While many of you have expressed dissatisfaction at many of Sprint's recent cutbacks, most notably the loss of Premier status and early upgrades, this doesn't necessarily mean that you have to give up the HTC EVO 3D all together. Indeed, if you are in the position of wanting to give up Sprint, but not wanting to let go of that 3D goodness, listen up.
Developer Max_Pain has created quite the helpful (and detailed) tutorial that can help you get your EVO 3D activated and fully functioning on the Metro PCS network. I should also note that these instructions are based off of older instructions for the EVO 4G, so if you are still rocking the OG EVO, you can also give this a shot. Just be forewarned that this process is quite complicated and involves downloading CDMA Workshop and QPST on your Windows PC, flashing PRLs, and knowing how to follow precise directions and not freak out when you run into driver errors. Therefore, this is probably for advanced users only.
However, if the prospect of a $40 unlimited plan is tempting, and as long as you don't care about losing 4G, this might be just the thing you're looking for. Unfortunately, I can't try this out myself, since I'm not in a Metro PCS coverage area. I am also relatively happy with my Sprint service so far.
If you decide to take the plunge and jump ship to Metro PCS, be sure to let us know how it went for you, and how your service compares to Sprint.[xda-developers]
