    Didn't recognize your hands without all the pink goop on them.

    My only hesitation is the embedded battery. Since I'll have to keep this thing for 2 years before my next upgrade, I'm wondering if the battery will hold up that long without pooping out. And, if it does **** out, what will it cost to have it replaced at a repair center, even if they can replace it. If that were to happen, am I protected by the Total Equipment Protection plan? It's not certain if my other choices will even be available on Sprint; the Note and the SG III. The EVO is a great device, but.... Ahhhh...decisions, decisions, decisions.
    See thats the concern I see with getting the new EVO. It doesnt have a removeable battery which would mean if the battery craps out then the whole phone is shot. Sprint loves to jerk its customers around with the TEP and I could see them telling a customer who's EVO 4G LTE battery crapped out that its considered "customer abuse" and they have to file a claim with Asurion and pay $100 to get a replacement phone.

    Serious question this time:
    Is there an SD slot? I thought I remember you saying there was at the launch event, but didn't see it in the leaked manual.
    Yes. The phone specs note it's upgradable to 32 MB. (a 64 should work too)

    This will be my first new phone since the Palm Pre...considered Windowsphone but ICS looks like it has some webos-ish ingredients. Is that the case?
    Matias Duarte the guy responsible for webOS is the brains behind ICS. I had a Pre for 2 years and got an Evo 3D in June and couldn't be happier. If your getting Android here's some fantastic reference material from milominderbinder. It has a section for webOS users. Good luck with your new toy!!

    Thanks. That is exactly what I am seeing and will be returning it. I can't afford to have signal issues like this during business travel use.

    Are u getting EVO LTE instead or should we wait?
    I'm going to keep my powder dry for a little while. Sure is tempting though.

    On the dropped wifi, I think people are also having dropped wifi on One X, so I'm not sure if it is totally a hardware issue, or partly a ICS problem. It almost seems like the Galaxy Nexus phone goes to sleep or something. I used Foxfi (on t-mobile) in place of the built in hotspot and it was better, but still dropped connections. I was 1/4 mile from a tower and the phone was in a window facing the tower and it was still dropping the wifi hotspot!

    Did you preorder it on Monday, or is having free phones magically appear a perk of being an Android god?

    If you add an SD card how does it look, is it SD2 or SDext? Can you put apps and data on the SD card or only media?

    How does it compare to the Galaxy S III? I know the specs but just how it feels and works, what phone do you think it is worth more to invest in? I need to upgrade from my OG Evo soon.

    Also... Does it blend?

    Wait, so I saw the picture you posted with the internal storage...

    I thought it had 16GB for internal storage? And then could be expanded to more?

    Calrification? :/

    Thanks, Phil!

    The available storage is always minus the system framework. They always allocated a certain amount that is deducted from the given specs...

    I've heard Sense 4.0 was "streamlined" to make it lighter... Any major changes. I actually like sense 3 on my 3D... What can I expect?

    I've never had a problem with Sprint, in that regard. I've had to replace a couple of devices. Once the store checks out the problem, they've replaced the devices on the spot. If you have a problem, take it to a Sprint store that has on-site repairs.

    Hey Phil, Can you give me the results of the following commands?
    Code:
    adb shell
    mount
    ls -l -r /dev/block
    I need this info for an upcoming project.

    Of course this is run from your desktop with adb installed and the device hooked to the computer.

    I wish HTC would advertise that as the Samsung GS3 promotes that it's upgradable to 64 GB.

    I counted 4 other people + myself asking what kind of 3G speeds you are pulling down and you have not answered yet. Are they that bad??
    Never had a phone on Sprint but I do like this phone.
