    there are a few people that got a ota already but like with all of them there only given to a few people then to everyone eles but no one knows really when that will be...and no the phone has to have the 4g software and the d3 doesn't have it so it wont ever get 4g unless they release a updated version like they did the d2g

    yea that was a big deal breaker for a lot of people not having the 4g on here but then again its not a lot of places right now either...and the bionic will have 4g and "should" be released sep 8th

    currently we dont have 4g service here yet so that wasnt a big concern for me when i purchasing the droid 3 i would like to have a 4g phone but i cant work a virtual keyboard have to have a slide out physical keyboard so does anyone know when a 4g phone with slide out keyboard will be released the droid bionic is all touch screen unless there has been major changes made to it.

    I feel ya, a 4G slider would be my dream phone. I have the D2G because of it's physical keyboard, and i wanted to get the D3 because of the keyboard, but the phone is lacking is way too many areas to upgrade when all the new goodies are on their way soon. I really dont want a touch only phone but if i dont see one on the way in the near future I might just suffer with the Droid Prime because it going to be amazing, actually the Prime won't be so hot when my update is ready.

    The D3 doesn't have 4G hardware‚Äč. It can't be upgraded to 4G with a software update.
