    I got my phone the other day and I barely have 3g at home. I'm usually on wifi at home and at work. Now I'm at work for the first time since getting my Rezound and all I can say is WOW! This is even a weak 4g signal (95 dBm). This is better than my Comcast wifi at home. I can't wait until I get 4g near my house.

    Welcome to the dark side. If you don't have unlimited data...keep an eye on your usage. It's addictive.

    Thankfully I'm grandfathered in to unlimited data but the only thing as impressive as the 4g speed is the battery drain. I think I'll stick to wifi unless I need the speed.

    4G is a battery destroyer. i have a good 4G signal at my place in jersey city but wifi is noticeably faster when browsing the web. also on comcast. 4g is off on my phone 99% of the time.

    For me, I can't help (ab)using what I pay for. 4G all day, every day.

    The funny thing is idiotekniQues, you're in Jersey City and Mr Smith, you're in Philly and both you guys are enjoying 4g. And here I am in SNJ (Gloucester Co) with no 4g and weak 3g at home and weak 4g and 3g at work. Hey VZ, did you forget about us in the heart of Jersey? Give us some love down here, will ya?

    there is good 4G coverage in Newark, Hoboken & Jersey City. But when I go 18 miles west to my folks in Wayne, no 4G. I guess it hasn't made it too far out in the NY Metro area yet.

    I live in West Caldwell and I found it extremely ironic that there is a very popular VZW store right on Rt. 46 in Wayne past Willowbrook that does not have 4G signal. There appears to be no 4G anywhere west of the Verona area or north of it. Wish I had it in West Caldwell because the internet at my house is slow.

    Well I'm totally jealous I've had my Rezound since late December and have yet to be on 4g even when I drove my wife to Ft Lauderdale to a meeting in the corporate Verizon building still had no 4g connection in their own facility.....but I love this phone nonetheless

    You might have been there during a national 4g outage. If memory serves it was Dec 28 and for a few days more in spots in late December.
