    So this weekend I went out of town, to Myrtle Beach. While there I did not have 4g service at all. In fact, I did not have 4g coverage until I got closer to home. Is there a reason for this? It was kind of a burden as I've become accustomed to have the speed and reliability of the 4g compared to 3g.

    Anyway, just asking before I head back out of town if there is something I can do to fix this or if its something I'll have to live with.

    You realize 4G coverage is not everywhere yet, right? Yes you will have to live with only 3G in those areas not yet covered, which includes Myrtle Beach.

    Thanks for the condescending response.

    Well, he is correct. I think VZW has a coverage map if you want to see where 4g is available prior to a trip (you know... so you can plan to have a valium on hand for dealing with your ridiculously slow 3g speeds... lol...)

    Now see, I didn't know that and I can't believe Winston-Salem has been hooked up the new technology before a more populated area. You have been much more helpful, and made me laugh at the same time lol

    Kind of a weird complaint... But I read all of the above posts so I understand. The city with 4G support closest to my house is at least 1 hour + 30 min away, a city I never visit and have no intention to just for 4G. Maybe I could suggest you that try scanning for public WiFi hotspots which are, believe it or not, still quite abundant. But if you're tethered to the short wireless range of a hotspot you're not getting primary average of long range towers. Sorry that's all I got.

    Also thanks now I even further out of the technology loop lol. I haven't even tested it, and you've been accustomed to expecting it mostly wherever you go. Yikes.

    Sorry I realize I came off a little harsh, however part of me was thinking you had to of been referring to some kind of phone problem as most people understand 4G is not everywhere when they purchase the phone. At the very least it is something that can be googled within seconds (using 4G) and under a minute (with 3G) without posting a thread about.

    That said, I apologize for the tone.
