    Around a month ago i read that there were 4G sim cards but after checking the specs for the current 4G modems it seems that none use or are capable of using sim cards so my question is would any of the 4 future 4G phones are going to have sim cards pre-installed and going to be world capable?

    The LTE USB modems do have SIM cards. Yes, the phones will be global :)

    If they're 4G, they have a slot for the 4G LTE SIM card slot.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you worried about whether or not they'll have SIM cards? Are you intending to do something with the SIM cards?

    But LTE isn't everywhere and it will default to 3G CDMA in those cases. So the "global" LTE phones aren't truly global.

    He does not care about that....Just if he can use a sim in Mexico, Which is Yes.

    They are global, just not LTE. Which has little to do if they are global devices or not.

    4G phones do have sims. But the question is, will the sim be deep inside of the phone, which will require to take the phone apart. Verizon doesn't like it when you use their phone on different networks.

    I don't really understand the whole sim thing, but how do you know you can pop in a 3G sim and have it work? It seems to me it's only go to work in global markets with LTE.

    The devices have to be backward compatible, The 3g devices still work on 1X and EVDO.

    Im not really interested in popping a 3G sim card while im in mexico i only wanted to know if the phone would be able to make and receive calls and use data while being in mexico since right know i use the OG DROID and is horrible ill probably be a mile away from the border and i cant make calls nor surf the web. So if one of the 4G phones has a sim card i could easily switch form cdma to global and have no problems and still use 4G in the states.
