Rumor or truth about the evo?

Rumor or truth about the evo?

Ok,Ok , Ok !!!!! Call me a  geek what ever buT I am excited about the sprint evo .Recently , I came on here and ask a Sprint Specialist when will they update my hero to 2.1  -  which I just did today -- and when is the evo coming out. The sprint specialist told me its coming out in mid April and I SAID ARE YOU SURE AND HE SAID YES . OMG I do not know if this is true or not but I got the news right here from the horse's mouth. So my point is if the phone is coming out in mid April why arent there any advertisments ; I guess it does not matter because  I had my HERO FOR A MONTH or two before they started to advertise the phone . So fingers cross hoping this news is true....

To answer your guess question I am not a professional . I am depending on those that work for sprint to give me accurate information. Now I TALKED TO CUSTOMER SERVICE LIKE ANYONE CAN DO . and the guy took step by step to update my phone to 2.1 . Nothing really happen  ; he also informed me 2.1 supposed to be updated tommorrow...... APRIL 9th so call and find out.

Also like I said it took sprint a month  or so to even put commericals out for sprint Hero .

Dont believe anything you here from Sprint employees until it's been announced in a press release

Journeyman

We've been told that EVO 4G will be available this summer - no date has been confirmed or announced at this time.      The HTC Hero 2.1 is still targeted for early 2Q release which to me means April/May timeframe.

Journeyman

That's a smart move considering the Incredible is due out supposely at the end of the month and surely the Desire wont be too far out either. Just hope it pans out.

Journeyman

Hope those rumors are truth, since im tired of chating and reading posts from sprint employees, that none of them coincide, which makes me think they are just laughing at us...but well right now i dont even know why sprint came out with the announcement of the evo at march 23rd if the released would be 3 month ago, not even a comersial, no advertising , honestly i think the release is way far from now, although Sprint has never been good at advertising and that's something they really need to work on. (just look the impact of the Droid in the market and its simple ""Verizon droid does have the best commercials""" as i read somewhere.

I want to know when you or hwo did you update your Hero to 2.1 ? No update was sent out ... so ? & they said summer for the Evo so April is not right . Or doesn't sound right to me . People get overly excited and lose common sense so don't believe everything you hear . When you hear or see Sprint's words in qoutes that it's official then jump up and down . I mean phone blogs and etc even specualte as soon as they hear things . They will have the title of an article saying something is confirmed and then when you read it , it says things like MAYBE and NOT OFFICIAL . So look into what you hear or read before posting or anything like that . That's how people get confused . But let's hope it does come out early .

Careful Izzy, there are two questions/confusions in that article.  I believe she/he is talking about the release of the Evo, not the release of Android 2.1 (which sounds to me like she/he already got it?).  If you are confirming that the Evo will be released EARLY 2Q, 2010, then that is news.  You better clarify.

When I just logged into Sprint there was an advertisement for the EVO first 4G phone in America. However when I go back to the site it doesn't come up now.

Now it just came up. Summer 2010.

What's your point ? It's not always going to be the same thing up everytime you log in . The website has been like that since idk when . Did you think that meant something ? Cause I just logged in and it showed it . You can keep going back to the home page and it will be something diff most of the time . It's just an add they have and it shows diff things for what they have .

Well Richard,

My point was I saw an add while logging on and couldn't get back to it. Then I did and so I posted what it said. I understand how banner adds work, I just couldn't get that particular add to pop back up.

Who is Richard ?

And sometimes it acts funny . Like it will log me out after I was already logged and then say my info is wrong . So I give it a minute and it acts normal again so idk . Wonder if it has something to do with the new look they are going to put on it .

Journeyman

First and foremost , I talked to a sprint specialist. So  if he was a specialist than I think he may have a little more insight than you. Second, I called customer service today just to verify about the sprint evo coming out just to make sure  people are giving the answer early summer .I also asked about update on Hero 2.1 and he just gave me directions in updating my Hero ; I have not seen any differences but will try to update tommorrow since Sprint 2.1 FOR THE hero phones suppose to be updated on the 9TH; that information was given by sprint customer service .So unless they are un trained , or open their mouths to soon ; I think I believe them before I believe someone thats not even working for sprint.
