WiMax

I read that sprint is discontinuing WiMax later this year.

FP uses that protocol. How will that effect phone service and already purchased devices?

    If you have a phone, you can continue to use 3G service when WiMax goes away.
    If you have a WiMax-only hotspot, you would need to upgrade to another device. If you have an Overdrive hotspot (or another one that has 3G fallback), you can add the 3G access for $3.99/month in the "Services" section of the website.
