    Default Anyone have 4g working at full capacity on 9860

    My phone company recently upgraded their service to 4g and I am unable to utilize it because I bought my phone from Vodaphone and there appears to be some compatibility issues. So I'm stuck on EDGE.

    Which carriers supports 4g for this phone?

    Huh? Yeah they do... all depends on the carrier's definition of 4G. The 9860 is HSPA+ compatible, which is being called 4G by essentially all but the CDMA carriers.

    @muddasick, if your phone is only connecting at EDGE speeds, that has me wondering what bands your carrier uses. You'll need to check into that. But I have a 9860 and get HSPA+ (a.k.a. 4G) on my carrier (Telus).

    didnt your question get answered already?????? your phone WONT work with your carriers 4G and you will need an at&t, rogers or bell 9860 with the 850/1900 HSPA+ bands. vodafone and tmobile branded ones wont work with your network.

    is my 9860 4G capable???

    crossposting is against forum rules. you couldve asked which carriers phone to go with in your other thread.

    um......the 9860 and 9900 support HSPA+, which some carriers are considering a bolt on 4G network and marketing it as such. so "technically" yea they support 4G. just not a true LTE 4G. its a stop-gap in between networks, but is faster than 3G.

    keep in mind its only HSPA+, not true 4G LTE.

    You're going to hate me, but technically, not even LTE is true 4G. That said though, they have officially permitted both LTE and HSPA+ to be called 4G, so...

    AT&T told me in my area we have 7 of 12 towers up with LTE 4G and my speeds on device are showing good speed on down and up. So I really don't know if I'm in stop gap or what.

    your Torch doesnt even have an LTE radio so you arent even using LTE even if its available in your area.
