Still guys its we want it, we don't need it.
Some more bashing, bring it on.
I didn't say that 4G wouldn't do anything for me, and I didn't say 4G wouldn't do anything......I was asking what 4G would do for me.
I've been told that 4G will be faster than my wifi. I wonder how anyone can say THAT, since I don't think I mentioned ow fast my broadband wifi was.
The other question I've asked (besides What will 4G do for me??) is......how will 4G benefit me when I face data caps?? How will I be doing "better" on 4G if I hit my data cap with it in 3 or 4 days...and with wifi I'd NEVER hit a data cap???
Everything is based on data speed, we're arguing apples and oranges. 4g "should" be faster than your current 3g. Could be double, triple, could be less than double, the location and traffic will effect it all. As far as data caps go, your requested data will be the same just slower to load. If you order 2 burgers from Wendy's one day it will take 5 minutes (4g) the next day it could take 10 minutes (3g) you still got and charged for two burgers. Some of us are impatient and don't like looking at the buffering circle spin. So be it.
Anyone that says they can't listen to music or watch YouTube videos of cats playing the violin have slow 3g. I can do both on 3g with no buffering.
Still we want it, we don't need it.
I'll stop here before in retaliation I bash on people that can't or won't respect people that have patience or don't have 4g.
On an ending note I'm still waiting for "5g"
I'm sitting here at my local waterhole, 3g loads just as fast as 4g the only difference is on 4g the avatars are displayed, like my wet #$%@&$. On 3g the avatars will not display, only the generic one.
Does it matter to me? Not.
Here's an idea:
Who cares? Stay on wifi, 3G, 4G or even 1x if it makes you happy.
According to the census bureau (going to round the numbers to the nearest even number, so if you want to bash post the actual number to show me you did your research) 24 percent are under 18 YOA (years of age), 14% or over 65 YOA that leaves 62% left. The latter could care less (personal opinion based on observation), the former would absolutely feel the need the have 100 meg speed ( another personal observation), but would fail to fill out a survey because it's a "waste of my precious nano seconds".
I'm opining in a respectable manor please show me the same courtesy.
Exactly whatever floats your boat.
If 4g means the world to you the worse thing you can do is encourage more people to jump aboard D'oh.
what does this survey do exactly? LTE is more efficient in the airwaves, carry more data, and is generally what carriers are moving on to in the future. it is the tech of the future. regardless of the fact that people want it or not, LTE will be the future so that the carriers can still cater to our grandkids in the future.
I too was guessing that in the future 4g will replace 3g and 4g will be replaced by something faster and current 3g won't exist or be available anymore

That wraps it up.
Idk what happened to my post. Smh
Oops...didn't realize I was "arguing"...LOL
I don't have 4G, haven't even seen 4G in operation....I was just asking "what will 4G do for me" if I upgrade to it.
I thought I explained that in my particular situation the vast majority of data use with my 3G phone is when it's linked with high speed broadband wifi. If I upgraded to a 4G phone, the way I use my phone wouldn't change.....it would still be used mostly on my high speed wifi (as my other gear like my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, my Kindle).
So...upgrading to a 4G phone wouldn't really "do anything for me"......since I'd be using it on wifi the vast majority of the time anyway.
The concern I had with upgrading to 4G has been that I will be forced to move from my unlimited data plan to a plan with data caps so that if my "behavior", how I use my phone for data, changes....the faster speed would only run me up against my caps in a BIG hurry. If my "behavior" (the way I use my phones) doesn't change..... moving from an unlimited plan to a plan with caps and 4G, the caps would still be as meaningless to me as they seem to be now since I use nearly no 3G data.
Of all the replies I've gotten.....only one guy REALLY answered my question (What will 4G do for me??) when he said that with 4G it was now possible to be on a voice call and to use data at the same time. THAT feature is pretty cool.
I think, if my situation was different, 4G would be great for me like it seems it's great for a lot of people. I travel a bunch....but when I travel it's by motorcycle so I don't have "layover" time where I'm sitting around waiting where 15 minutes of HBO would be my thing. Seems like if I'm not close to home (my own high speed wifi), I'm on the road between wifi hotspots.....
What I do see here though.....is if I had a 4G phone, I wouldn't have to put up with some of the slow ass wifi I run into sometimes at motels. When travelling I'd be able to buy a higher cap for that month from Verizon and use my phone's 4G to run my own hotspot for my GT2 7.0 or my netbook (if I'm in an area with LTE).
Thanks to those who tried to answer my questions....and a shrug to those who thought I was slamming or criticizing 4G in some way, I wasn't...I was asking questions to help me make upcoming decisions on hardware replacement.
Steve, arguing was should have been comparing, oops. Now I get that you understand the data speed thing (my folks don't grasp any thing with a CPU) sorry.
The really cool thing is you can video chat on 4g, doesn't impress me much. I don't like looking at people when we are lying to each other. You can also send live video from your camera to wherever.
