Hi guys. Sorry it took me awhile to respond back. Tapatalk app sucks at notifying you of all proper thread responses. Anyways, yes a good friend of mine works at the Genetti hotel. Although he isn't tech savvy in that department I wasn't 100% sure if he was accurate so I had to do some checking around including the local Verizon store by K-Mart to confirm further info on the 4g. So yes it is confirmed and a few buddies of mine did see 4g here in Williamsport on and off the past couple days. They are running tests to make sure things are going to be 100% fully operational and should be turning it all on between now to a week from now. There may be another week delay like seen in other cities as cited by sources elsewhere but I don't think there will be any major delays.
As far as how much 4g coverage will be given... that I cannot determine. Once 4g is fully on you can check with the Sensorly app from the play store or go to clear.com for coverage feedback.
I was unaware of several towers around here but knew a couple locations. The lack of sprint towers explains why coverage was terrible when I had a sprint phone when I moved back up here from Florida. I'm content with Verizon for now even though they are being big babies when it comes to supporting developer phones or phones that allow you to root and/or unlock the bootloader.
As for unlimited data plans... you lose your unlimited plans when you upgrade to a new phone. If you upgraded before June 28th you should still have it. If you choose not to upgrade you will continue having unlimited until you do otherwise as mentioned above on upgrading. They are tossing out unlimited and grandfathering people into new phones with the same contracts. You will be placed into tiered plans according to what you want with 2gb of data for $30 for one month. They have higher tiered data plans for those who use more than 2gb a month. More money for them and a quicker way to make us go broke if you ask me. That's a whole different debate though and I refuse to give them anymore than $230 a month that I pay for (2 phones).
