They are doing the right thing. Let's get everyone off 3G so they can use that spectrum for 4G. I hope they don't get rid of 1X for voice because that could be bad.

because they like being behind the curve. Razz
I'd hope blackberry would at least release a 4G devices, whether it be LTE or Sprint's Wi-Max since LTE is yet to be seen on Sprint.

So if you're not using much you probably don't care if what you do use is the ...
All good points, but...

I bet whats holding most people back from moving to 4G devices so quickly are things like being locked into existing contracts, availability only in Android devices, and like it or not lack of 4G in any iPhone which makes up...
Just because you have an LTE phone doesn't mean you have to use LTE all the time, if the LTE is 'wonky' or it hurts battery life, you can turn it off and use LTE only when you need it.
