After a little bit of snooping, we have finally answered the question that has gone unresolved since Sprint originally announced their 4G LTE network plans. “Will there be SIM cards?” Of course you would automatically be prone to say yes since Metro PCS, Verizon, and AT&T all use SIM cards for their LTE network as well, but LTE does have the ability to be SIM-less.
Well thanks to the announcement of the HTC EVO 4G LTE and the HTC Fact Sheet of the device, it was finally known the device has an “embedded SIM.” It was listed as a feature of the device located at the bottom of the fact sheet. Sprint has been extremely quiet about the subject, so much so our very own sources would not leak us the information about it. Though the information was confirmed by an HTC representative later. So with the mystery unraveled, it looks like Sprint will still be on the same playing field as the rest of the country when it comes to LTE (besides frequency support.)
