They're coming out with kosher 4g devices
I started this thread after I heard a ad about new 4g phones coming out
And to be honest I didn't even read the article I posted, I just took it from google results [i have limited access]

This article is old (February 22), they have pushed it off a bit now until later in the year.

I heard from someone that heard from someone that heard from someone that spoke with one of the top guys in Verizon and they said that they're waiting to get a part needed to fix the tower, in the mean time they'll push 3G narrative.

What's relevant to this topic:
Quote
T-Mobile has dedicated virtually all of its mid-band spectrum portfolio to LTE operations, keeping only the last 10 MHz sliver of spectrum for 3G legacy users and packing the tiny GSM channels into the LTE and UMTS guard bands for those using 2G-only devices.

Verizon has repurposed all mid-band spectrum assets for LTE in many markets, including the AWS-3 spectrum assets. This leaves a small section of 850 MHz (cellular) frequency band for CDMA operation. In markets like Los Angeles, a portion of cellular band has already been repurposed for LTE.

Better than the new iphones? Never had android before. The Prime and Google freebies are great, but I am on a postpaid business plan, only gets free Netflix.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.
Pele Good,Maradona Better, George Best.

So is there any work around, to activate a 3g phone on an existing business shared data plan?
I currently have five 3g phones on that plan, and can still switch a different 3g phone onto those numbers, but I can't seem to add another line to my plan with a 3g phone. I also can't seem to replace an existing smartphone on my plan, with a 3g phone.
