How will Samsung Galaxy SIII switch between 3G & 4G?


“…..Sprint, a carrier that was the first in the U.S. to deploy 4G with WiMax technology, is making the switch to LTE. Unfortunately for the CDMA/EVDO Now Network, that switch is still on-going and Sprint doesn’t yet have 4G LTE deployed. That means Sprint owners who are early adopters of the Galaxy S III will be stuck on 3G CDMA/EVDO speeds. That said, when LTE is available, Sprint’s variant will be able to hop onto 4G LTE and its Galaxy S III is an LTE-ready device waiting for a network.”….

So when will SPRINT have 4G LTE????  Having a Samsung Galaxy S3 only running on 3G feels like driving a Mercedes Benz on doughnut wheels.
