But yes most of us know of this already. The phone has been available since late December.

So, don't break your phone, you'll get a replacement mono-band S4, not the Tri-band.

Also, I know they announced it a while back, but has anyone actually seen one in the wild? There was no release and they are not listed anywhere to buy. The website still has the mono-band S4. If you have a link to one for sale from Sprint, please post it.

i work for sprint, so i feel like eventually the warehouse will run out of mono-band and start using the tri-band s4 as replacements. ive known the S4's were switched to the tri-band since it was announced, i just wanted to let everyone know (who didnt already) that us existing S4's are getting screwed over!

Sprints website has it. If you look it says that they are spark compatible. They have been selling them there since December and there are already a handful of members that have them here. My sister has one.

Well, isn't that nice. Their website must do regional things or something because I don't see Spark capable listed on the phone page online. Eitherway, that's great to hear!

EDIT, yeah nevermind, see it now. Must have been living under a rock. Sorry guys.

The S5 is right around the corner you know. Wonder if that will have the spark bands?

More than likely yes. Here's hoping Sprint actually FINISHES the LTE rollout for all bands instead of doing the half-assed job they did with WiMAX.
