    Not even a remote chance, different frequencies, different software, and even reference protocols are different. But that is ok, the chances of you getting lte in an area not covered by sprint is very slim anyway.

    I think everyone's going to wish for VZW LTE, but I wonder how it's going to work with the pricing. Those caps are going to come up pretty quickly on that new high-speed LTE!

    Sprint uses WiMax, while Verizon uses LTE, so no.
