    You know, like having some kind of program that automatically responds to posts. I don't know how on earth you have so many posts in such a short period of time without being automated!
    Trust me, I have been on here like 24/7 just so I can win this contest. My name is Zack Jaghab. I live in Michigan. I know you (well kind of) CarrieMK, I've helped you with a lot the past week. Hopefully you believe I'm me and not animated ahah

    I'm not bothered by it because AT&T barely even have a LTE network lol and my speeds aren't slow so wheneer iPhone does get LTE it will be a nice boost but it's not really needed right now, IMO.

    The lack of LTE didn't affect my decision at all. I've used an LTE phone (Droid Bionic). The battery life was absolutely dreadful. Call me crazy, but I actually enjoy being able to get through a day without having to charge my phone twice.

    Try using an htc thunderbolt. The battery died on me in 3 hours with nothing syncing and not touching it once. I am in the same boat as you I would rather my phone last all day then have super fast downloads. With the apps and browsing the web the extra speeds aren't needed.

    Hey all. My wife and I are on a family plan on Verizon and she upgraded (she's primary account holder) to the iPhone 4 back in June. We were grandfathered in to the unlimited Data for the next 2 years. I have an HTC Incredible and I had every intention of purchasing the 4s or 5 whichever they released, but when there was no LTE announced I had second thoughts. Having unlimited data I was excited to take advantage of the faster service and not have to worry about going over. I know that the Prime is coming but I was ready for a jump to iOS. Anyone else have second thoughts after there was no LTE announced? My Verizon store is kinda in the middle of nowhere so I'm sure I can get a 4s this Friday but I'm on the fence right now about what to do. FWIW, I have never had a problem with my Incredible. I'm rooted running the GB update and this phone has been great, so I have nothing against Android at the moment.
    The lack of LTE was one factor. Even though it's not widely deployed yet, in the next 2 years, it will be more pervasive. So, getting locked into a contract for those 2 years on a device which doesn't have LTE was not something I wanted to get into. Of course, as others point out, I use WiFi all the time, and that's better than LTE. But if I travel in LTE areas, I want LTE. And to heck with any battery issues. I figure there has to be some knob to twist to shut LTE off, and I could use that to preserve the battery.

    But there were other factors, too. The unchanged screen size was a real bummer. I have a Droid X now, and I got it largely for the screen size. The current iPhone screen is too small for my fat fingers and lousy eyes. So not having a larger screen was a non-starter.

    And, VZW didn't offer any incentives like earlier NE2 dates, and I'm locked up until next spring with my DX. So, since I have to wait anyway, I might as well wait for the iPhone 5, if that ever decides to come out of mythology and enter the real world.

    The screen has a better resolution so it would be easier on your eyes on the iPhone. Why would Verizon give earlier ne2 when the iPhone practically sells itself?

    I understand you guys don't care about 4G right now but if Apple doesn't put 4G into their next iPhone,people will start to get mad and sales will not be so great. The demand for 4G is growing fast,so Apple is going to have to make one sooner or later.

    You want to inject rationality into this? Come on, we're talking iPhones and Verizon. Rationality need not apply.

    Based on benchmark test with iOS5, iPhone beats most of smartphones' speed including Samsung Galaxy 2. If you use iOS5 with At&t HSPA+, it would be fast enough.

    Right now lte is more of a marketing term compared to anything. I mean if you download really large files then yes lte is good to have. For what I do( browsing the web, email, stuff like that) the extra speed really doesn't make it that much more noticeable compared to 3g. I like being able to last all day on the battery without needing a huge extended battery.
