    Itll be 4G on AT&T as well as tmobile. (Assuming it is released on at&t)

    Yes it is coming to AT&T and yes it will be HSPA+ which is the early 4G networks being deployed by TMO and AT&T.

    Thanks for the replys... Can't wait for this device... I'm using the 9000 still... This is phone is still a beast for me... 9780 had to many issues for my taste so I sold it and went back to the 9000 until this phone is released

    am i one of the only few happy people with 3g? :-)

    where i live the average internet speed is 2.5mbps, i get less than 1mbps :-(

    so my connection speed on my phone of about 5mbps is epically fast for me, only restriction is larger file sizes automatically wait till i have a wifi connection

    Gotta love Marketing folks! Think of HSPA+ as 3.5G and LTE as 4G. The latter won't be rolled out until 2012.

    The technobuffulo review made mention of HSPA+ on the Torch2 only in reference to whether the set would be setup for HSPA+ or not.

    One carriers 4G is not the same as another carriers 4G. You really have to do your homework.

    Actually both technologies at their current speeds are about as "4g" as each other i.e. both of them are marketing based terms.

    You are right.... but Telus here in Canada says now they have HSPA+ at 3.5G and in the near future, they will have HSPA+ 4G..... wired eh?

    When I had att for 18 months last year, the 3G signal on att in my area (NYC metro) was atrocious....can you imagine 4G? Its only been 6 months or so since I dumped att and after seeing how much time my phone spent on EDGE traveling in and around NYC, I can only imagine the forums will explode in anger. Should be a good show, I'll get my popcorn.

    The gaggle of cronies who came up with the original 4G spec got rolled by the carriers. They agreed to let them call the faster than 3G stuff (LTE included) 4G.
