Really wanted Unlimited on 4G device,but couldn't do it
The main reason I switched to VZW was to get one of the new LTE devices, but after handling them in the store, I had to go back to my iPhone 4. The Charge was beautiful and so was the Thunderbolt. They are perfect if you have a desk job with charger, but I'm on the move. Case closed.

I've never had an issue with battery life on smartphones. I had the Evo and while most people complained about the battery life I never had issues with it. I always was able to make it through a whole day easily. Same with my iPhone 4 now.

I only briefly played with an android device, but my wife and daughter have them, and all my wife does is make a few calls and a few texts and her t-bolt wont make it through the day. My daughter has a Droid X, and her face is in it ALL day, and she carries 2 extra batteries with her as well as a car charger.
Myself coming from BB, i am used to charging every other or third day. But with the ip4 if i forget to charge at not it's not a serious issue as i feel it would make it through day without dying.

It's all give and take. You want a 4+ inch screen, widgets and apps with the ability to constantly send/pull data from the cloud, and true multitasking, you give up battery life. You want to be an early adopter of LTE you have a source to recharge or an extra battery. I made that choice because the LTE data was just too good to go back to 3G. Matter of fact, I dropped my home internet service from Charter and tether all my devices off my Thunderbolt when at home. The LTE is on average about twice as fast as my home internet was. Hopefully Verizon doesn't pull that same BS AT&T did about tethering.

How is it abuse? It's OUR data, we pay for an UNLIMITED amount of data on the UNLIMITED data plan, who are they to decide how we use it? If they feel that way about it i guess they shouldn't offer unlimited data plans... Ohhh thats right, their getting rid of it.
And besides its free right now, so no abuse is being done.Semper Fidelis my fellow "Teufel Hunden"

I'm in the same position as you, but I just bought an LTE Mifi, it does the job very well just you can't get unlimited data with Mifi's
Plus I can't stand Android at all :PGoldDust and PlatinumRed... Now on Cydia!

I'm not, but so what if I was. Last I checked I was paying for unlimited internet. If Verizon wants to put a soft cap on that, that's their prerogative. For anyone to think that the carriers are coming along with their tiered data plans because of heavy bandwidth users shows a complete lack of understanding of the carrier's business model and their plan to nickel and dime customers to no end. ADecreasing service and jacking prices, plain and simple.
