    Could you use a Rezound with no 4G?

    I was thinking back to the times when I was in Japan and had a very crazy late night of club hoping and when my cell phone was off the charger from 10 pm to 7 am (CRAZY NIGHTS!) and I still have a charge on my flip phone. I don't have those same crazy nights being that I am older and have a steady girlfriend of 4 years now. Withouth 4G the rezound may stand to have some great battery life correct me if I am wrong. I came over to Verizon not caring about 4G until I got a droid charge (lasted me only a week before i returned it) But I was instantly addicted to the 4G speeds. I wonder to myself sometimes if I would even consider using the rezound if it was only a 3G phone? It still is a great phone, but download apps in a blink and surfing pages in a flash seems to be something that is a serious must have for me now that I have tasted the faster side of things now. And youtube in High Quality in a jiffy is great too.

    Could you do it? Wouldn't this probably make the rezound more like a droid incredible 3?

    On a similar note, is it me or is the 3G on this phone really crappy to the point where I wouldn't even dare go and switch between 3G and 4G? I did a few speed tests in my area and on most 3G connections I can't get over 600 kbps. But in the same area I'm getting 27 mbps.

    I am getting up to 2mb dl on 3g which is faster than the Droid X I came from so I can deal with 3G as my phone on 3G with the screen on low brightness lasts me up to 4 days. 4G is nice (I am getting up to 25mb dl) but I only use it when downloading apps.

    Sure why not? 3G is fast enough, and with the smart use of WiFi, sync at home for example.
    Lately I've been thinking keeping my 3G phone and upgrade when 4G and ICS is old hat.

    Yeah, i was thinking about only using 4G when it's important, but then i tend to go and do youtube and break.com and downloading apps. it would be GREAT if there was a prompt that says "would you like to switch to 4G for the utilization of this application momentarily?" I think thats a great idea where it would only use 4G in those needed instances. there needs to be a smart function of some sort that only uses it while updating or downloading big files or streaming. I know there are programs that let you switch from 4g to 3g, but for me to switch often it would seem i have to go in to deep. I'd just like a light switch widget. is there anything of the sort?

    If I never had 4G I wouldn't even care. Now that I have it I get slightly pissy when I run afoul 3G. 3G/1X can take a piss in the wind. I want my 4G!!

    I do it all the time.. I live JUST outside of solid 4G at home... and I scream hip hooray every time the wind blows the right way and suddenly I'm surfing at over 20mbps lol. I typically save any major downloads for when I'm at work in 4G or night when my phone is just idle anyways and i could give a crap whether it takes 10 seconds or 10 minutes to download a file. I don't have the 3G speed issues you're having either though.. on a bad day I get upwards of 1.5MBPS 3G *shrug*. that said on a good day in 4G LTE (and I have the speed test to prove it) 45MBPS down and 15 up X_X.. my best on 3g was 2.6 down and 1.5 up...

    4G is about an 8 mile ride down the mountain for me, so I keep my Rezound set to 3G.

    My love for 4G is being able to surf and talk at the same time not download speeds.
