    How long do you think WiMax will take to pick up? Because 3G has been around since the late 90's i believe and it is just starting to switch. I understand why because of the price and all but do you think if WiMax comes out they will upgrade the iPhone to support it?

    WiMax is owned by Clearwire and partner with Sprint (not sure if still the case). As far as I read recently, Clearwire is struggling to put up towers while losing hundreds of millions of dollars. Plus if you read the review on Clearwire, you would know how horrible it is. IMHO, WiMax is a dead technology. 4G will be LTE, not WiMax.
