    Read wrong. It does not have 4G LTE. It has 3G and will switch to EDGE automatically on AT&T's network when needed.

    I haven't seen HSPA+ speeds in San Diego when running speed tests on my phone in and around town.

    Yup. AT&T advertises HSPA+ devices as "4G" but devices that are actually capable of 4G are labeled as "4G LTE". Confusing marketing.

    That's what AT&T called HSPA+ before T-Mobile stated the whole faux 4G ad campaigns.
    I have a Nokia N75 that is an HSPA+ phone and it shows a 3G+ icon when using an HSPA+ signal.
    My Atrix just shows an H+ when using HSPA+.
    My Samsung Focus has a 3G+ indicator as well.
