According to Sprint, ICS should be released to the EVO 3D on June 16th. I have a feeling that they will postpone the update.

So who thinks ICS will be released on time according to what Sprint said?

I would need a rom that is as smooth as stock and that FULLY WORKS. I need my phone to work because I am a really busy college student (that needs a vacation haha).

MeanRom ICS is as smooth and smoother than the stock rom and is fully functional

I have read this on several forums. Still no one has provided any sources. When did Sprint announce this? Where?

They had a video they had about a month back or so. It was in interview and they were talking about sprint and virgin mobile. They were saying that virgin mobile was getting the Evo 3D (I forgot what they were going to name it) and they also said that ICS was being released to Evo 3D's in the US and it was going to be running sense 3.6. I dont remember where I found the source but I do remember a few of the things that they said in the interview. Also I am not bull ting this or spreading "rumors" this was said by Sprint.

MeanROM ICS works great but for me at least, it's is a total battery KILLER. While the standby time is fine, if I'm actually using the phone l get AT MOST 3 hours of battery life... and if I'm in an area with marginal signal I might as well short the battery terminals together for all the battery life I get. (No tweaks, themes, or other funky stuff installed.) On a Gingerbread ROM (I'm using CleanROM, haven't tried MeanROM GB) with exactly the same settings and apps installed I get AT LEAST double the battery life, usually much more than that.

I don't know if the terrible battery life is endemic to ICS or not (couldn't get CleanROM ICS to work) but my advice would be that unless you have a lot of time available to try this and that and see what works for you, stay with GB until an official ICS release comes out. In my personal experience, the extra features of ICS haven't been worth the trouble - though of course others may get better mileage.

I would root my phone but if we are getting ICS in a few days (or if sprint decided to be a-holes and release it later) then I might as well wait also I am really busy which means my phone has to be always working. My upgrade is in 2 months and i'm getting the Galaxy S III. Cant wait :D

S3 is the phone of all phones.

I'm about to throw in the towel and root ICS if it doesn't come out this month. But if what was said is true and is a battery killer I'm not sure it's worth it. I use it for work and my battery is terrible already.
