The Most Over-Hyped Features
4G isn't true 4G but also is not overhyped

Anywho -- there are certainly many things being hyped and over-hyped by carriers and phone manufacturers alike but the idea that 4G might not be objectively better than 3G I find to be untrue in real-world experience. I may not have 4G coverage absolutely everywhere on my Sprint Overdrive, but to my sheer delight I find I do in most of the use cases I apply it to and when I do, it is fa...
How stupid. Not you, the phone. I hate the iphone. I'm not a droid snob, in fact I gave the iphone a really big chance. It let me down on so many levels. It works better if jail broken to be honest.
Apple, to me, is a bass ackwards company with great marketing strategy. Of course, you might want to buy a couple shares of Apple stock soon ... like I said, great marketing strategy ... but the iphone on Verizon is going to dissapoint people who jump ship from AT&T on many more levels. If you thought the iphone couldn't multi-task on AT&T just wait until you try and go on the 3G network and get a call. Yeah. AT&T's network allows this. Verizon, no...
You're right about the iPhone being disappointing to those who switch over from AT&T. Not only won't they be able to talk and surf at the same time but they'll also notice that Verizon's EVDO speeds are slower than AT&T's HSPA at it's worse. Especially in major cities like New York. My friend can barely get 1mbps with Verizon's EVDO in midtown at times with his Droid X.
But I just dont get Apple with this though. They said they didnt want to put out an LTE phone just yet because they supposedly weren't ready to make co...
Then VZW and Apple dropping the ball on data is a real dumb move. How many sad faces are we going to see walking out of VZW stores when the reps say "No, we are sorry you cannot make calls and surf at the same time.."? C'mon VZW you trash ATT's network(with good reason) but then can't offer a phone with a similar option... "Just wait, Mr Customer, the new iphone will be 4G". Yeah in 6 months after Mr Customer signed a 2 year contract with someone else because you fumbled, VZW.
I am now eligible for a new upgrade, but no way will I upgrade another phone on VZW's 3G speed. I'd rather switch to Sprint or T-mobile.
