    They f'd up the gnex. They never update anything in a timely manner. Not to mention they would add an extra 2gigs of crapware that you couldn't get rid of. The storage space on that phone is already crap, no more room for more bloat

    Each cell tower and the air interface has a capacity limit. LTE has more capacity than HSPA+.
    And u need 30mbps download for what? I understand its nice to have but definately not needed. Especially if u have wifi at home/work.

    I just wish there was a verizon variant of this device.
    You see the nexus 4 on Verizon when the LTE chip gets activated which will be never.

    Hmmm.... it seems xda discovered something:

    nexus has LTE - Page 6 - xda-developers

    It seems do N4 support LTE but only on band 4 and works only in "LTE only mode"

    Also:

    "Band 4 (AWS) could essentially be supported with the power amplifiers and transceiver that already are onboard the Nexus 4, but again it ultimately comes down to a particular OEM choice whether these get supported"

    AnandTech - Google Nexus 4 Review - Google's new Flagship

    Which would fit to what is happening in xda

    I don't even get why people would want the Nexus 4 on Verizon. I had the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and I was very unhappy with it. It felt like I was a second rate Nexus owner. Every single time an update would come out, the tech blogs would mention that there is no news on when Verizon will have the update. Each time I seen that I was reminded that I had a Verizon wireless Nexus and not a Google Nexus.

    Besides, most of the things that make the Nexus 4 so attractive wouldn't be possible with Verizon anyway. $299-$350 unlocked and with no contract wouldn't happen with Verizon. Immediate updates directly from Google wouldn't happen with Verizon. And a device that is free from carrier or OEM modifications won't happen with Verizon.

    I am looking at the back of my Nexus 4 right now and thinking about how ugly a 'Verizon 4G LTE' logo would look on it. Meh, I'm kinda glad Verizon doesn't have another Nexus to mess up and I personally hope it stays that way. If they can't provide a good Nexus experience (and Google has already admitted that the vzw galaxy Nexus experience sucked) then they shouldn't release a Nexus device at all.

    If u don't care then don't post. If u don't like the phone that's your opinion. But it is definitely far from a POS.

    Dear God, can you not read? It lacks an LTE antenna. There will be no LTE N4. Got it? Good.

    Like I said, you asked a question and I answered it. As far as it being a POS, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. With 11 gb available, to me, it makes it a POS.

    The internals and look may be top of the line, but if the phone will not handle what I need it to, it falls into the POS bucket. Maybe when they release the 32 gb model in a few months I could reconsider it. Unfortunately the other phone I was considering, the DNA, falls into this same category.

    So the question remains, when do you think Google will activate LTE on the nexus 4?

    Why would you doubt I need it for porn? Even if it isn't porn, don't we want the fastest connection possible? I use about 25gb a month in data. Most of it is job related. A lot of it is while I am working at a customers site. I think it is better that I can get in and out faster from their point of view and that they would hate having me there longer just because of a download...

    Look at that...turns out I was seemingly correct in this being illegal.

    And working on ONE band does not an LTE phone make. Especially a band that's essentially useless except in a very few specific markets.
