Also, compare the iPhone to the Veer, which AT&T also claims is a "4G" phone.
That's not really my point, though.
My point is: the fact that AT&T and T-Mobile consider HSPA to be 3G and HSPA+ to be 4G is all kind of a sham. They're not two different technologies. They're not two different networks. They are two very slight variations of the same technology, on the same network. Yes of course HSPA+ is faster, but the real scam is that - so far - AT&T has disabled HSPA+ mode on most of its "4G" phones.
So yes, your Inspire may be operating at HSDPA 14.4 compared to the iPhone's HSDPA 7.2, and in many cases may download faster, but upload is another story, and neither phone is operating in HSPA+ mode.
Is it "4G"? Ask AT&T's marketing department. As they keep adding asterisks and fine print to all of their "4G*" marketing every day, their definition seems to keep changing.
