    will a 3g phone be able to upgrade to a 4g phone or would I have to buy a new one?

    Once VZW makes 4G available to all a software update to your droid handset will take place allowing for the 4G service to work. As it stands now the droid is the only 4G capable phones that VZW has out. So, no worries

    do you have proof of this? all threads on this board, as well as other readings online have all stated that the DROID and all of VZW's curretn 3G lineup are NOT LTE compatible.

    My information comes from the Motorola support staff. I called for issue i had with a defective keyboard (peeling off as i opened the slider). As my new replacement was being taken care of by Motorola and i was still on the phone with him we had a little conversation about the droid. I was assured that the droid is indeed the only capable 4G phone that verizon currently has. (this came about because we were talking about the sprint 4G network)

    ^^ I wouldn't hold anything a Moto tech says to merit. LTE will require different functionality than a software update.

    I have not read anything that states the Droid is LTE ready!! That would be great if it were factual but need to see proof!!!

    They do have some devices that are in use in larger metropolitan areas. These devices are in use by VZW and partners of VZW for testing purposes. They have some devices that are already made for it such as MyFy (personal wifi) and we should start seeing these availiable to the masses around the middle of next year

    I think it's safe to assume that most of the misinformation being disseminated is by idiot VZ sales staff that will say anything to make a sale.

    By the time LTE rolls out, the Droid will be a dinosaur.
