No support for Sprint

The official specs on LG's site do not show support for LTE bands 26 and 41 in the unlocked model.

If that's true then this device will likely perform very poorly on Sprint.
bones boy

Isn't Sprint's primary band 25? Don't they use 1900 MHz in most places? I don't know but I'm curious too. Pretty stoked that the unlocked L6 has CDMA access at all.

Yes, it is but it's the most congested also. You'd be missing B26 which is their low band - important for in-building and rural coverage, and B41 - their high-capacity, high-speed band.

I suspect the band listing on LG and vendor sites are incorrect but I don't know for sure.

It should be noted that Sprint has to whitelist all devices which are allowed to connect to their network. I simply can't see Sprint be willing to allow a new device on their network that lacks those bands in this day and age which is why I suspect LG's info is wrong.
