    Well they may be instituting the 4g network in your area now. They have been slowly adding more and more cities without even mentioning it.

    When I was looking at for a new phone I had mentioned to the sales person where I live that I really would like to get the Thunderbolt, but 4G wasn't listed as being available in our area. Turns out I was wrong. He said it had been on in our area about 2 weeks, that the Verizon 4G coverage map was sometimes 30-90 days behind. I was pleasantly surprised.
