Re: Sprint's EVO 4G

I had ordered Zagg screen protectors and removed it today. I just can't get used to the tacky feel after using the screen for a day bare. Like Kevin I'm going with the Boxwave ones and have a 3 pack on the way. Yeah, you'll find the Boxwave ones are not tacky at all. I put on a Zagg IS for my mom's...

Re: Sprint's EVO 4G

I got the one without the holster. It looks quite a bit different from that one so it might be based on a different brand. It snaps together from the front and the back of the phone, rather then in the middle.

Re: Sprint's EVO 4G

Kevin, a couple of quick questions. The screen is glass, isn't it? I'm curious if I'll need to pick up some screen protectors or if they're unnecessary. I've been spoiled by my iPhone 3G, and I'm hoping that I'll have a similar experience with the EVO. Also, how does the screen handle fingerprints?...

Re: Sprint's EVO 4G

I picked up my EVO today before work but haven't been able to spend much time with it. So far it's been really great. The size really stands out, what with the screen taking up nearly all of the front. Best Buy threw in a free bluetooth headset, which was unexpected. Compared to my Instinct, the EVO...

Got the call from Best Buy today saying they will have my EVO at the store on Friday. I was a little worried that I wouldn't be in the first batch.

Re: Sprint's EVO 4G

They are charging an EXTRA $10 a month for data on top of the normal $30 because 'with the large screen, users will be using more data'. Yeah, that sucks. I would prefer that it be based on 4G availability or something. However, even with the $10 extra, it is still a cheaper plan than both AT&T...

Re: Sprint's EVO 4G

Walked out of Best Buy with a pre-order a few days ago. I've had an Instinct for two years now and it's past time I got an upgrade. I never wanted a physical keyboard and the Hero hardware seemed pretty underwhelming to me, so I had been waiting for something better. The EVO looks pretty slick. Hope...

Re: dymt reloaded

The keyboard on my daughter's desktop PC suffered exactly the same fate a couple of months ago. Leaving it sitting on top of one of the heat vents overnight dried it out and restored it to working order. I thought about trying that, but for $11 a new keyboard seemed like the best deal. Especially s...

I just bought new laptop (dm3-1035dx) in December. Overall I've been very happy with HP,...
