Re: my phone now worthless?
From my post above...
1700 will be dual use (LTE 60-70% & HSPA 30-40%) So those of us with 1700 HSPA only phone will not be thrown back into the dark ages. The difference lies in the max speeds, HSPA phones will top out at 42mbps there will be no upgrade for TMO HSPA to the current max of 84mbps.
How long they will keep it dual use has not yet been released but given there are a lot of older phones that are 1700 hspa only I'd say 5 yrs +/- is a suitable guess more than enough time for customers to upgrade on there own.
