The reality of 4G, Normal battery drain? [From the Forums]


Wouldn't know, still don't have a 4G phone, daaaaamnit! But it looks like I'm not missing out on much. I've been on VZW for 10+ years and never had a single complaint but it looks like they've had their fair share of problems with the 4G the past couple months, WTF?!?!?!

I wish I could have stuck with Sprint. People whine about the coverage- the data speeds. But I always had awesome coverage and data speeds were superfast and reliable- and got more so as time passed... Went from barely a single 4g bar anywhere in my house-(Ilived at edge of Sprints coverage)- to 3bars anywhere in my house. I loved Sprint- until they terminated my contract and summarily ended my service.

Seems their totally "unlimited data" isn't really. If you use too much data- they terminate your account. No "early termination fees" though- but I was perfectly happy with Sprint using my Evo 4g... that carrier IQ embedded in Sense and everything else "got me" - if I had only stuck to cyanogen mod 7- I would still be with the NOW network.. ah...
New carriers - services and pricing stinks though. T-mobile- cant not drop calls... ATT is so expensive- they charge you if you sneeze near your phone- Sneeze catcher service 9.99 a month... the breathing too much air overage charges are like .50 cents per square liter of Air over etc.. Verizon- I still hate them from when they were bell atlantic and literally kept charging me for a service I cancelled- for months-I had to get the Pennsylvania Public utility commission to make them stop- I still cant stand those thieving name and all. I dunno.
I've been using a prepaid the last month from cricket- and it calls and texts just fine- running my Evo 4g on wifi to get emails and news... I might just stay with prepaid $40 dollars a month, seriously.
