No, the iPhone 4s isn't a 4G phone. It will connect, but with Vzn's 3g, not 4g. You will pay another $10/month for 4G data too. So if you get an iPhone don't get 4G. 4G will only make a difference with certain types of data download, like video/movies/TV streaming. For web pages, email, you won't notice much difference most of the time.

wow the amount of misinformation in this thread is amazing......
at&t "4G" right now is HSPA+ it is available is the USA on limited # of devices.
Verizon uses CDMA for their 3G network which is what the iphone operates on. Verizon uses 4G LTE (GSM network) in the USA and it is active and it is FAST but the iPhone will NOT use the Verizon 4G network.....hopefully next one will!!!
Verizon does NOT charge anything extra for 4G use on their phones. I think Sprint charges $10/month extra to use their 4G (WiMax) network.

I have an iPhone 4S (AT&T) and a Verizon 4G LTE card. The Verizon card rivals my Comcast cable modem for speed and latency. It averages about 14 Mb/s down and 7 Mb/s up. I really don't how anyone could complain about those speeds on LTE...

CDMA Is newer than the old GSM. But older than the newest GSM tech like HSPA+ and LTE. Either way CDMA is on its way out. Soon the entire world will be LTE. Even Sprint who chose WiMax has seen the light. Hopefully the world of batteries will catch up with the world of wireless tech or we will all be wearing car batteries in a backpack just to get a decent days use out of these little computers that we call phones! LOL! :o

Actually.....SIR......I live in the USA, therefore that is what applies to me. I don't care what is what in the other countries because it doesn't apply to me. So 4G for us in this country ..... IS what at&t and Verizon are offering us HERE. why do I care if something g is faster and better if it isn't offered here?

And LTE-Advanced isn't deployed anywhere yet.

There were such requirements for IMT-Advanced, and that IMT Advanced is considered "4G" but that the term 4G is applied to other technologies than 4G as well.
So, in short, the ITU never said that the only 4G technologies are LTE-Advanced and 802.16m, it only said the only IMT-Advanced technologies are LTE-Advanced and 802.16m. 4G remains undefined technically.
As the most advanced technologies currently defined for global wireless mobile broadband communications, IMT-Advanced is considered as
