    Tri band LTE S4?

    Hey guys just wondering, any scoop what frequencies the S4 will support? It's between the S4 or IPhone 5 , although im leaning towards the S4 cause the iPhone 5 can't do data and voice even on LTE (need extra antenna)

    Anyway just to future proof my phone, does anyone know if the S4 will be tri band LTE?

    Only PCS 1900 LTE. No tri-band devices until late 2013. First ones that support tri-bands will most likely be hotspot dongles.

    Only triband device is the overdrive hotspot. I would expect the Note III would be tri-band.

    The S4 will be 1900 LTE Only at launch....Tri-Band LTE phones will not launch until the Fall Line-Up....Then its a possibility the S4 is re-released by Sprint with the Tri-Band LTE Chipset, same way T-MO re-released the S3 with LTE.

    IMO I would NOT upgrade until Tri-band LTE phones are released, any phone with 1900 LTE only will need to be upgraded to gain 800 and 2.5 LTE, Why waste a 2 year upgrade when you know you're going to want the 800 and 2.5 capabilities.

    yeah im not due upgrade till end of this year, if the Note 3 comes tri-band ill get that, if the iPhone 5S with a bigger screen comes out with a tri-band i might even consider that too. I paid full price for a newer Note 2, its beast better than my old Evo 4G LTE(htc one x) and im happy for awhile, didnt wait for s4 because as for hardware wise its nothing crazy update other than a faster processor & better battery efficient but with note 2 im already getting a whole day on a single charge with heavy use and always syncing. the big battery makes a difference

    Yup just returned the ip5 and went back to my 4s.. I'm going to wait for the a Triband phone as well .. And it's not even the reason I returned it , the reason is because it can't do data and voice at the same time even when data is on LTE .. Fail and a fail
