    I was in the local (Richmond, VA) Verizon store and was told that 4G will be in the Richmond, VA area in November.

    The way I see it it's either,
    A: Verizon is just saying that to attract more customers into buying their 4glte phones
    B: They spoke to soon before flipping on more 4g switches
    or
    C: They're referring to half of the u.s population that is either already with Verizon or half of the population that uses cellular technology.

    If option C even makes any sense. Either way, that's a bold claim by Verizon. Im in Newark, Ohio and haven't seen 4g here yet.

    But then again, the keyword could be 'available' as in not in your city but a neighboring one that you can easily access?

    Albany, NY is live with 4g. It has been on since 2 days ago. Cant wait to see if they release the Bionic in the next 2 weeks or I might have to settle on the Rev or Charge.

    Syracuse, NY's turned on a couple days ago, ahead of schedule. I spend a lot of time in the city, but now I'm hoping it comes to Oswego soon, as that's where I live.

    Oddly enough while in the shipyard, at our contract hotel, for a night I saw a verizon LTE trailer parked in the hotel parking lot last month. Hopefully they WILL be bringing it to the Hampton Roads area.

    At least my hometown (Bakersfield) just got it.

    Thanks.That explains why Birmingham was not on 145 city list but on the coming soon list.Still don't know if B'ham gets it this year or 2012.

    I just hope when B'ham gets turned on the coverage reaches down to cover Chilton county.

    A rep from Verizon told me the same thing.

    Are they keeping this map fairly up to date?

    Seems so. The map shows that we/they have 3G, but when you tick the 4G button, Syracuse lights up, but not so much Oswego.

    It's not listed on Verizon's site as cities with 4G, but their coverage map shows New Hampshire has 4G a few miles on either side of I-93 from the MA/NH border to just south of Manchester. I drove through it today and it's up!
