and I was blown away!!!

Really, I clicked on a link and the page or picture would just pop right up on the screen.

I cant wait for the iPhone/AT&T to offer these speeds in my area!

I thought Edge to 3G was a big difference (and it was) but the 4G I just played with was amazing!

It is amazing. I have a thunderbolt, which is super fast data speed and processor wise, but battery sucks, and I like my iPhone better.

That about sums up Verizons LTE network. Very fast but it drains the battery just as fast so you can't even use your phone.
That's why I like my Verizon 4G LTE mifi. Doesn't affect my iPhone or iPad battery at all. It also bypasses 3G restricted apps.

I think it was the Thunderbolt I may have tried...

A battery that dies so quick would be frustrating. Apple has always made battery life a priority so when iPhone meets 4G I'm sure it will be great!

I hope we are pleasantly surprised in the next couple of months with the new iPhone!

The LTE is NOT all of the problem. The droid charge keeps going all day in the battery. HTC phones are well known to suck on battery. Only recent ones, well after the thunderbolt, have actually got a ok, to decent battery life. Not to mention the screen is much larger, thus requiring more battery
