lol it amazes me how many people consistently repost the exact same information over and over, or start new threads without using the search feature. Yet that happens on every forum. You would think the Sprint admin's would be more worried about the clutter and repost of "official" announcements then the few posts they have already deleted because THEY chose they were not useful lol. I come here for entertainment anymore..
LOL and it amazes me how many people consistently complain about an occasion repost, it's not that often of over and over and if they do, big deal. Some people are always a little "behind" on the news and posts and some are just dorks, gotta love 'em. I'm glad Sprint's admin's don't constantly police over petty occasional reposts. And a repost like that is nice reading again for us that our very excited about receiving our EVO 4g LTE and do not like Apple. Sprint customer since 2000 and happy to read anything negative about Apple and NOT Sprint .
I wish they would just confirm that it is actually the LTE that is cleared. This limbo stuff is irritating. Fortunately if it is the LTE I can imagine that we would start seeing these phones this week?
I simply do not believe that our phone has made it through customs. I mean surely with all the terrible, awful publicity that Sprint received about their slow response back on the 15th they would not take this long to get an official announcement out about the phone making it through customs. Right Sprint? They would have said something one way or the other by now, I am sure of it.
