    I know everyone is trying to figure out how much 4g will cost on Verizon when the thunderbult comes out. I have a question for anyone with 4g on at&t, t mobile, or sprint: Does 4g cost more than 3g from your network? If it does then it will most likely be the same with verizon.

    $10 more on Sprint. Verizon is staying with $29.99/unlimited...for now though.

    Are you positive? That would be great. The only problem is there going to screw us a couple months later and make it cost $50. Thanks for the info.

    Yessir, 100%! Our CFO stated it in a press release but, I don't have the link. If you sign on while its locked in, you're grandfathered until you change your plan.

    If you sign an agreement while 4G is $29.99 for unlimited, it can't be changed unless you change it.

    Thanks, you've been such a great help! One last question: How soon do you think they will change the price because I get my upgrade in April.

    That's what I figured they would do. Now I have to get an LTE phone even though my area probably won't get it for awhile...

    Hasn't been stated yet but, it will go to tiered and the price will change "soon". At least you can keep the price and unlimited for the life of the contract though :)

    My area has 4g. I was surprised because i live in the suburbs. If you want to know, go to verizon, coverage (top right), press 4g, and type your address.

    If the WiMax capability on Sprint is anything to go by, the LTE/4G radio will not be on all the time, and be toggled on when you want to use it. Unless the LTE radio works differently.

    We don't know what the price will be. If you get a 2 year contract, it might be worth getting the phone. But who knows what the actual price will be, e.g. "unlimited" for a short period and then the tiered pricing later. It worries me.
