    If the only option was to have LTE for the US market, then it would be suicide for the iPhone in the rest of the world. Better to wait until it can support worldwide LTE

    This is only true on Verizon right now.

    If you're on AT&T they are still letting you keep your unlimited when you go to 4G (though you have a 5GB soft cap).

    That's what I'm really concerned about. My $20 unlimited plan was increased when I got the 3GS and I'm pretty sure they'll do the same for the next upgrade, but I won't get any more data, I'll just get it faster. Which opens the door to busting whatever cap is in place and paying even more. In the end, I look at LTE as nothing more than another way for the carriers to bend me over.

    Tario - any word on a price hike for us grandfathered unlimited people like they did for 3G data upgrade?

    The amount of different E-UTRA bands such an iPhone would have to support to have decent global coverage is ludicrous. The price of such a radio chip would throw the iPhone out of the market totally, assuming such a single chip exists and can be mass-produced at sufficient yields. Never mind how much voltage that chip would require to operate on all those frequencies.

    Apple might be able to get away with a global LTE phone with ten bands (I [2100 IMT], III [900 GSM], VII [2600 IMT-E], VIII [800 GSM], X [superset of IV, 1700/2100 AWS], XII [Lower A/B/C 700], XIII [Upper C 700], XX [800 "EU Digital Dividend"], XXV [superset of II, 1900 PCS], XXVI[superset of V, 850 Cellular and XVIII, 1850 ESMR]). The current iPhone has four GSM bands, five UTMS bands, and two CDMA bands. Adding ten more to that... not an easy feat.

    Unless Qualcomm has done some major baseband voodoo, or Apple is content to have at least four regional iPhone models with four different baseband configurations, we're probably not going to see "One LTE/CDMA/GSM iPhone (or any phone) To Rule Them All" for at least eighteen more months.

    If there's anyone that could pull it off, though, it's probably Apple.

    Will that be Tmobile Compatible 4G ? Or Tmobile Data bandwidth still in the odds ?

    As far as I've been able to read, with AT&T, the price stays at $30 for unlimited (5 GB soft-cap) 4G. Unlike Verizon, AT&T does not appear to be forcing people over to their share plans or forcing someone to change plans if they get a new phone with the subsidy. This could all change with the a new iPhone, though, so I guess we'll find out in September. Personally, I'm going to hang on to my unlimited as long as possible, however, I plan on getting the new iPhone as my launch day 3GS is a bit long in the tooth.

    With a 3gs? That is when you definitely have to update. That device will be puked out by Apple soon. In keeping up with Apple tech, it is always best to not go further than 2 generations behind if you can't get the latest. (Like me)
