    4G = LTE, HSPA+, and WiMax. Read some Wiki on it, HSPA+ might not be as fast as LTE at the moment, but maybe not for long. Don't underestimate it either, its still fast.

    So yes, as a HSPA+ device, it is '4G'.

    Huh! I think its only few carriers which has a faster network than 3G but the hardware doesn't supports 4G network on a 9900...

    Yeah, but you are actually connected @ 3.3 - 3.5G

    HSPA to LTE (Real 4G) is like going to buy a engagement ring from De Beers, but passing a Walmart and and getting it there.

    None support 4G. You might have 4G available in your area but blackberry doesn't use 4G at all. I'm glad I don't have 4G around me. Drains battery wayy too fast. Which is a huge issue with these 99xx phones

    Although it does not have LTE, the 9900 IS a 4G device. Read my post above.

    Some of you guys clearly don't know what you're talking about.

    Currently, advertised 4G is really just late-stage 3G. The two formats designated by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as “true 4G technologies” are:

    LTE Advanced (Long Term Evolution Advanced)

    WiMAX Release 2

    There aren’t any large-scale deployments of either of these. However, their predecessors — LTE and WiMAX — are currently available.

    As the wireless companies advertise it, 4G consists of three different technologies:

    HSPA+ — This is more like an upgrade to regular 3G. HSPA+ offers faster speeds, but that take advantage of the same infrastructure. The first HSPA+ deployments began in 2008, and are now widely available throughout the world. T-Mobile’s “4G” network in the U.S. is HSPA+. Likewise, the first stage in AT&T’s 4G roll-out includes HSPA+.

    LTE — LTE, or Long Term Evolution, doesn’t fully comply with 4G requirements. But it is what most people consider 4G. This is the system being adopted by Verizon, Metro PCS and AT&T in the U.S. Most European carriers have also committed to LTE. It is upgradable to LTE Advanced — so once that kicks in, it will be easy to upgrade an LTE phone into full-on 4G. Verizon started deploying its LTE network in December 2010. AT&T started rolling out 4G LTE in the second half of 2011. AT&T has a HSPA+ deployment, which it will use as a backup to LTE. Both AT&T and Verizon expect to have the bulk of their LTE deployments in place by the end of 2013

    My wife and I have 9900's and both say 4G by the signal meter. I had a 9810 for a day that read HSPA+. Same SIM card and network.
    Why would the 9810 indicate HSPA+? Does that mean anything?

    H+, HSPA+ are basically 3.5G. Until carriers have a very good ping (120 ms or less) and unthrottled speeds (in Kilo/Mega bytes, 256-768 mB/s, 64-128 kB/s), it won't really be 4G.

    But that's just me. Not too much of an expectation, but I'm waiting patiently.
