    Droid and 4G/LTE on Verizon

    So I've been doing research, and some people say the Droid X/Incredible/Droid 2 WILL support the new 4G/LTE network on Verizon. Other people say the opposite. Can I get a straight answer? I mean I know all about how the current Droids as well as all of Verizon's phones have only a CDMA Rev. A antenna, which supposedly only works with 3G, but do we KNOW that for sure? Maybe Verizon is developing a 4G network compatable with our current antennas?

    I also read somewhere that on the Droid Incredible, there's an option to enable 4G........huh?

    Anyway, can we say with absolute certainty that our beloved Droids will become outdated when the 4G network rolls out in the coming years? Because I would really appreciate being able to tether and call at the same time!

    Uh I don't know where you heard that but that is absolutely wrong. The Droids that are out now are in no way compatible with LTE. You'll have to get a new phone if you wish to utilize the LTE network on your phone.

    I think the 4g network is coming sooner than years. It is rumored that those devices will be released end of this year or early next year.

    yup.

    its mostly a hardware limitation so unless when they built all teh phones out they put something in them to work with LTE, then its not gonna be able to use the signal.

    So we are sure the current Droids don't have a dormant LTE antenna in them? And actually I heard that the first of Verizon's official 4G phones come out Black Friday!

    I'd bet anything that NONE of them have it. Seriously, they would have touted it as one of the features of the phone if it actually had the radio in it. If you were a manufacturer, would you pay extra money to put a radio in a phone then not advertise it?

    No, it will NOT work. LTE is a type of signal, like gsm or cdma.

    And that option was prob left over from the evo. I mean, think about it. they are almost identical. Besides screen size and the addition of a wimax radio.
