    Question...
    Will verizon 4g service only be available for new phones or will old phones be available to access the service?

    Verizon currently does not have a phone that is capable of 4G. Current phones will not be able to use the 4G system.

    The LTE phones will be out in February '11 which will do 4G/3G/1X but the current models lack the hardware that LTE requires.

    No. Its a different SIM for LTE and the current phones' hardware isn't compatible.
