Re: Actually.. their will never be a Spectrum Apocalypse..
Without going into too much detail (I'll do that later), LTE antennas...and the radios behind them...are configured quite differently (ideally) than legacy CDMA gear. Look up Remote Radio Heads to see what I'm talking about.
As for why they didn't kill EvDO in favor of voice, I'm pretty sure that an EvDO line card can't do 1x, and vice versa.

Right, but what stops them from just shutting down EvDO and reassigning the channel to voice service? Would it be a limitation of the 1x line cards, they can only handle so many simultaneous channels or some such?
Mostly idle curiosity on my part, but seeing the failure of the cellular network did reinforce my belief that POTS is worth the $0.80/day it costs.
