no you will not need to upgrade your phone, WiMax and WiMax2 are exactly the same its just a software upgrade. but what worries me is that if sprint decides to switch from wimax to LTE. what will happen to all of the wimax phones?

LTE and WiMax are similar
I bet they would make it tie in with
a software upgrade ..

Uhh no it doesn't. Verizon uses LTE towers too. Do you see them with simcards?

Verizon LTE phones do use a SIM card. LTE is GSM based and uses a special SIM to access the LTE network. It uses CDMA for talk at the current time, This is how the Thunderbolt can talk and surf while on the phone. CDMA does not support this feature. In the future both Voice and Data will use LTE virtually making CDMA an ancient technology. I agree with johnny appleseed. Research before you post invalid information.
