The first LTE phone approved by the FCC is the Samsung SCH-R900
We posted back in March about the MetroPCS's intentions to be the first with an LTE handset to match its metropolitan network deployed this year. Fast forward a few months, and the Samsung SCH-R900 has already gotten off the FCC dissection table, ready to deprive your wallets of all disposable income left.

It is a dual-mode CDMA / LTE handset, with the LTE capabilities shining on the 1700 / 1900 radio bands. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are also in there. Considering Verizon's LTE efforts, the phone will probably need a SIM card as well. Come on, future, arrive already, eh?

@narley How do you know there is no LTE anywhere? Just because you cant use it doesnt mean it isnt there. Its all around us, waiting, pacing, for a phone to pluck.

I mean, this isn't saying much because it's still a hybrid phone. The data gets LTE and that's great. But has there been a solution for the voice portion of it? That's what I'm waiting for. If we are going to have one universal standard, we can't really have CDMA/LTE and GSM/LTE phones. Can't take my CDMA/LTE phone over to AT&T. Is the solution for voice on LTE gonna be VoIP?

Well I had all the companies lol and over here in Los Angeles metro pcs and boost and nextel And t-mobile ,verizon n sprint all work waaaay better than AT&T . When I had metro for a while I yes I had the crappiest phone but I atleast didn't drop as much calls as my iPhone 4 shocking but true .. Over here AT&T is the worst company yes att might work good on other places but over here in La it's crap even when u are outside and have 5 bars of service u still drop calls and get call ended..And wit metro u don't it works good outside even in places with 1 bar of service

And where the hell did AT&T come u in this article? This had nothing to do with AT&T or the iPhone 4. You have nothing better to do with your life than mope about the iPhone 4. No one really wants you here. Go run into something, like a knife, and see if anyone here notices you not commenting about the iPhone 4.
