it's not that Apple doesn't want money, it's that only within the past few months have chipsets capable of LTE been available to put in a phone.
since the 3gs and 3g were both designed before this point how do you expect them to have supported something that didn't exist?

Apple has nothing to do about the network. Lay fault at AT&T for getting the iPhone and then getting slammed with much more data usage than they anticipated.
When AT&T finally has a full 4G network, you'll have to buy a phone that supports that, the iPhones (2G/3G/3GS) do not have a radio that can connect to those towers, so you'll need a new device once that happens.

I made the biggest mistake by leaving sprint for this at&t crap just for this overrated Iphone.I will leave at&t in 11 months...Just way to many complaints against this company...And they sell a freaking phone that says 3g but when u have 3 g enabled it drops your call even tho you are in the best 3g zone...That my friends make no damn sense..

My understanding is that AT&T's plan is to roll-out HSDPA and claims a big performance improvement for it. It is also my understanding that the 3GS supports HSDPA.
It is my understanding that AT&T has no plan to roll out LTE in the foreseeable future, in part because there are no LTE handsets, in part because it will cost money.
Verizon is promising LTE carriage in 2010. LTE is more open than CDMA or GSM. It might well open Verizon to a 4G iPhone.

That said, I suppose that one can argue that a 2011 "start" qualifies as "foreseeable," as a "plan."
Observations to the contrary notwithstanding, I am really very tolerant of AT&T and cut them a lot of slack. However, I am reminded of "give them an inch and they will take a mile."
