    I live in a small town in South Carolina so I am sure 4g will not come here for awhile. Heck sometimes I can't even get 3g. So I will be fine with 3g. I would love to get my hands on the Droid X2 when it comes out. I love my DX. I will be excited to see what the changes will be.

    I'd also wager a guess that the reason Alltel got the Merge, is because VZW didn't. Considering that the phone didn't get canned on Verizon until just before its rumored launch, there were probably quite a number of these devices already produced by HTC and ready for shipment - and that probably required a commitment from Verizon to purchase them. When Verizon decided not to release them on their network, they needed a different avenue to unload them... or the Alltel brand, which Verizon owns and operates on Verizon's towers. All they needed to do was remove the Verizon branding at the top of the device (not that hard to do) and switch the displayed branding to Alltel within the OS (again, not hard to do).

    Look at the leaked pictures of what Alltel is getting. It is identical to the device VZW was supposed to get except for the empty space at the top (where the VZW logo was) and the Alltel branding within the OS. It even still has the VZW red accents not seen on any other Desire Z variant - if it was really supposed to be an Alltel device, shouldn't those accents be blue, if anything.

    Anyway, this thread is about the upcoming Droids... so here's to the Droid 3 having vanilla Android and an unlocked bootloader... wishful thinking, I'm sure; but cheers just the same :beer2:

    That was only what I was told by a woman that works the corporate side of verizon that I know personally. All 4g phones will be 4g enabled on activation.

    I HOPE SO! 3G is fine for me. I only stream online radio and watch very few YouTube videos. So what I get is perfect. I could use a price drop on 3G. But I doubt this will happen for a while. 4G will have to go up first.

    I am also looking for those, plus a front facing camera. So if the DX2 has a dual core with the same camera, FM radio plus FFC, I'm in. Saw Portland OR is not getting 4G this year.

    They most certainly can. They made you pay for 3G if it wasn't available in your rural area. Just because 4G is not available in your area doesn't mean that you don't travel to areas that have 4G 5 days a week on business. And where do you get the idea that they can't make you pay for it in any case? They make you pay for 3G data if you get a smartphone. If the phone is capable then you will pay for the service. In any case, it appears that 4G will be the same cost as 3G, so it makes no difference if this holds.

    It's not the same, data is different. Better/ faster streaming video, video chatting, downloads tethering, net surfing are just some of the benefits of 4g.
