    At launch, only Band 25 will be active. Bands 26 and 41 will be available "post launch" per info from Sprint.
    If you can get the phone's MSL code, you can go in and activate the other Bands on your own.
    An OTA update will likely come down the pike when Sprint is ready to make all Bands active for everyone.
    For the unwashed masses/general public, I would like to think that the handoff would be seemless to avoid confusion, lost signals & data, etc.

    In places such as NYC LA SF CHI DEN MIA... Band 41 is already live and kicking so triband phones will be able to hop right on as theyre released atleast in these cities... I imagine 1st Gen phones will probably need some tinkering after release as some are liable hold onto weaker bands over falling to a lower band, not fall back to TD LTE when its signal is strong again, and such...it happens with all new Tech...sure Sprint can issue firmware updates to fix these issues, but the radios to have flawless performance out the box will probably take until 2nd 3rd Gen Triband devices..

    They are probably going to wait until it is more widespread before officially activating the other bands.
    I am just going by the info in the Sprint LG G2 app:

    Unfortunately, that was an ugly rumor until the official date was announced.
    Friday, November 8th is the day.

    I'm hearing people who attempt to unlock, still are not able to access band 41 even though its live in their market. The S4 Mini and the Re-released S4(T) are going to be the only ones shipping with Spark (Triband) access right out the box. The One Max, and Mega will go live late Nov/early Dec. The G2 and the Nexus will not be until shortly after the New Year.

    BTW the S4T will be announced Next Week with a release around the End of the month...from what I'm told.

    I am in the Metro Atlanta area. My G2 is spectacular. Battery is a beast. Connecting to LTE around here is not a problem at all.
    Not rooted as of this moment. Not many custom ROMs out there yet so I may wait until there is one.
    Rooting w/o having a custom ROM gives some expanded options, but I am not needing any just yet.
    If I do root w/o a ROM, I will probably use this method: DroidViews | Root and Install TWRP Recovery on LG G2 (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint,T-Mobile, Bell & Rogers)

    You can change/enable the LTE bands in the ##DATA# settings if you have your MSL code

    I initiated a Chat with a Sprint Rep online, today actually, and pleasantly asked for mine which was happily provided.
    You can also call.

    Using the nexus 5 in Miami which is one of the cities with Spark....and I see no difference than when I have my S3. I have my phone set to preferred LTE.
    Do I need to change anything or Spark isn't "on" yet???

    Spark isn't turned on in the nexus 5, it will get a update early next to year. You can turn on band 41 using your msl# but I don't think it will do anything.

    Unless a software update can add an additional radio you're going to be out of luck with waiting for that. :-P
