1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I'm appreciating the speed, but:

    Concerned about being throttled, and, 4G uses more battery. I don't see a way to go to 3G (in Settings) to help with those issues. Am I missing something?

    Thank you so much.

    There's an app called 4G toggle. Works great.

    Don't worry about getting throttled. Last month I used 25GB of data and six days into this month I'm already at 17GB. (Internet has been flaky for a few weeks so been using my phone A LOT). Anyways, I haven't noticed degradation in speed.

    I had downloaded that, but thought that switching to CDMA only meant I couldn't surf and talk at the same time. Just tried, and I can! Thank you!

    That's good to know. I wonder if it's where you live. We're a town of <25,000, so we may not have enough traffic to make throttling necessary. I hope I have the same experience you do! Thank you!

    I haven't noticed any throttling and I am a 4 to 6 gig a month user. Tethering it to my laptop right now.
