. Now bloatware, it eats up my memory and can't be removed without tampering with the basics of my phone. Lets complain about that.

    I agree. Not to mention Apple gets away with no carrier branding, why can't HTC? I really hope they keep this free of any Sprint branding on the case.

    (Someone said EVO LTE had none, there is a faint Sprint branding on the back but its barely noticeable)

    I agree. Bloatware is more bothersome than branding.

    Obviously, they aren't yet in that position with Verizon, who will (more than likely) insist on a DROID-branded version of the phone, to be launched later than The One so it seems "newer."
    Verizon in a nutshell.

    I don't think Sprint will. Look at the Galaxy Note II, no Sprint branding on their version. Then there is the LG Optimus G, looks just like the international version with no branding either. I'd be willing to bet this won't have branding either allowing HTC to keep the phone the way they designed it.

    With the HTC EVO Sales HTC might not have much of a choice, they didn't do too well at all. Sprint will probably get some type of evo offset.

    There's a good question ... Will *any* of the carriers get to modify things on the HTC One?

    As if this helps anything, it looks like the only hardware modification AT&T has done is put a small globe on the bottom of the HTC One's back.

    It would be cool to see carriers have there own carrier colors kinda, but itd also look ugly for Sprint and T-Mobile. Idont see Sprint messing up the design other than adding "Sprint" on the back or front. That goes for all the carriers also

    Does HTC have the ability/power/influence to keep the carriers from modifying the design?

    Never gonna happen. Remember the One is constructed from milled aluminum, it is a higher quality and more expensive material. You can't just crank out colors like Nokia does with the polycarbonate back...

    The sad reality is that they probably won't do anything to it, except for maybe slapping a logo on the back. I say sad because of all the carrier mods on all of the phones I've ever seen, Sprint does it right. They don't plaster their name everywhere. They don't lock everything down. With each iteration of phones they put less and less of their own apps on the device. Most importantly, they add functionality (see: kickstand, microSD slot, bigger battery, 3D*). I wish HTC would make all of their devices more EVO-like. Not only would everyone get to experience the joy of owning an EVO, but the world would probably be a better place.
    And don't forget the EVO LTE was the first of the One series to be of milled aluminum frame.

    He had a great thought though. Im sure later in the year they will release a color other than black and silver/grey.. Maybe even a ALL white frame like the EVO-LTE. That looked AMAZIN!

    I wish Sprint would make one change to it and add a microSD slot.
    And maybe a kickstand. The SD card is important. Not comfortable anymore with internal storage only
