No. 3G speed with T Mobile on my phone was fine. Sprint's 3G sucks however.

If I cared about 4G I would have bought a phone a couple months ago that was 4G capable. I bought the iphone because that is what I wanted. Simple really.

I guess I'm supposed to find out what is important to others and get the phone that does what they like? Umm no. I'll get what I like and feel is important. Thanks though.

You know, I'm a bit curious about why iphones are dual core, and all of the hype about quad core in the iphone 5 (which android already has by the way.) The reason why, is that in spite of having multiple cores, iOS isn't capable of multitasking. Sure you can have multiple apps open at once, but only one of them can actually be doing something at a time.

I could imagine maybe some apps out there being multi-threaded, so there may be *some* use for dual core, but quad core? What use is it?

Well, I think I already know: apple users are attracted to fluff.

Well I'd like to hear it from the iphone users themselves.

If they would add the iPhone market right off the start, the network would be overwhelmed.
Actually the verizon LTE network already is overwhelmed in many places, e.g. new york. This is why verizon is making a huge deal about capping their users data consumption and charging overages.
