    The way these expansions are going I'm starting to think that I'm going to be the last person in the country to get 4g.

    Is it me or are these announcements getting old. Do we really need to make a big deal out of every little city and suburb that gets 4G LTE. Isn't it kind of becoming the norm for service?

    I'm in northern LA county (Lancaster/Palmdale/Santa Clarita) population 479,000, which still has no 4G. But Enterprise, AL with a population 25K has 4G. I might more smart phones in my subdivision than in the entire town. The Verizon announcements are useless..

    FINALLY...I got all excited for the one last month for expanding coverage in the Youngstown/Warren area and new castle area thinking it would include me but apparently it didn't (the expanded Youngstown area is about 2-3 miles away and the coverage map even says I'm in 4g but I know I'm not!!! :confused::eek: I know I tested where I could pick it up lol)
    And now they announce they actually officially announce Sharon where I live

    Thank you Verizon :D

    Its not listed but Mankato, MN got 4G yesterday. About 7:30 pm I was on my phone when signal disappeared, and since its a RAZR I figured it was normal. 20 seconds later 4G LTE was in the corner. Awesome!

    If you're in Hermitage, you have to be close. Does New Castle have 4G now?

    Exactly. I wish verizon would stop advertising 4G service in my area if they can't back it up. Every other commercial is "Nation's largest and most reliable 4G network." Its BS when my capital city can't get reliable 4G coverage but corn fields and highways are lit up in the middle of nowhere. They are sure as hell going to force their customers in to new 4G contracts without actually providing them 4G service.

    A guy in my office just bought a iphone because if he wanted a 4G android device he would have been forced from his unlimited data that he has had for like a decade. Would have been forced from unlimited data to get a current device even though he couldn't fully utilize it. No 4G in our area. If they are the same why do they modify your contract and strip grandfathered unlimited?

    For the money from overages. Now why they told him what they did? Who knows. I would have tried a different store. I would never settle for an iCan't.

    In reading these threads the one thing I always found to be consistent is that VZ stores and reps are never consistent when it comes to service and knowledge about those services. That's why you'll always see someone saying try another store or another rep until you get the answer you want. There is no standard. You just have to find the right person in the right mood.

    They can't...You keep unlimited when you upgrade to 4g until the family share plans come...he got screwed
    All the do is ADD a few things to your unlimited data plan when going from 3g to 4g even in a 3g only area...and those additions (no extra charge) are essentially just to show you will be able to use 4g in a 4g area with your current plan

    I know because this is exactly what I did-upgraded to a 4g phone and unlimited data plan from a 3g phone and unlimited data and I'm in 3g area

    I'd suggest he take it back and call BS on them...
