4G in Jacksonville, Florida?
Anyone already have an EVO in Jacksonville , Florida ?
The reason I am asking is to see if they have gotten any 4G coverage yet since the area is suppose to have the coverage by the the end of June. I am just curious. Cheers and thanks...............

oh cool your from jax! I always wanted to post on forums to see if anyone is from where I live. I live on the westside close to OP. I was planning on preordering at best buy but was a day late so I plan on calling telesales since I have to change my plan and get a discount anyways. for some reason, since this is jax I don't think a lot of people know about the evo. I don't expect sales to be high.
uh I don't have the evo but I believe that 4g is supposeed to light up soon from jax, miami, orlando, tampa, and to clearwater but from what I understand its not until fall.
ps jax beaches are just ok.
Yeah I live in O P ... but I work on the northside. This is what I am going on
Clearwire and Sprint have announced that 20 more US cities will have WiMAX coverage (known as CLEAR from Clearwire or Sprint 4G from Sprint) this summer!
The following new markets will be graced with WiMAX by summer's end:
•Kansas City, Kansas
•St. Louis, MO
•Salt Lake City, UT
•Grand Rapids, Michigan
•Yakima and the Tri-Cities area (Kennewick, Pasco and Richland), Washington
Both CLEAR and Sprint (who use the same WiMAX network) will offer 4G service in all of the above markets within the next few months, and Comcast and Time Warner Cable, who re-sell the service in some select cities, are expected to follow suit in some markets.
No launch dates have been announced for CLEAR or Sprint, but stay tuned here at 4Ginfo for official launch information as it becomes available!
Testing has to be going on at some point.... We'll see....

There is 4G at the beaches, on the SouthSide, San Marco, Manadarin, OP, Downtown and northside, that i have seen thus far. Pretty much everywhere i have been, there was a 4G base station close enough to give me 4G signal.
Also, i clocked the 4G WiMax network at 10mbps late last night. I usually see between 3mbps and 6mbps during the day.
Hope this helps. This phone RAWKS. I'm totally amazed with this phone and the new network.

Hey, I read that you guys are up in Jax with your phones and it sounds like the 4g network is running pretty great. My question is with the addition of 4g to Jax, has the voice coverage improved alongside of it? I live in Jax to go to school there, and I'm seriously considering switching to sprint to get the EVO, but I keep hearing about issues with losing signal in many places, dropping calls, missing calls, and not getting voicemails at the right time. Are you having any of those issues now? Would you say the coverage is good in most places now? and what areas would you say tend to give you the most trouble? I live near 32256 and attend shands hospital often for school. If you are around those areas, how would you say your coverage is? Sorry for all the questions, but I just want to be sure I switch to the right service. Whats the point of having an amazing device like the EVO if you can't even get good coverage. TIA!

I don't know which provider you use now but Sprint is aggressively priced compared to other providers. You can use unlimited data and free mobile-to-mobile calling applies to all providers, not just Sprint-to-Sprint.
If it makes any difference, the only other cell provider I would ever consider is Verizon and, even then, Sprint would have to really tick me off to make me ever consider switching. My 7 year experience with Sprint has been extremely positive.
Hope that helps.

According to Sprints web site
4G is not supposed to be here (Jax) yet. I live in Jax Beach and my phone is in perpetual "scanning" mode when I turn on 4G. I signed up to be notified when it is available in Jax. As for 3G coverage - seems to be solid down here. Just moved from Rochester, NY. Coverage is sketchy once you leave the city up there.
Love the phone, hate the battery life. If I could just get through a day, I would be happy. What's the point of wireless if you're constantly dragging your cords around and having to remember to plug in whenever possible? What's the point of all the cool features if, by turning them on, your phone dies in a hurry? My daughter already defected to the new BB cuz she hated her Evo...
