My take with the new LG Viper 4G LTE from Hutch, Kansas

by Rickie Smith Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Monday, April 23, 2012 - 9:01 AM MDT   The LG Viper is one of Sprint’s first 4G LTE capable phones, and was launched along side with the GNEX LTE. When you first take it out of the box the phone is very light and thin and may lead you to believe that this phone can’t be all too powerful and great, but it is, just like its name suggests. The phone's casing is 50 percent recycled plastic and the package is made from 87 percent recycled material,

Move over Magenta Girl, Dish Network is the hot new chick in town

by Robert Herron Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Tuesday, December 20, 2011 - 3:31 PM MST   “I shoulda taken that left turn at Albuquerque”, as Bugs Bunny often said. Or in the case of AT&T, maybe they should have taken a left turn at T-Mobile and went straight for Dish Network. Today BGR and Retuers wrote articles that perhaps an AT&T buyout of Dish Network is the natural migration path now for Big Blue and it’s 4G spectrum crunch. Seem far fetched?

Mid-range LG LTE coming to Sprint prepaid/wholesale?

Mid-range LG LTE coming to Sprint prepaid/wholesale?

by Josh McDaniel Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 9:35 AM MDT   Last year, LG released a mid-range device that made its way from one CDMA carrier to another. This year appears to be no exception. The LG LG870 recently passed through the FCC OET (Office of Engineering and Technology) with Sprint LTE and band 10 CDMA2000 on board. If the LG Viper (LS840) last year is any indication, it was released as the Connect (MS840) on MetroPCS, and then as the Lucid (VS840) on
