    "is that an iphone?" --- nope its an evo
    "whats that? --- its a new phone from htc

    :: person is confused how its not an iphone::

    "what's your carrier" --- sprint love them

    "I like the screen on yours better."
    "Is that like the droid?"
    "Can you talk on it?"
    "Is that an mp3 player?"
    "I can read that!"

    Most people aren't looking beyond the size of the screen.

    Pretty much

    I was reading comments on Engadget, the one about the Sprint-T-mobile merger. One comment was:

    "Damn, I haven't seen this many levels of fanboyism for something medicore since Firefly. I think all of you must love Sprint just because it's unpopular."

    Some people just can't stand Sprint.

    Sprint has to do better job of commercials for it, and show them more frequent. And HTC has to get more build and get them out the door, both companies are loosing here.

    etc etc. I do also get the sprint hate. I haven't had any problems with them yet and I love their plan with the Evo.

    hahahah.

    Once i don't have an evo yet but when i tell someone i am on sprint they sometimes scoff, until i tell them how much i pay and what i get then they never believe me.

    Then i show them.


    Then some sign up.

    I've signed 5 friends with Sprint (and got my referral bonus with all of them). If they are living in the NYC area i have no resignations about Sprint at all.

    BINGO! Whipped out my EVO on vacation, guy excitedly says ' is that the new iphone?' I said no it's the new EVO. He's says, 'oh' and literally turns his back and begins taking too someone else. Lol

    Ditto on the standard reaction about Sprint. I don't get it. Out of 85 people at my office, I am the ONLY one using Sprint (I know because I'm the IT guy and everyone goes through me to set up the email on their phones and get reimbursed for their plans). It's crazy. They'd rather get some limited data plan on Verizon or AT&T for a lot more money, I guess.

    My wife is not impressed at all (of course she is also not impressed by anything electronic)

    My parents were impressed with what it could do though, but of course they have no smartphone experience, so they're easy to impress.

    "That thing is huge"
    "It's so big I can't fit it in my hands"
    "Is that the new iphone?" (When far away)
    "How's sprints service?"

    Oh and I often find myself saying, "It's the 4g phone, but there is no 4g near us currently".
