    If you have a new droid now, will you have to upgrade to a new phone when Verizon releases its 4G?

    or will it be an on air update?

    I want to establish or confirm this before I upgrade to the latest droid.

    4G requires a different chip set, so you would need a new phone.

    You might as well buy a droid and get another one that's 4G in a year or two (you most likely wont have it within the next year, depending on where you live)

    No phone on Verizon will support 4g currently. You must wait till Q1 2011 for the 4g phones to come out.

    I don't think it'll take til Q1 2011 to see an LTE handset.... It will be Q4 2010 is my guess.

    The last official words that I've read is it isn't going to even start until first quarter 2011. Everything else, every link, and everything else is speculation and rumor.

    And it will take years to complete. If you live where I live you will get it in 2014.

    Here's a dumb question....What do you think the odds are that the first-gen LTE handsets will be able to seamlessly switch to 3G and offer as good of quality as 3G only handsets?

    I'd hate to have an AT&T-like device that is great around the house and lousy pretty much everywhere else.
