    I thought the 928 supported the aws and it just had to be unlocked but the 928 isn't listed for the supported phones

    With Verizon XLTE expected to be announced on May 19, we have had a number of readers ask about which phones will be able to take advantage of the upgraded speeds. As you may have guessed, most of Verizons phones that have been released within the last year are compatible. All they need is support for Band 4 LTE, which is the AWS spectrum that Big Red is pumping into cities to create this XLTE coverage. Phones like the Galaxy S5 and S4, Moto X, DROID ULTRA and MAXX, and One (M8) are all going to be a part of the fun.

    Below, you will find a solid list of the types of phones that will work with XLTE, courtesy of our sources.
    Phones

    Moto X
    DROID ULTRA
    DROID MAXX
    DROID MINI
    HTC One (M8)
    HTC One Max
    LG G2
    LG Lucid 3
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3
    Samsung Galaxy Galaxy S5
    Samsung Galaxy S4
    Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
    Samsung ATIV SE
    Lumia Icon
    Blackberry Q10
    Blackberry Z30
    iPhone 5C
    iPhone 5S

    That's not the final list but its not looking very promising

    Those are all XLTE ready. The Nokia Lumia 928 is XLTE capable. It requires an update from Nokia to turn it on.

    That's what I was thinking. Perhaps the Nokia Cyan update or a small update only for Nokia phones that have the aws hardware will get the XLTE turned on?

    The FCC approved Nokia's request for a software upgrade to enable the 928 for AWS over two years ago. If it hasn't happened by now...

    Dude, it's barely released 1 year ago. Plus "XLTE" wasn't live anyway. Why push a separate update to an older phone when you can do it later?

    Neat trick getting something approved for a phone before it even existed. That would have had this upgrade approved months before the device ever went to FCC. Again that really is quite the impressive Nokia achievement - must have been psychic licensing.

    No. In a previous post to this thread you were optimistic that it might happen. I see you still have your fingers crossed.

    This past weekend I was at a cottage near a Lake and thought the LTE coverage would be limited. I had about 3-4 signal bars at best and with MS Network speed test app, I got 45 mgbs download speeds over celluar. Seems like XLTE was working. Probably just had a low usage area so my speeds went way uo. Normally have 20 mgbs speed in the city.
