eHRPD + non-LTE phones

Hello, I have tried searching around (here and google) but haven't been able to find an answer.

 

I realize that eHRPD works hand in hand with LTE, but I have been trying to confirm whether or not eHRPD can/should/does work with any existing 3g/1x/evdo phones/radios?

 

 

I personally have an evo 3d (and a loaned out evo wimax), but I was wondering since eHRPD is an enhancement of 3g, what exactly does or would it take on the client (phone) to be able to connect via eHRPD. IE does it require certain hardware, or baseband/firmware, or system/software or all the above.

 

I have not noticed eHRPD on my 3d, but I don't know if there are any supported towers in my area (st louis).

 

Thanks, and thanks for the great site and info.

eHRPD is a core network enhancement, not an EV-DO airlink enhancement, nor a site specific enhancement. Thus, it does not require "supported towers"-- it requires backend infrastructure. And on the UE end, it requires LTE capable devices.

Can data on a non-LTE phone be pushed through an LTE data core via eHRPD?
