4G possible until 4G_LTE is operational?

Will LTE phones operate on 4G until LTE is operational, or only be able to use 3G?

I have been told both, but most recently that they can use 4G until 4G_LTE is operational.

No the LTE phones can not use the wimax 4G, you will have to wait til LTE comes about and be on 3G til then. The only device that was just announced was the hotspot that can use everything.

Vonix08.  Is correct on this the hardware in the phone for lte is different than that for wimax.  Phones with LTE will not  be able to use WiMax and those with WiMax will not be able to use LTE.  We are working on rolling out the towers with LTE as fast as possible.
