I'm new to smartphones and am really excited about getting started with Ting and purchasing a used phone through this site.
Im almost sold on the HTC Evo 4g but am concerned about one detail. I understand that this phone uses wimax but not LTE. What does this mean for my service? Looking at Ting coverage, it looks like most of it is 4g LTE with only spots of 4g wimax. Does LTE serve down to Wimax phones? Is it a huge mistake to buy a Wimax phone? I won't want to be in the situation where 2-3 years from now my phone's system is phased out to the point that it is useless.
Anyone else want to weigh in on any other detail of the HTC Evo 4g? I've watched some reviews and it looks like it basically does what I want and I like the large display. I'll want to use GVoice/Groove to save some minutes/text usage. I won't need it much for games but I would enjoy using it to read/surf when I'm not on a computer.
