    Thats what I was going to say...

    Go ahead and sign up for the 3G iPhone now, because by the time your two-year contract is up, AT&T's LTE network may just be useable.

    Hopefully they get a better jump on it than they did 3G. AT&T had it's ass handed to it by Sprint and Verizon this go around... Imagine how bad T-Mobile users feel :).

    Honestly I hope you are using 4g as a synonym for merely the next version of the iphone.

    It will be anywhere from 2-5 years before the 4g network becomes as prevelant as the 3g is now. and people are still complaining about how lacking the 3g coverage is.

    And honestly I don't see a big draw for 4g. 3g is PLENTY fast enough for a phone. especially when they get reception up in all areas. and i don't even want to THINK about what the battery life would be... :(

    I don't want to be torrenting on my iPhone because I am almost certain it will murder my brand new device :D. And after discounts from Verizon on our home phone service, the DSL works out to be almost free. If it was dropped, our phone service would go up in price, almost matching the current bill. You see my depressing dilema? lol

    Also, consider the fact that the 3G network CAN work faster than it currently is. (In the U.S. anyway.) I'd rather see them work on improving the 3G speed and coverage than putting in yet ANOTHER network so soon.

    But then, the O.P. may simply mean "3rd iPhone" by his statement. In which case, good for him. I'm sure there are others out there.

    I'm willing to bet the OP doesn't know 4G network from 4th Gen. Apple has many confused buy naming their 2G (2nd Gen) iPhone 3G (after the network and not the generation).

    I gave the OP the benefit of the doubt and assumed he mentioned the "4G" moniker out of sarcasm

    Yeah, I think that's the real answer.

    I believe he is mocking all the "waiting for 32 GB people" and has intentionally made the post look dumb by putting in a technical gaffe (confusing 3G for G3 and assuming that 4G is the next phone, not the next network) as a way of showing how little he thinks of the "waiting for the next one" crowd.

    Dude, AT&T just spent $ Billions on a 3G network and is continuing to add new antennas every month. There is no way in heck that AT&T is going to come out with a 4G network this soon. It's probably going to be at least 2-3 years before we see a 4G network. And, AT&T just signed with Apple to extend the exclusivity agreement even longer. Even if a competitor develops a 4G network, the iPhone will only be made in 3G because of the agreement with AT&T. Anyone who skips the iPhone 3G because they are waiting for a 4G is going to be the only one that is losing out.

    Forget 4G. Wait until AT&T rolls out the 5G network in 2015 then send your Honda robot to wait in line for you.

    The 4G iPhones are the ones that will attempt to take over the world. I'm pretty sure Steve Jobs knows this and that's why he's saving the real technology for the 5G iPhones or as I like to call them, "The iDefenders". Anyone stupid enough to wait for the 4G iPhones will surely regret their decision when they have to wait and purchase the 5G iPhone just to restore order to their household.

    You might have it right ogdogg lol now you should go buy the domain name Idefender.com or theidefender.com then you can sell it to apple for 100 million dollars when the time comes. Then buy a couple Iphone 5Gs and a Rocket Ship and fly out of the catastrophe that earth will be by then and go to the moon and have the Iphones build a new city then you will have to start from scratch.....Oh and maybe you should take cindy crawford with you.... oh and of course jessica alba for backup! :)

    bringing this slightly back to a serious thread, and not bothered making a new one, bbc news 24's "click" show had a report that lg, samsung and some others are currently road testing a new mobile service. its regularly getting download speeds of 50mbps and upload of nearly that too! apparently 3 years away from putting into phones, at the moment the kit is about half the size of a macbook!.......so a bit big!
