That's a bunch of garbage. Hopefully they'll wait until the end of the summer so my contract can run out!

I think that is very un called for Verizon should not do that. My grandfather and I have AT&T and he has unlimited data from the iPhone 2. He now has a LTE phone and is fine. I see verizon is get more greedy every day although I shouldn't say AT&T is much better.

Verizon is a bunch of BS. But also long as you never "upgrade" your plan or phone you will be able to keep it. For now I'll be just purchasing phones off contract. That way I can leave VZW at a moments notice

Most likely the next phone or second will be "5G".

Honestly i highly doubt that since AT&T isnt even gonna be done setting up 4G LTE til the end of 2013 of the beginning of 2014 and the current phone isnt even labled as an actual 4G phone just has the speeds

I don't know. I just guess since about every two phones the generation gets bumped up one.

lol it is? since when? the update where they changed the H+ icon to a 4g one?

seriously no iphone is 4g capable, no lte = no 4g simple as that

ON-TOPIC:
when i want to upgrade im gonna leave verizon and buy off contract with the tmobile $30 walmart plan with voip calling via google voice

unlimited everything for $30 a month, i think yes

really, hspa+ isnt 4g, plus that only applies to the att iphone, the verizon one is only capable of 3g due to cdma limitations

like i said the iphone isnt 4g capable and it might be with the new one but as of right now, its only 3g and it always will be

AT&T lied.

Their iPhone's "4G" is only the HSPA+, which is a SLIGHTLY (not much) faster 3G. So you kinda get 3G and a half, if even xD.
The newest one SHOULD have 4G LTE.

i work for verizon as an indirect agent...the reason they are getting rid of it is to make room for their newer 4g lte phones and for their recently released "share everything" plan
