    Something people are forgetting is AT&T themselves said there would be one phone with LTE released by the end of the year (October is sure close to the end of the year) but not a single word more has been released. Now if this were an Android device say made by Samsung or HTC we would surely have heard about it. An Apple iPhone? No chance with Apple being so secretive. Just wanted to toss in another good piece to fuel the fire here.
    Don't forget about the Samsung Galaxy S2 which hasn't been released yet. There has been speculation that this one will be LTE capable, although I have my doubts about it right now. Samsung will make their big announcement about their upcoming new devices on Aug. 29th, so we will know soon enough.

    Well isnt the i5 or whatever it will be called supposed to have a bigger battery anyway? I thought I saw something somewhere maybe I am wrong.
    As with everything else, we'll see when Apple announces the new iPhone.

    I'm guessing that will only be HSPA+ and honestly I'd be crushed if it were the other way around.

    Long term evolution. Is easier terms 4G. Faster than hspa+ which AT&T and tmobile are currently advertising as 4G.

    You are probably right about this. I think Verizon will get the LTE version of the S2 leaving AT&T with 4G. Which means we have an even better shot at seeing LTE on the iPhone since only one phone is coming out with it soon.

    You guys are KILLING me. LTE, 3G and 4G ...... I can only dream about these. My area in the corn fields of Indiana still is on EDGE !!!!! If I drive 10 miles north I can pick up 3G. I wish AT&T would get their act together and bring us up to "real world" LOL. The tower in our little town is supposed to be upgraded to 4G in 1 month. There is talk going around town about having a big party when they throw the switch. Thank goodness I have wifi in my home.

    Throw another log onto the fire. I can't wait for the announcement on Sept. 7th or whenever Steve decides to tell us. The waiting is causing me to lose sleep at night. LOL

    Really can only hope so. If not I will be very disappointed.

    ***I have reason to believe that LTE will not be in this upcoming iPhone. Hope I'm wrong as it's a total bummer.

    Hopefully the new iPhone does have LTE so when I'm eligible for an upgrade sometime next year and they have the next one out, hopefully they'll have the bugs (if there are any) worked out of it.

    I work for Lucent, we make and install the LTE/CDMA/UMTS/GSM equipment that Verizon and ATT use. As of right now we have been doing a ton of LTE builds in the NYC/North Jersey area. ATTs first wave of LTE rollouts will be flipped on around the end of August/Early September.

    I am new here so please don't be too harsh. I'm also using tapatalk and I'm still learning to navigate that as well. Anyways I switched to ATT august 30 last year when my employer switched.

    Will I be able to upgrade to the new iPhone at a $200 discount off of retail? I know that you cannot get the 199/299 unless your two year contract is up. Also would I be better off doing that in store or calling customer service?

    I am fairly pleased with ATT overall, I actually have a stronger signal at my home than I did with vzw. And the employees at my local store are actually pretty pleasant. Thanks in advance for any insight you guys can offer.

    .
    While AT&T hasn't announced one way or the other whether they will allow early upgrades on the iPhone or not, they should if they continue with what they have done in the past. By the time the new iPhone comes out you would have been with AT&T for a little over a year. I believe you will either qualify for a partial or a full discount as long as you agree to a new two year agreement with them. You can try calling AT&T to find out for sure, but I don't think they'll be able to tell you for sure yet. I would just wait until the next iPhone is announced and AT&T makes their announcement on what peoples upgrade status is going to be.

    With an iPhone or any phone on AT&T? Like I said I believe my iPhone dream was shattered but there is an LTE phone coming before the year is over on AT&T.

    Might be a mistake in your case, however I know several Android customers that are more than happy with their LTE devices.

    They must never have had an iPhone, I must have been on some mind-altering substance when I had an Android phone.
