What countries will the EVO 4g LTE work? I'm traveling to Japan, Hong Kong and China soon and I'm just wondering.

Fairly certain that sprint phones don't work outside the us.

Wait doesn't the EVO have a hidden sim card slot?? I remember reading on it or saw it from the tear down they did. Could be wrong but about 90% sure. What I don't get is why these phones still don't come with a sim card slot. I for one travel quite a bit but always have to end up using my gf photon. I'll search and post the link if im correct.

I knew they worked in Canada and Puerto Rico but was hoping for the far east. I may just have to communicate via email/FB.

I know Japan networks use GSM, pretty sure China and HK are the same. With international roaming the EVO LTE should work, at least for voice calls and text. I was there a couple years ago with a Hero; it worked intermittently. Any time you have wifi available that should work too.

Bear in mind international roaming can get really expensive. Might want to look into getting a GSM based Sprint phone; a Sprint store may have specifics on how to do so. Also recommend you check into a prepaid phone on another network at least for calls and text.

Hope this helps; enjoy your trip!

Have used my evo 4g og in Israel- not cheap, but works fine, I think I had to set it up with Sprint the first to allow international roaming.

As kg4icg stated, i believe the EVO Design was the only EVO that had world capabilities. I wish Sprint offered more world phones.To my knowledge these are the other world phones on Sprint, the Photon and iPhone 4S.
