Re: Destined to fail

The model of buying a phone and then shopping for carriers will never work in the U.S. until the government gets involved and mandates that all carriers use the same type of network (GSM or CDMA) and same frequencies.
Maybe I'm wrong but isn't that exactly what will happen since all carriers are moving to LTE ? Or does the voice part still stay on the old respective GSM/CDMA networks?

I'm not an expert on what's going on regarding carriers and what technologies they are adopting. All I know is that the current system is a clusterf**** of consumer unfriendliness.

LTE STILL doesn't have a voice standard. I'm not sure whether the first LTE phones will ever be firmware upgradeable to have LTE Voice, or the LTE Voice circuit must burnt into hardware (CPU consumption/latency), or we will wind up with a format war with phones having 2-3 different LTE voice implementations DVD -/+ style.
