Re: They'll still force you to buy a Verizon branded phone
The Galaxy S4 looked like it had two SIM card slots. I'm hoping this is for all of the LTE offerings by all the carriers. Hopefully it has a CDMA radio in it too. Basically what I'm trying to say, this may be a true world phone. My Verizon Galaxy S3 is, I can put a SIM in it from any carrier and use it. Of course I only get edge speeds on T-Mobile, but 3G speeds will work on AT&T. The SIM isn't locked either.
Hopefully LTE will simplify things though. Voice over LTE will hopefully allow the manufacturers to make one device for all carriers. If the carriers allow it... The manufacturers are certainly getting more powerful and it seems they don't have to cater to the carriers so much.
