At&t iPhone 5 secretly supports future Sprint lte bands

The cellular band (Band Class 5) is not a future Sprint band. Sprint uses band class 26 which happens to encompass the cellular band, but Sprint has no cellular spectrum; they're using band class 26 for their SMR spectrum, which the at&t iPhone does NOT support. As far as PCS, they are currently using the PCS G block which requires band class 25, not band class 2 which is what the at&t iPhone apparently has.

Both of the CDMA versions will be the same though, meaning that if it was hacked (or if sprint and vzw have some type of roaming agreement on LTE) the phone could support both carriers current LTE offerings. Future offerings from sprint or VZW are both not supported by the iPhone5, sorry...

One thing you have to realize is that the Sprint nanoSIM is not designed to recognize Verizon LTE. It would take a SIM swap to give that feature life if Sprint & VZW come to an LTE roaming agreement.
