Re: What a load of crap...

No, Sprint towers will dump CDMA and go all LTE (or be phased out where there is already good T-Mobile coverage)

Verizon is dumping CDMA/EVDO by the end of next year (you won't be able to activate a non-LTE phone on their network after this June) so most likely they will do the same for Sprint's network. There are enough GSM non-phone devices (medical monitors, alarms, data loggers and so forth) that use GSM that GSM coverage will need to be maintained for the foreseeable future, but CDMA will be a thing of the past quite soon - it was probably one of the reasons Sprint wanted to do this as upgrading their entire network to all-LTE like Verizon is doing is not cheap!
