    Smile 9530 Compatible with 4G

    do you think there will be a way to access 4G network on our 9530/9500? As of now it is a no go, but there has got to be something like a radio change or anything. There are a lot of great minds here! Just looking for opinions.

    yes and no.

    the cdma world is changing, but like it is now we 9530'ers aren't on a 3g network we have 1XEV.

    cdma will be changing to HSPA which is the equivalent to 4g.

    at least thats the way I understand it.

    I believe you are right on that one. 1XEV will not be able to convert. It's a whole new ball game. I'm just suprised on your quote "9530'ers aren't on a 3G network". Verizon is wasting my time.

    First off welcome to BBOS!

    Let me modify SMC's statement a bit.

    CDMA uses a system called EVDO which is the equivalent of 3G for GSM users which is HSPA.

    Verizon, which is uses CDMA is launching their equivalent of 4G which is called LTE sometime late 2010 early 2011. Once they turn the switch on you will be able to use with your phone. However by 2011 I suspect you may have another phone which certainly will be compatible with LTE/4G. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the input. You probably are right though....a new phone will be in my hands by then. I appreciate your comment.
