Jake from our community has posted a poll, chime in with your thoughts!
At this point everyone and their cousin has tapped into their exclusive and elusive “sources” to either confirm or deny that the iPhone will be arriving at Verizon in January. Now, I just want to see who believes it and who doesn’t, that’s all. I don’t want this to be another debate thread as to why it will or won’t be coming, just whether you think it will or not. Get it? Good, let’s start!
I came across a very interesting article which explains the differences in these technologies. Basically, 3G technology handles voice and internet activities on cell phones. 4G handles internet only making the size of the cell sites smaller and able to use less energy.
Here is an excerpt form the article:
“3G networks carry voice and Internet traffic. 4G networks are built specifically for Internet content, so cell sites don’t include equipment to route phone calls, reducing their footprint and creating energy efficiencies. That also positions 4G networks to better handle high-bandwidth activities.
In a recent post we announced that the Epic 4G update would be released on the 26th of December….and it was not lie. Sprint really intended the update to go live on that date. However, due to unmentioned causes the update has been placed on hold.
Here is a screenshot of the internal memo sent to Sprint employees about this.
“I’m sure this has been asked before I’m I’m brand new to this forum…..anyways, my girlfriend was in the sprint store to get her phone fixed. When she got it back, the rep told her the issues they found with the phone and also said they deleted the anti-virus programs because they’re know to cause issues. She said to just use the task manager.
My question is, why does sprint not like the av programs and how the hell are you supposed to use the task manager in place of one. I don’t get it………….any help is appreciated.”
What has your experiences been with antivirus software on your phone? Would you recommend it?

Its wallpaper and keyboard are also visibly different than in any of the other product shots in the gallery.
