Will an HSPA+ phone work on LTE?

    I was very surprised that this hasn't (apparently) been asked yet... even looked around via Google.

    So if I buy any of the newest HSPA+ phones, once LTE is fully deployed and switched on, is it going to work, or will it forever be limited to a lesser speed?

    Thanks, and please don't yell if the answer was right here in front of me :)

  2. I'm pretty sure HSPA and LTE are COMPLETELY different technologies, and will not work with each other.

    HSPA+ and LTE, while both GSM based technologies, are completely incompatible with one another. They require and use different radios in the device.

    Okay, cool, that's what I thought but wanted to confirm :)
