    4G?

    I still don't understand how 4G is going to be true 4G? The infrastructure here in the United States can barely handle 3G so I think we're gonna get ripped off on these "4G" phones when they really aren't offering 4G. Is there going to be IPv6 support or not?

    It would be nice if we could pay for just 3g until 4g is actually worth paying for/usable.

    Definitely one of those things where the technical specs and the marketing clash. The Cell Phone company marketing department are wanting to sell the Next Generation aspect while walking all over the official definition of a 4G network.

    To officially be 4G, it would take LTE Advanced, not just LTE.

    Regardless, it's still much faster than the current 3G networks.

    There is no way T mobile has 42mps in their actual network, VZW has just 12 and my lan is 15

    According the the manager at my local Verizon, if you live in a 3G coverage area, you won't have to pay extra for the 4G if you wont be using it.

    Question for the DB experts:
    Will the Bionic be able to multi-task in both 3G and 4G?
    Have heard that it is the chip set causing the Droids lack of multi-tasking.

    I think they are going to have to come out with something a little more concrete than that. "oh well for two days you were using 4g and the rest of the month....". Until LTE is fully established everywhere, we're just going to have to trust them about that? My wife travels a good bit; I have a feeling she would be passing in and out of LTE coverage. Has anyone seen a hard dollar amount quoted for a month of LTE?

    Well Verizon's data price on there 4g modems are the same as there 3g modems. I'm thinking the price for 4g smartphone data will stay the same as 3g except it will have a cap.
    just my 2cents

    I think it will be same price as 3g for the first few months, then it will go to tier data a few week before the LTE iphone is announced.

    I have no proof, I'm just guessing on what will happen.

    My guess is they will not have 4G data prices figured out until the U.S is all 4G, or at least until the majority of the U.S. is 4G. If the spped is there, I will pay for the service. Eventually, it will come to a time that regardless of provider, we are all going to have to pay for it.
