The new HTC EVO LTE is right around the corner and the reviews are mixed! Sure the specs on the phone are amazing but it seems that there are antenna challenges that just about kill any positive comments about the new phone. As an owner of an HTC EVO 4G (the original) I can tell you that I have never really been able to take advantage of its WIMAX 4G service. I went with Sprint because of the plan they offered… at the time it worked great for my needs. I do not believe that my needs have changed yet I feel like the service I am getting has, or more to the point my coverage has gotten worse.

Some HTC Sense devices found to contain security vulnerability

Source: HTC users, take note: a new security flaw has been found in some Sense-enabled handsets that allows apps with Internet permissions to gain some sensitive data on your handset that’s being collected by an HTC logging app. According to the folks at Android Police, newer HTC phones running Sense (like the ThunderBolt and EVO 3D) include an app called HTCLoggers that collects data like phone numbers in your call log, email addresses, and GPS location info and then sends all of that back to HTC.

The problem is that HTC’s app is built in such a way that any other app that requests Internet access could gain access to the data inside HTC’s logs....

Visual Voicemail (VVM) not working on your EVO?

(SOLVED) Read On… So I realized this past week that I was not getting my Visual Voicemail at all but instead I was getting a TEXT telling me to call my voice mail. Owning and paying for an EVO you expect things to work. I do not get that many messages so you can see why it took me a while to figure out there was a problem. I started to think that this was happening because of the Android Gingerbread update to my EVO. So the first thing that I do is I start checking the Internet for posts and articles indicating the same issue. So many were found but they all said the same thing. Go into your VVM on your phone. Press MENU… Compose Where it lists To: activate@vvm.sprint.com then record. Hit Stop and then Send. Then I wait for the messages to flood in… both of...
