Would one of you people read the box. The phone is the iPhone 4S. The letter G is not included in its name anywhere. The 4S is the second iteration of the the iPhone 4, which was the 4th generation of iPhone.

Second, the iPhone 4S for ATT is HSPA+, which by the new definition is a 4G phone. The phone does not say 4G on the screen because Apple is waiting for an LTE version so that it does not have to have totally different software for ATT versus the CDMA carriers.

Third, as of January 5, 2012, ATT has opened up LTE to 26 markets covering oveer 74 million consumers. I have an LTE phone, live in anLTE market and it is VERY fast in comparison to 3g. And if the phone is not in anLTE market, it falls back to HSPA+ which is up to 3 times faster than 3G.

I swear that some of the people who post on this forum must sell lawn mowers or something, because they have no knowledge of what is going on with ATT, or the rest of the industry.
