Unexpected gifts arriving for some who pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE

Case picture by Daniel SIf you're one of the people who pre-ordered the HTC EVO 4G LTE through Sprint, you might return home today to find a package from UPS containing an accessory for your phone.

Some have told G&E of a note inside the package that thanks you for your patience with Sprint during the US Customs/Apple debacle as welll as a gel case for your new phone.

It's not yet known if everyone is getting something, or if the accessories mentioned are all gel cases, but it's a pretty nice thing for Sprint to do considering that none of these delays were the carrier's fault.

Additionally, Daniel wrote that he took the case into a local Sprint store and was given the option of exchanging it for a different color.

If you got something different, or nothing, feel free to drop a line and let us know. I'll be interested to see whether other places that did pre-orders will do something similar for their customers.

Thanks to Jeff and Daniel (who provided the picture) who sent this in!

  • A friend in Norfolk, Va. received the EVO 4G LTE yesterday afternoon. He brought it by so I could show him how to get started and downloads some apps I knew he would like. This phone blew me away. It is thin and light and I’m in the camp that love the new EVO look and feel. Over Wifi I was getting 24 Mbps down and 16 Mbps up very close to what I get on my computers. My twin brother can’t wait to buy one so please keep us posted on pricing deals and availability. My EVO 4G contract ends in 6 months and can’t wait. This phone really rocks!!

  • I pre-ordered and received a body glove case with a kickstand – this case prevents us of EVO kickstand so will try and swap at a local store. Still think it is cool of sprint to kick in something free.

  • I received my free gel case today. I was not given any advance warning or tracking info. I did see on ISN that it was coming, so I knew it was coming. I don’t like the color that much, but the gel case I bought for the phone smells horrible, so I will use this until I get a hard case.

  • hi. I just got mine in the mail. Greatly appreciated gesture from Sprint, however I must say that the aqua blue is not my favorite color.

    Is anybody else going to try to switch it out once at their local sprint store?

  • I received my phone yesterday……then on my way to work grabbed a OtterBox case from the Sprint Corp store where the employees were shocked cause I had it already……got to work & found the gel case on my desk. Sprint is truly making a good effort out of a bad situation & made this week end GREATLY!!!!

  • I can confirm this. Got my EVO LTE yesterday, Gel cover today.

    I’m glad they did this because the phone is so thin I feel like I am going to drop it at any moment.
