    So that when they make the switch and release their LTE network, the supposed wimax iPhone 5 could run on it, or would they need to create a new iphone?

    new phone. the point is that the LTE chip isn't ready yet. That's why ppl are saying Sprint might get WiMax now while AT&T & VZW get LTE later when LTE chips are ready.

    this is probably whats going to happen on tuesday

    LTE chips by Qualcomm are not ready yet. Qualcomm can't deliver that many this holiday season.

    People will lose their damn minds if Sprint gets the 5 before ATT and Verizon. It will be insane.

    This place will be filled with pages of "how can I break my contract" and "I am never buying another Apple product".

    I am happy I didn't get a 4 now. On the slim chance the 5 is only on Sprint for a while.
