    Let me know when LTE hits Raleigh, NC and then I'll care...

    Any clues on when it will? My upgrade won't hit until February or March, and if it looks like LTE will be coming soon thereafter, I'll gladly wait to upgrade.

    It's like Verizon and AT&T are second graders sticking their tongues out at each other.

    That was pretty much the main gist of it which I believe is smarter because they won't run into issues like those with Sprint.
    You dealt with an uninformed rep as CEO Ivan Seidenberg says first phone in February (AKA Q1).

    Verizon hints at LTE pricing based on data speed - FierceWireless

    In the end AT&T, T-Mo, VZW or Sprint by standard do not and will not have true 4G. I dumped VZW almost a month a go for T-Mobile. I don't need the speeds but my G2 pulls near 10MB Down and 2MB Up at times. Typically it is 5MB Down and 2MB both 2X plus than my Droid and Droid X. I don't think LTE is going to take off like they want because of the cost. Who knows they might make it reasonable

    i dont think this will work properly or be awesome enough until the end of next year. I doubt they have most towers ready for LTE and 4G phones wont be everywhere until the end of next year as well. And if there does happen to be a flurry of 4G phones coming the beginning of next year then i doubt vzw's network can handle all the traffic they already have. Here in Seattle VZW sucks (i think there might be 4G now or soon). My 3G goes nuts all the time and i havent tested the speeds i get but doesnt seem to be that fast. And with 4G errbody is going to jump on the boat and going to put a drag on the network. I want the extra speed but i doubt the price would be reasonable and the speed would be what they hype to be.

    I'm in the same boat as others... hard to get excited about LTE when it's gonna be a while before I see it in my area.

    ... especially hard to get excited when new devices are being pushed back for LTE capability and I won't be able to take advantage. So I'm forced to wait to upgrade so a feature I can't use is added ....

    I don't think any of the carriers are gonna be able to touch Verizon's 4G however.... once it's rolling.

    I've been seeing T-Mobile commercials taunting AT&T with their 4G service as well. The chick on a super fast looking motorcycle and the guy with AT&T are riding on a kids toy. Their basic premise is that AT&T is slowing their customers down. In the end though, I think that AT&T's biggest competitor is AT&A!

    Why are people complaining about Verizon's 3G? It is seriously just about as fast as my wifi network, and I have comcast highspeed internet. I think some of you just live in crappy areas, because my internet is lightning fast on my phone:P

    I have the fastest speed vs my t-mobile, at&t, and sprint friends. We have contests at the office sometimes to see who is fastest. I live in southern california and consistently get 700-1000 up and 1.5-2.5 down according to Speed Test. Most of the time my iphone/att friend gets 100-250 up and 400-700 down lol.
