    I could be wrong, but I haven't heard of the Note 3 being re-released with spark. The s4 is. If it does, I'm getting it. It's seriously the only thing lacking on the Sprint Note 3.

    Maybe next week Samsung will announce it at the conference.
    I can't pull the trigger unless Note 3 has "SPARK".

    The note 3 isn't a triband phone.

    A sprint rep informed me the Note 3 will have "Spark" not that his word is the final say so but i'm sure he would know what devices are getting "spark"

    Note 3 is only single band LTE so it is not Spark capable, Now the Samsung Galaxy Mega on Sprint is Spark ready.

    Isn't the global version of the note 3 tri-band?

    It's possible a new batch of triband Note 3 units would be released like they are doing with the S4s. Wouldn't help us current owners of course.

    There will probably be a Note 4 out by the end of Summer, and I'm sure it'll be Spark ready.

    Yes seriously. That is only speculation then.. Which they do like to try and release near the same time but it's no guarantee.

    You are such a tool no its a fact they have released them same time every year with the note the note 2 and the note 3. They have released the the s series at the same time each year too. Wow so guess what stop being a **** and accept that yes I do know what I'm talking about and it will be in October when it is released and September when they announce it ok.

    At this point, the note 4 coming out in September or October is a best guess and most likely will happen. But you never know. Apple released the iPad, iPad 2,and the new iPad in March, then switched gears and released the iPad with retina display and iPad Air in October

    Wow so hostile over asking for a source.

    Yes you're right they normally do it.. But you don't know 100% that it will happen again. Chance? Sure. Definitely? Not unless they say.

    Spark enabled S4 was just recently released... so you never know .. they could release a Spark enabled Note 3 around April..

    I don't know much about the global version, but I did look at the transmission bands on the back of the box. I have a friend who has one. There was a long list of frequencies. 2500MHz was not listed.

    My wife actually switched from the S5 to the Note 3 because it did NOT have Spark. We don't have Spark in our city, and you can't talk and surf at the same time on Spark, so you can't use navigation and talk on the phone at the same time. That is a deal breaker for us.

    Not going to happen. It's a hardware requirement, not a software requirement that the device be Spark enabled. Put another way, without changing components in a device, there is not way to retrofit a non Spark device to become Spark enabled. Note 4 should be Spark enabled.

    I'm interested in the Note 4, but if Spark isn't fully functional here by then, I'll stick with my Note 3. I was shocked when I checked out a Spark phone at my Sprint store a couple months ago. I had full bars of 4G LTE on my phone, but their phone only had 3G.
