Can you guys please use your contacts at sprint and find out if this phone will be Tri Band LTE or not? if this isn't then it will be a epic fail on sprints part.

All indications are that the Sprint Note 3 will *not* be tri-band LTE. See FCC filings for the Samsung N900P (widely believed to the Sprint version of the Note 3), which show only the older LTE band 25 (Sprint's 1900 Mhz LTE band):
Major fail on Sprint's part IMO. I don't see how they can conscionably be selling customers such an expensive uni-band device at this point in time.
(Sorry, I would include the links for the FCC documents, but Phone Arena won't let me.)

See how the Note 3 camera ridicules the Z1 in every area:

Better be triband...still unsure about this. I wonder how much sprint is selling to for with the one up plan. It's actually probably cheaper this way because it's taking the actual cost of the device and not the subsidized price. Maybe Sprint is trying to push us towards the one up program and their unlimited plans by intentionally increasing the subsidized price by $50

$350 is 2 much cause if u add $350 you got $700 and there is no contract

i'm a current note2 owner and was SO VERY looking forward to this, but.......
WOULD NOT BUY, if isn't tri-band!!!!!

yeah i agree this should be $299 on a 2 year contract. $349 subsidized is getting crazy. 2 years ago $199 was the most anyone paid.

I was going to buy this. But what do I get for an extra $50? Nothing. Plus I have no 4G and slow 3G. What's the point? I guess I'll stay with my GN awhile longer.

For $350, it should be real leather on the back and should also come with a free S Smart Cover.
