I have a HTC EVO 3D 4G phone purchased from the sprint website July 2011. I haven't ben able to connect with 4G for 6 month or so, and was wondering if any other HTC 3D 4G owners are having the same problem. When switched to 4G, the phone will scan, connect and then disconnect. It does this over and over and just drains the battery. My contract is up in July 2013 and I will be moving on to another service provider if I can't get this resolved. Is it my phone or did the coverage change in my area? Thank you.
Our EVO 3D phones use WiMAX for 4G, which Sprint is abandoning in favor of LTE.
Thus, I seriously doubt that Sprint will spend the money to expand WiMAX coverage. At all. Ever. It has to be expensive paying for two 4G networks during the overlap period.
Confirmed----HTC EVO 3D users are screwed by Sprint. Sprint doesn't provide 4G coverage anymore for our phones. We paid $10 xtra a month for nothing.
Well, for those of us in the WiMAX coverage area, we will continue to get 4G service for some years. Those of you not in coverage areas are screwed, however. Hopefully the LTE network will cover more area.
