    Actually its good for streaming movies and videos. Nfl mobile is leaps and bounds better on lte than 3g.

    Very good. Now we know and I can tell my wife to stop peering into her crystal ball. Although you got to admit the solar flare theory made for some entertainment and interesting read on what was otherwise a boring day.

    Lately Verizon has been annoying me greatly. I am a premium retailer in the midwest for Verizon, and, as an example, I had to find out about that failed "convenience fee" they were going to charge for online bill pay from NBC Nightly News. We didn't find out about the Nexus release date(officially) until THE MORNING it was allowed to be released. The outages are also annoying...They have us talking up 4G LTE, and selling someone on the phone...just to have the phone not activate for us after the sale, and have a pissed off customer waiting for their device.

    I am extremely unhappy with how they have been communicating thus far. They REALLY need to get their s*** together and come up with a solution to their inability to communicate important things like this.

    Assuming you live in a nice 3G area.

    Where I live I'm lucky if I get 500kbps on EVDO. It's okay for stuff like using DF app and what not, but when you start downloading, browsing, or even streaming (all my music is on Amazon and Google) it isn't as smooth at all.

    I live in a very fringe LTE area, but I do get it. I get 5-10mbps and much prefer it to the below 500kbps on EVDO.

    If I lived in an area that could get 2ish mbps on EVDO then I'd be pretty content with it.

    2mps regularly on 3g is quite rare...i normally have excellent 3g coverage at home and my speeds are from 1.5-2 mbps and only occasionally get 2+mbps (the highest i usually get is around 2.5 mbps but only for a short while)

    Growing pains indeed, but I'm still happy as a Verizon customer so my riot gear will stay in the closet

    I just came to Verizon from Sprint. I would take these couple of outages over Sprint's slow speeds any day. Being with them was like having an outage all the time. I'm really loving this 4g. Also one thing to try when your 4g won't connect is go to settings, wireless and networks, mobile networks, and set it to cdma only for 5 seconds, then set it back. This usually works for me.
