    Default Is there a list of when 4G will be available in certain areas??

    Just got my EGO three week ago, Sprint claims my area will be 4G by the end of the month , a few friends said they've been saying this for months. I'm in Buffalo, NY if that helps at all?

    I heard that clear was out of money and that there would be no more wimax areas added any time soon. Source a best buy employee.

    I use the sensorly app from the market
    Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

    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.

    I can tell you this much, that map is not correct, i live in Wichita, Kansas and i know we don't have 4G here, even Sprint told me the only place in Kansas that has it is Kansas City (Overland Park) and they don't have a time table when we will get it here. I don't know where they are getting that information at but it needs updated.

    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.

    No, that doesn't help but it isn't right. Says there is 4G in Spokane, WA and i can tell you that's BS. It also says there is 4G in a small resort town called Coeur d' Alene, ID which is close to Spokane and that's BS too. Not your fault and thanks for the try but that map is useless.

    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.

    I believe we have been swindled by unscrupulous Sprint sales personell.

    We just got 4G this week here in Brunswick, Georgia, so I highly doubt they aren't adding more markets.

    Just found 4G in downtown San Diego, which is new. Also the Sensorly maps indicate that portions of the South Bay, Kearny Mesa, and UTC/La Jolla have 4G coverage.

    I think this happens quite a bit. I would guess most Sprint employees have no idea when 4G coverage will come to their areas. I'm sure there is talk at Sprint stores and at Sprint affiliated retailers, but most likely there are very few people who actually know where 4G coverage is going next. And the people who know this information probably do not work with the consumer.

    I'm absolutely shocked and insulted that Rochester and Syracuse have 4G but Buffalo, which is way bigger and has more around doesn't have 4G, so lame!

    Dude my town is tiny. We got it this week. It's not about size. They're probably just Dolphins or Patriots fans. You guys are never gonna get it.

    We don't have 4G in Oshkosh.....do we? I just attempted to turn my radio on, and didn't get anything from within the City Center.

    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 evo
    Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

    I've had Sprint 4G twice in Fort Myers. Even did a Speedtest. Got 5Mbps+ down. After a while, it disconnects. I heard they are working on it. Seems like it shouldn't take so long. It's been over a week since the first time I got it here.
