Will I be able to use the Note 4 in a 4G LTE area (non Spark?)

I live in the 79999 (El Paso, TX) area and would like to know if I will be able to use the Note 4 on the 4G LTE network (non Spark?)

Note: I do have 4G LTE and it works great, but I'm not ready to step back to 3G as it's over used here.

An authoritative answer would be greatly appreciated.

Yes you will be able to use it in a 4G area that isn't Spark enabled.  Spark just means it can use more than one band. If your area isn't upgrade it will use the 1900 band which is Sprints normal channel for 4G.

AS long as the 4G you have is LTE and not WiMax, you are good.

NO SPARK PHONES DON'T WORK IN 4G/LTE AREAS THEY ONLY WORK IN 3G OR SPARK NOT 4G/LTE

NO YOU CANNOT ACCORDING TO CUSTOMER SERVICE FROM SPRINT. IF YOU USE A SPARK PHONE YOU CANNOT GET 4G/LTE IT IS SPARK OR 3G. YOUR PROBLEM IS UNRESOLVABLE AND IT IS YOUR PROBLEM NOT THEIRS ACCORDINT TO CUSTOMER SERVICE.

That is not true. All new Spark phones have all LTE bands for Sprint and some.

I currently use the S5 Sport which is a Spark phone and I'm using LTE.

AumMantra - Thank you for posting. If you have a phone that is Spark capable, you should still be able to pick up 4G/LTE. - Kareem
