    I know Verizon's LTE network is gonna start rolling out late this year into the next. I know that 3G phones will work on the network but will they have the LTE/4G speeds?

    Don't believe so. Think the radio speed of the phone itself locks the speed level and caps it to 3G. I believe 4G also allows data and talk at the same time.

    Yea theres no way verizon would allow their 3g device to work on a 4g network. theyre gonna make people buy the 4g phone to utilize the 4g network.

    Sprint does not have a 4G network, their supposed 4G network is nothing more than an enhanced 3G network that hardly has any coverage areas. And when 4G goes full steam ahead, trust me these carriers will charge you for that extra bandwidth that you will be using on a monthly basis, if you think they won't, I suggest you crawl out under that rock.

    well, the 4g phone they are hypeing like crazy, the HTC EVO, is a 4G phone, and all things point to a May release..I assume they will charge more for their "4G" network, and I am sure the phone will go for a higher than usual price as well..

    The phone is a 4G phone that also works in 3G networks, since there are no real 4G networks up yet, it's another hyped up ploy by Sprint to get some customers. There is a Youtube video on this phone, and listen real close to what the guy is saying.

    well, I guess only time will tell if it is real or not, but, I agree, Sprint needs customers and revenue badly.
    I like the 4.3 inch screen on the EVO, but, I dont think I want to pay more for it that I would for an Incredible..I doubt the Sprint phone will go for less than $399, with a 2 year plan, plus, I bet they charge more for airtime with that phone than they normally do..

    if anyone cares, 3g is on 800mhz and higher, the 4g is gonna be in 700mhz spectrum, means different radios and antennas, also different wave progation (building pentration)

    So is it safe to say that I shouldn't worry about 4G if I sign another 2 year contract?
