    This may be a repost, but I thought it was interested since so many people were complaining about having to pay 4g prices, without having 4g coverage in their areas.

    So what do YOU think?

    Angry Sprint customers who pay a monthly premium for 4G service and who shelled out big bucks for the EVO 4G and Epic 4G -- even though they don’t get 4G service -- may finally get some vindication from a class action lawsuit filed September 30 in Southern California.

    Sprint rolled out the 4G phones “with great fanfare” this summer as the first and only phones able to access wireless 4G from a national carrier. According to the Sprint 4G class action lawsuit, however, Sprint’s 4G coverage is limited to only 53 markets in 22 states, and many of these markets are not even located in major urban areas. In California, for example, Sprint only offers 4G service in the cities of Merced, Modesto, Stockton and Visalia. Major California areas such as Los Angeles and San Francisco have been promised 4G access “in the near future” by Sprint, but no specific California 4G rollout dates have been made public. Other major urban such as San Diego and Sacramento have no prospect of having Sprint 4G access any time in the near future.

    On top of having to pay premium prices for a 4G phone that doesn’t get 4G service, these customers are also required to purchase Sprint’s “Everything Data” plan and pay an additional $10 a month for 4G service -- which they’re not even getting.

    The Sprint 4G class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of all individuals or entities who purchased, leased or otherwise acquired 4G wireless phones from Sprint and were billed for Premium Data charges or other charges specific to 4G phones but did not receive 4G service starting May 2010 to the present. It also includes a subclass of individuals and entities that reside in California and were billed for the $10 Premium Charge at issue during the relevant time period.

    Stupid... It is a MOBILE phone. You are paying for the ability to use the service whenever you are in a covered area. You know when you bought the phone if your area had coverage. It isn't like the EVO is the only phone Sprint sells.

    That's a great point. If I didn't care so much about 4G or didn't have 4G in my area, I'd just get a phone that didn't have the capability.

    Sprint didn't force him at gunpoint to buy the Evo. He can read a coverage map so there is no reason for not knowing his area wasn't covered. This lawsuit wont get far. Suing Verizon for breaking a upgrade contract because of a outdated 3g iphone sounds more reasonable.

    My aunt has the evo, and just 2 weeks ago 4G coverage flashed on for her.

    My only issue is that in speedtest results, my verizon 3G is faster than her sprint 4G, especially in upload speeds, and my 3G speed in the house is total crap!!!

    While I agree that people who do not have 4G service while at home could go to a 4G area and use it, the fact that Sprit required people to pay for 4G service to buy the phone is the real reason this lawsuit even exists. If the 4G service was an option for owners of the phone rather than a requirement I would call this lawsuit frivolous, but that's not the case.

    "You know it, I know it, frakin' courts know it, and Sprint shoulda frakin' better known better. I mean that people's money, man, they ain't have no sense of humor about that crap. You know what I'm saying?"
