I bought my EVO in December and before I bought it I went in to the local Sprint store and asked an employee when 4G would be in Spokane. He said March. I asked him if he was positive and he said absolutely. I was going to wait to buy a 4G to make sure I got the latest model and didn't pay $10/month for nothing, but I figured 2-3 months wasn't a long wait. Well that SOB straight out lied to me, but I am not really surprised. I wish there was a map or website that provided this information because you can't trust anyone from Sprint to tell you the truth.

From what I have read, Clear has been putting up towers in "rural" areas to make sure they comply with goverment regulations. They are popping up in smaller cities, even though they are not listed on Sprint's list of 4G service areas. If you use Sensorly and Clear.com, you will get a good idea of where 4G coverage is located, even if it is not listed on Sprint.
They just added 4G to a tower near my house, but it is not on any of Sprints 4G lists.

Yeah, I was told in January when I got my EVO that Dayton, OH was going to be getting 4g "very soon" the district Sprint rep had been in and told everyone that it was in the works. Well it's almost April and so far, no 4G or even a mention of when in my area.

Because of this thread I downloaded the Sensorly app and found I have 4G in my little town in Oshkosh, WI! Yeah way the eff out here in the middle of nowhere! And it's on no lists, and it works! God I love Android CentralSamsung Instinct > Palm Pre > HTC EVO > Evo 3D > Samsung GSIII on VZW

Sensorly is updated from user data. If you are sending info through the sensorly app, and are on 4G, it will report that there is 4G coverage. I like it because it is accurate, based on people actually using 4G service. I am in Iowa, and there is no where that says that Iowa has any 4G coverage. However, according to sensorly, there is a 4G signal in some areas.
I know because i can get 4G at my home, but not at my workplace. The only place this shows up is on the sensorly map.

Sensorly uses the on phone app to track 4G coverage, meaning when you connect to 4G, the app locates your position and updates the map. This can lead to false info when sprint is intermittently turning on and off towers while testing and someone connects while its on for a short amount of time.
That being said, lets move this to the sprint forum because it isnt really anything to do with the evoSome say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"
