    The author of this post is 100% wrong. This is indeed a very major update. It will give the Nexus S 4G phone a massive performance boost. It will also fix every single major bug listed in the Sprint community forums. I should note, however, in areas where Sprint’s EVO 4G phone can’t get a 4G WiMAX signal the Nexus S 4G in its current state has no trouble at all.

    I meant that it’s not a new version of Android. But I can see how it came off. Edited.

    “in areas where Sprint’s EVO 4G phone can’t get a 4G WiMAX signal the Nexus S 4G in its current state has no trouble at all.”

    Really? I’ve not actually had that been the case for me. I have a NS 4G and have had pretty terrible connectivity all around but most notable amongst 4G and Wifi stuff. The gf has a EVO and I run side-by-side comparisons that show NS 4G with less connection signal + slower speeds.

    In the Houston,TX area by the way.

    We’ve got a complex group of highly trained super spies. Rest assured the update will be there. Just like the last two were that we scooped about a week ago. Thank you for visiting the site by the way, we hope you like it.

    Oh I do trust there will be an update… I was just curious where Mr. Rose got his info that the author of this post is wrong and that this will be a massive performance boost… not sure I trust that rumor. Thanks for the reply!

    When is ANDROID 2.3.3 or higher coming to the EPIC 4G?

  10. Mark Hearn says:

    We’ll do some digging on this. Thank you so much for visiting our site, hope you like it.

    I am so relieved. If not for this article I would have been returning my nexus s 4g for the evo 3d. Thanks!!

    I’ve had my Nexus S 4G side by side with an EVO 4G. In the notification bar the EVO 4G had the 4G with the exclamation point on the left side which indicates it’s scanning for a 4G signal but has not acquired one. My Nexus S 4G on the other hand had a 4G indicator with all bars lit up green. Using the Easyspeak test I get download speeds of at least 5mbps and upload speeds between 1.5mbps and 2mbps. On my home wifi I get download speeds of 17mbps with the Easyspeak test using my Nexus S 4G. I’ve not tested the EVO 4G download speeds on wifi, but it doesn’t seem to have any trouble getting a solid connection to wifi networks.

  16. Za7ch84 says:

    Nothing here (Houston,TX). :(

  17. Brian says:

    How confident are you in this? I’m just surprised that none of the other sites seem to be running with the news of an update. I’m going to keep typing *#*#checkin#*#* regardless.

  18. Erik says:

    Nothing here either! (southern California)

  19. Mark Hearn says:

    Very confident, however the document gives a four-day breakdown: 5%, 25%, 25% and 100%, it should most likely hit big tomorrow. Rest assured the update is set to happen. If we get hold of it sooner, we’ll post it here.

  20. Can’t wait.. been having problems where it’s dropping my wifi connection at the house.. have to actually delete connection and reconnect.

  21. mordyf says:

    Anything new on your end ?

  22. mordyf says:

    yes but there should be at least 1 person that gets it today, I have not heard of even 1.

  26. Silver6913 says:
