that's strange.

Sprint has been selling a CDMA/LTE A9 since November.

Why, because....

A Verizon LTE only phone would have no service half the time because their towers are spaced too far apart.

Smart pairing

Snapdragon 617 with 3GB

No 800 class but the latest in 600 class and the memory to handle.
Great way to keep the performance.

You can't be serious!

1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617?
I know the 615 is in a couple of Mid-range phones but how much better can the 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 be on a "flagship"???????????

The start of something wonderful...

If there is an A9 with dual sim then you can Verizon LTE and a second network for a backup. I hate having a phone being useful only on one network or having to choose only one network or be forced to have carrier bloat by default. It will be nice when the USA is like most other places where you can choose the phone without regard to network. The faster CDMA dies the better...

Risky not to use a phone with 3G (right now)

Interesting stuff.

Even though Verizon has overlaid their entire network with LTE, LTE and CDMA still have different propagation and load patterns such that I still drop into 3G on my devices. Perhaps it'd be better in a few cases if it tried to hold onto the weaker LTE signal, but having that backup is still incredibly useful when the LTE signal is too weak to work effectively.

I hope Verizon can start repurposing 3G spectrum more aggressively in the upcoming years so that this doesn't remain true for much longer.
