I am currently using my HTC 4G EVO as a hotspot to my notebook computer at work. I am in a metal building at LAX. The signal always flucuates and at times it is almost impossible to get any type of speed on the internet.

I have a couple of questions.

Are there any Sprint cellphones that have a reputation for better reception than the HTC 4G EVO that I could try?

Would a Sprint Hotspot device give better reception than a cellphone? I'm trying to figure out if it would be worth trying one of those.

I just got done trying a Clear Hotspot Device and T-Mobile Springboard and got no bars at all in this building so I may be lucky that Sprint is as good as it is.

Any advice would be appreciated.
