    I have had so many people ask me about this. Far and away some really sketchy advertising.
    BOTH PHONES MUST START A NEW 2 YEAR AGREEMENT.
    That should be in BOLD not in tiny fine print.

    if they said the x is compatible with the 4g network they didn't lie. The phone will work with the 4g network but you wont get 4g speeds.

    I agree...quit trying to scam your customers...make the fine print bold and show us that your trying to be honest rather than devious.
