I'm able to replicate the problems everyone else is having with my own Evo... but only when it's removed from the skin case I bought with it (the black rubber/gel like material - silicone?).
For those of you with the problem, do you have your Evo in any sort of case? If not, it might be a simple workaround. Not that it really makes up for the issue in the first place, but as long as it's working, it's fine with me.
