  • AT&T: "Our iPhone 4S Will be Faster than Verizon's and Sprint's."

    A new iPhone, some new carriers, a new battle that will rage on.

    AT&T has yet another thing to gloat about - besides being able to talk on the phone and surf the web at the same time. The iPhone 4S uses HSPA+ on the AT&T GSM network at speeds of 14.4Mb/s. On Verizon and Sprint - CDMA networks, the iPhone 4S will only achieve download speeds of the iPhone 4's top speed; 7.2Mb/s.

    The current lineup of Carriers leaves you with three choices - AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. The only GSM option is AT&T because T-Mobile bowed out and chose not to support the iPhone in favor of seeing a future in Android devices. If you're wanting the best value out of your network, you may want the unlimited data option from Sprint. Just remember to consider that AT&T will be the only network capable of benefiting from the speed boost from the iPhone 4S's dual antenna system.

    Currently, the speed boost advantage of the iPhone 4S on a 3G network is capable of 4G speeds. Many are disappointed that the iPhone 4S doesn't support 4G, although 4G is a battery sore. I highly suggest this option over 4G simply because you will get comparable speeds and keep the mature battery life of 3G. The only difference is that you will not have a, "4G" icon in the top left of your status bar next to your carrier name. I'm sure they will develop (or have developed) a jailbreak tweak that you can trick yourself into feeling you have 4G, though.

    What network are you planning on using if you get the iPhone 4S? Share below!

      Funny thing is, they seem to have forgoten to add the variable of "Will I even be able to get signal?" as part of the magical equation used to find out the data speed.

      Hey as long as I have the coverage to use up my 2gb I would be happy. Oh wait I do and I have unlimited and I don't ever use more than 2 gb because I connect to wifi at home. Get a life.

      Funny thing is, I have AT&T and I have 3-5 bars generally all day long....

      Since many are not happy about the iPhone 4s maybe a lot of people won't upgrade to it and then AT&T will stop the data throttling...

      Who cares what it's named? It's a new phone with all new hardware and capabilities. That is was constitutes a refresh. There is no such thing as a 1 millimeter thick 4Ghz A5 chip with 8,000GB of RAM.

      The 4S is a GOOD upgrade from the 4, just like the iPhone 5 would be. Gosh.

      I think most people though were hoping to see a completely new iPhone design today that would have all the same hardware improvements as the 4S but also a larger screen...

      Personally I won't be getting the 4s. Siri just isn't impressive enough to upgrade. I like my iPhone 4 enough to wait until the iPhone 5 comes out.

      What's really the difference is iCloud and siri, those two alone are awesome, so internet connection speed makes no difference, half the time I put my phone on AT&T edge to get better call quality

      I for one will be getting the 4S (mostly cause I'm using 3GS). Little disappointed but excited for Siri, faster,etc. Pre ordering my iPhone Thursday night.
