    I have read that it is not compatible, but that the only major difference between 3G and 4G is download speed, which isn't even a huge factor for cell phones.

    Well, that and the protocol (LTE) which, as I understand it is GSM vs CDMA.

    The biggest factor is that you can do voice and data at the same time, while your getting a heck of alot better download.
    Resistance is futile.

    The answer is NO.

    4G is the "Upgrade" from HSUPA, which is Upgrade to HSDPA.

    HSUPA and HSDPA is supported by the droid but not aviable an a lot of citys.
    4G will be having HIGHER download speeds as HSUPA and it will enable data while voice calls.

    Yeah the total upgrade is supposed to end by what the end of 2012 early 2013 are the estimates right now.

    Well, the 4G in Verizon will let us have the browser during a Call (Which can not be done with Verizons 3G)
