EVO 4G Replacement Will Be EVO Shift or Samsung Epic 4G


Granted its not the most exciting news this week, but its good to know.  I spoke to a trusted source at Sprint who confirmed the Evo Shift or Samsung Epic will be the replacement for the Evo 4G which has hit End of Life status.  I asked him if the  Evo 3D was a possibility and he was told that it is not a comparable phone to the regular Evo.  Not really a surprise there.  So if your Evo is still under warranty and has a defect, you will be getting one of those two choices (at Sprints discretion of course).  He also stated this could be changed at a moments notice (again at Sprints discretion) If your not familiar with either jump the break and we give you a rundown of the specs for both.  He also said they have not determined what will replace the Kyocera Echo for sure.

Thanks Sprint guy!

  1. […] ads like I always do on a Sunday I came across this honey of a deal.  Target is offering the Sprint Epic 4G for $9 with contract.  Now this isn’t the Epic 4G Touch (I wish!) but it still is a sweet […]
