I wish I knew. Hopefully we find out soon. I heard that it might have a CDMA chipset but I can't remember where I heard that. If that is the case, I don't see this going to VZW with the devices they just announced. Who knows might be Sprint.

Been with T-Mobile for a little over one year and I couldn't be happier. Have the N1 and MyTouch 4G and live in a very hot HSPA+ area with sick speed. Saying that it is very obvious I want this new LG device on T-Mobile. Combine the speed of their network and the price of their plans to me there is no better network. Let's not forget all other carriers will be charging more $$$ for their 4G service. NOT T-Mobile.

I think the reason the phones are going to AT&T and Verizon are largely due to their size and how they run the promos. Both companies sell their top tiered phones on the cheap to gain customers, like $1 or BOGO; Sprint doesn't. So if you're a phone builder, who do you have the best chance with when it comes to sales?
Yes, I know the EVO went to Sprint last year, but Sprint was offering 4G, where no other carrier was. And for HTC to say they were 1st to 4G, in the US, probably was a big reason why Sprint got such a nice phone. Now that Sprint doesn't have the 4G advantage, what do they have that would entice a phone manufacture to want to release a top tier phone on them? At least T-Mobile is GSM making it easier for these builders to release a global phone with them.....

sorry bout that, i didnt realize it was optimus black. just considering though, LG has 3 cool phones: opt 2x, black, and revolution. i doubt 2 will go to a single carrier, so it looks like 1 of the big 4 will be left out. hopefully not Sprint. Let AT&T get left out.

I went over 1gb of data last month and didn't get throttled. It only happens at 5gb. I agree about your assessment of what is and what isn't 4G, but keep in mind that according to technical definition WIMAX and LTE aren't either (this is according to the official 3GPP definition of what 4G is).
If you're just talking about speed (which is what the carriers seem to be using to determine what they will call 4G) then all the carriers have it. I've seen 8mbps down/1.2mbps up on HSPA+. When I had my EVO the fastest I saw (in the same area of Chicago, one of the better WIMAX networks) was 6mbps down/1mbps up.
So all other things being equal if speed is what matters who cares what they call it?
Oh and my monthly bill is cheaper now than it was with Sprint. 2 MT4G's vs 2 EVO's (not in a WIMAX area). I don't go over 5gb. I'm on wifi most of the time.Kevin F.I.M.T.K. O'Quinn Esq.
