    Hahahahahaha. Oh man. You're probably right though. A guy can dream right?? I'm sure Phil put it on the front page because it's an interesting concept. If it did happen that would be crazy amazing. And I would take the credit for it j/k. Well this kinda puts the X off my wish list. So it's down to the One and Maxx. I need to get my hands and these phones!!

    I was thinking the same thing!! I feel like being on VZ is like an endless loop of new devices......later. Much much later. We're always waiting and when the phone we want comes out, the next best thing is around the corner. It sucks.

    Once Verizon activates band 4 and volte, you can use an unlocked T-Mobile or at&t lte (aws) phone on Verizon and get 4glte wherever Verizon 1700/2100mhz lte is deployed, which won't be as widespread( and probably limited to heavy demand areas) as Verizon's band 13 lte, but if you must have the latest phones and verizon, then it is an option.

    Any device currently using 700mhz upper block c lte would currently work on Verizon, this includes the nexus 7. Now, Verizon lte at this point is data only which is why I said once volte is deployed, which should happen next year. Also, band 4 deployment should be next year as well, and band 4 is the same band used by AT&T and tmobile for lte.

    Interesting post dpham.

    Do you (or anyone else) know if the Moto X has the capability now with a OTA update to utilize the VoLTE when Verizon turns on their AWS band 4? Or would you just be sol until the Moto X1 comes out with a different chip ?

    Judging by.....http://www.droid-life.com/2013/08/13...volte-roadmap/

    My guess is that it doesn't have VoLTE yet. For starters it won't be that widespread so launching it right now seems kinda pointless for Moto to go through the hassle to do it. Granted it does say a phone at the end of the year will have it, but then again its not a feature that is mentioned anywhere that I've seen.

    Keep in mind that VoLTE will probably be very limited and who knows when it'll actually go live. I would hope they get the kinks worked out before they open to customers since its not backwards compatible with CDMA, so thats gonna be a lot of dropped calls.

    CDMA on Verizon seems incredibly reliable, idk why ppl would be asking for VoLTE to be rdy for them, other than possibly using unlocked phones. But even then since VoLTE will only be on Verizon for now....we don't rly know when those other phones will work or even if they will on Verizons network.

    I agree with Woosh based on the article he posted. Most likely the Moto X won't support volte on Verizon. but one of it's successors would most likely support it. this means that, once band 4 is activated, you should be able to get data only (no voice) over lte (band 4 only) if you have say a t-mobile device capable of lte. you won't be able to get band 13 nor will you be able to get 2g/3g .
