    Comment about only 3g on 4g phones made no sense. It made me:icon_ cry:.

    Skype functionality whether on 4G or Wifi is not working on demo phones so I doubt it will work out of the box. Video calling, as stated above, is only available through 4G and Wifi due to the speed (just like any other phone that isn't an ingredient in a fruitcake...)

    Also, I've been a loyal VZW customer for 11 years, but I gotta say that if you have strong AT&T service in your area (which obviously not all people do), they are looking like the much better choice right now. ATT has iPhone, Atrix, and Inspire. VZW has iphone and a ton of devices end-of-lifing at the end of the month. What up VZW? Better get on that.

    ATT and VZW run on different networks, maybe that has something to do with it (GSM vs. CDMA). Honestly I don't really know, I just heard somewhere else also that you could not do video chat on VZW with 3G. I could be wrong though.

    Haha, that's funny. I totally agree, but at the same time, we don't have anything that can compete with those last 2 devices yet. X is good, but not great with what's coming. Fascinate? (lol, no thanks). Inc? Too old. And BTW, I'm not threatening to jump ship, I was just making a point and expressing frustration.

    So I bet you all remember this tweet "Many have waited for the Verizon #iPhone. Some looking for the #4G #LTE HTC #Thunderbolt. May be sooner than we expected!" -@verizon wireless. What ever happened to that? I'm so sick of verizon, apple, and best buy toting with us! The consumers true friend is htc whose threatening verizon. Gah we all just want a new Phone so just release it! ... Ahh I feel better now. So no press release today either?

    P.s. my iPod touch' s front face camera works regardless of any 3G/4G network or wifi ... Just saying. You're digital camera doesn't need a network to use it.

    I still find it hard to believe that the issues could be that big, the EVO has been out how long? Running on sprints CDMA 4G network, I really don't think HTC dropped the ball on this one, if anything Big Reds network is not ready for prime time!

    I know. I'm just saying. Those are pretty terrible phones in my opinion. In a test of Atrix vs Inspire, the Inspire is almost as fast and doesn't have many laggy moments like the Atrix. And well... Atrix is to Thunderbolt as Bionic is to Inspire.
