Absolutely love this phone, had it for about 10 months now I think. Stock battery lasts about a day. I got a high capacity one for $20, now lasts at least two days with moderate use and three days with light use. For $99 or less, you can't beat this...
No it does not. IIRC, the Triumph is the last smart phone that works on the grandfathered phones. Those either work great, or don't work at all. Had one that was a dud, replaced it with a new one after lots of convincing, and it works fine. Screen isn't that great. Have a HTC One V from the $43 sale a few months back that has an outstanding screen, Beats audio but haven't activated it b/c of the grandfathered plan. Love that little HTC as an mp3/youtube player.
OP deal above sounds like it needs rooted to be a great phone. Just make sure to keep it on airplane mode when not in use. That mode works wonders.
Battery sucks on the earlier EVO. I see 1% drain per 30 second of use, how sad is it. New phone can only get worst since it's HTC
I got two Evo 4Gs for $38 each from Cowboom for two of my kids for Christmas. They eat batteries but extra batteries are less than $4 shipped and stand alone chargers are $3 shipped from China. You can add a micro USB cord for $1 so you can charge the phone and kindles and whatever while charging an extra battery for swap out.
It is a steal for $90, believe me. I had played with this thing for a month, rooted, unlocked, etc.
Extremely stable on Harmonia ROM, as other user had mentioned.
Hotspot wifi alone makes it worth it.
Much better than iPod touch and GPS should work even without cell service. My oldest kid can get turn by turn directions on his Evo 4G with no cell service. Topo map app is $10.
