I went to the Glendale, CA (91204) Sprint Store and I was given a vague answer by their Sprint Representatives (The Store Manager told me that he actually hasn't heard anything) - but for now it is Q1 2014. However, since last week (01/01/2014), My LG G2 started to switch from 3G to 4G LTE and I am getting consistent 10 Mbps/5Mbps (Down/Up) speeds. Let's hope that the Spark Update will happen sooner in Q1 2014 than later. I cannot wait to put the theoretically 50 - 60 Mbps Download Speeds to the test.
Thank you for reaching out to us with your inquiry.

Just wondering now that Sprint expanded Sprint Spark in Austin,Tx will Sprint send update to LG G2's so that we can benefit from this new Sprint Spark Network?
I have the new LG G2 and would like to know when the Spark update will be released for my phone? Do I have to have the update for my phone to access Spark?
You haven't actually answered the original question, one that many people are waiting for an answer to. Now that Sprint Spark is available when will LG G2 owners be able to use it? Right now the phone is being sold, falsely, as a Sprint Spark compatible phone, however this is not the case as it can not currently connect to the network. The area I live apparently has one of the best Sprint Spark coverages, however my G2 can not use it until you release an update fixing the phone??
Could you give all LG G2 users an actual date when their phones will work the way you advertise them?
A somewhat disappointed customer.
Hi there. There should not be an update to activate the Spark network. You can check for software updates by going into Menu-Settings-System updates and check for them. Do you see LTE services on your phone? This should be a big indicator of the services in your area.

I know theres not an update to activate the spark network! You totally did NOT understand what im talking about. Does sprint even let their employees know Whats going on.
Read the 8th paragraph and then get back to me when you can understand what it is that im speaking of.....
To give you a bit more transparency into what 'latinoboitx' is talking about:
PLEASE NOTE: These news were dated from November 2013 and may not reflect any changes since then or if the described will actually be implemented in the update which is from what I'm hearing today occur some time in Q1 2014. Also, I believe that the spinning Spark indicator would be too much of a distraction.
