4G upgrade in iPhone will not convince me to upgrade from the "4" mostly because we won't have this so-called 4G every where.... If that were true that AT&T got 4G running every where just the 1 feature would convince me...

Oh and another thing for those talking about IPhone 4G.
LTE and 4G both have an all ip based network. No more calls going through dedicated circuit switch network. This poses a problem because no longer you have a standard for phone calls, anything can be used for making calls from skype, sip solutions to operator specific solutions.
This makes it hard for phone makers because they may have to comply with lots of different standards which may be impossible or pick one (or a few) and risk users having limited service on some conditions (like calling someone on a different network using a different standard or when roaming on an operator using a different standard). There are currently discussions ongoing on what should the voice-over-LTE standard be however nothing is decided yet.
This is one of the reasons there are virtually non existent 4G phones (the evo 4G uses wimax, uncertain how voice is done) and there most likely will be none until this issue is fixed.

So I'm wondering, since I switched to AT&T from T-Mobile, I get 3G speeds now on my iP4--I'm super satisfied and excited at how fast my Internet is--if 4G is the in thing now like 3G was, how fast do we need to go? If 4G is faster than what I already have, will there be something faster than 4G? Or do you think 4G is fast enough for us to be satisfied? Cuz I really can't see why I need anything faster than 3G as it loads everything on my phone nearly instantly.

Essay: 3G and me
Selling you “3G” — well, that’s a lot easier to live up to. And it changes every year. So don’t tell me how many G’s your new phone has. We’ve loved and lost so many G’s at this point. Tell me you got a new phone where you pay to get 1 Mbps and 100 ms rtt to major exchange points. When the market moves forward enough to make that a reality, that’ll be a generation worth celebrating.

expand the 3G network and increase bandwidth so we don't have to have download caps

Damn, I hope it comes to my area quickly

Personally I would say that we have a good enough network when I can give up my fixed line at home and just hook my desktop to a mobile subscription permanently.

They couldn't make existing phones work on a LTE network via a software update even if they wanted to.
That's like flaming computer maker for not giving a software upgrade to make your 3.5 disk reader work with CDs.

Sounds Good!!! I've never had any issues with AT&T either. I've been a customer for over ten years, there's a stretch of road on my way to Richmond, VA there I have no service for about 5 miles that's about it.
