    The lack of punctuation makes my head hurt too much. I can only say: iPhone4 is not 4G. Research.

    you have fallen into the trap that Apple was trying to get the gullable people to do. The "4" in the name doesnt mean 4G.

    And why is this posted in a storm section?

    The iPhone 4 is the 4th generation iPhone, and will works on AT&Ts 3G network. Im not sure if using on Bell, if it will have true 3G capabilities. The only carrier to my knowledge that has 4g is Sprint which is a CDMA carrier.

    OP:

    Your Storm works on Bells older CDMA network.
    The iPhone works on Bells newer HSPA network, which is 3rd generation GSM. (3G). Bell does not have a legacy 2G/Edge network.

    So to answer the question, no, you will not be able to get
    4G service, but Bell's HSPA network is probably faster than
    Sprint's 4G network here in the states.

    Ok Duvi. I'll play.

    Op: When the iPhone 4G launches, likely next summer, Bell may not have their 4G LTE network fired up, but they will have 42Mbs HSPA + service available by then.
