Re: 3G Speeds CDMA Only vs CDMA/LTE

I see. So the LTE is in 3G until LTE is turn on? For those not in the 4 cities, it is not a good idea at all to get the LTE.

@chong67

From my understanding if the LTE radio is turned on it will always search for the LTE signal especially since there probably isn't one around it will be searching all the time thus running the battery down. For the moment LTE is only in Atlanta. hard to believe they would select ATL first, they should've gone with NYC,LA, and CHI first. As for the topic of this thread doesn't seem like it makes a big difference, the whole garbage in garbage out concept should be applied.

Re: 3G Speeds CDMA Only vs CDMA/LTE

Of course. I remember when I stay at my parent house far out in the country, my 3D phone ran out of juice because its at 1x and roaming n roaming. Then in this case why should Sprint be selling LTE phone right now?

I really dont know how Sprint pick those 4 cities. ATL is not as widespread compare to Houston and LA. Widespread = sprawling

1X is basically totally useless,especially with how overloaded their network is. They probably picked ATL because it's a big commerce city but still. My bet stands that T-mobile will get LTE out over a large portion of it's population before sprint does.

Re: 3G Speeds CDMA Only vs CDMA/LTE

Who knows but you live in Atlanta so the LTE would be a worthwhile phone for you.

Re: 3G Speeds CDMA Only vs CDMA/LTE

i would think that the selection of first cities will usually be tied to the least costly to get online with the new technologies. My guess is the ATL network they have is probably the easiest and quickest to get some kind of decent sized LTE footprint up and rolling. Work some kinks out on moderate size base and then launch in biggest return to cost markets next. A lot of backhaul fiber building going on in these cities right now for all carriers almost.

Not that it is worth much but had to activate an EVO LTE yesterday and they told me that they are shooting for 7/15 in cities like Dallas
