    so here is where i stand for those who have been following my saga:

    I have been waiting a long time to replace my Storm 1 with a 4G droid. My daughter has proven to me by owning both the TBolt and the Charge that neither are satisfactory for me because of battery life issues.

    i have been waiting for the droid bionic and that wait seems to be continuing with no end in sight.

    I am also NOT an Apple guy - i own a 10gig iPod they refer to as the brick, was given an iPad2 as a gift and thats it.

    So, if the iPhone 5 for Big Red comes out in the near future like its supposed to and here are the ifs:
    1. if it is 4G
    2. if the battery lasts all day,

    I am going to buy it.

    One further if:

    1. if i can connect my entire world through my iphone my ipad my ipod seamlessly i might not come back.

    I know because i am being left little choice. it is a shame that i am potentially being forced to the evil empire because of what boils down to a failure of droid makers.

    the most interesting thing about the iPhone 5 if its 4G, is what will be the battery life. if they can provide enough battery life to get me through the day then its a done deal. and then the questions will be:

    1. why could they and the others could not
    2. how fast they can make the phone because it will sell like hot cakes

    sad but true story. i never thought i would be interested in an iPhone.

    It's not going to be 4G/LTE. Next years model will be.

    This is in the wrong forum as well

    I also have my doubts about the next iPhone being LTE capable. They have been quoted as saying it isn't where they want it to be. Which really means they are waiting for an all in one SoC to have it included so they don't need to have a separate radio just for LTE.

    Also I've heard that the Charge had pretty good battery life, all things considered. What's your experience been?

    The iPhone won't get an LTE version for a while. I think that Apple will either wait for second-gen LTE chips to hit the market or wait for VoLTE to gain traction so they can make a phone with a single LTE radio before putting LTE into the iPhone.

    Apple always plays it safe and waits too long to release everything - 3G, copy and paste, useful notifications, and now LTE.

    I was in the same boat as OP but I just jumped ship and ordered a iphone 4 and only paid $99 for it. (I'm so disappointed in myself)

    I don't understand why people feel ashamed or that they are doing something wrong by going to Apple and the iPhone. If that's what you are interested in then go for it. Its not what I would choose to do. But i wouldn't judge anyone else for making a different choice.

    EDIT: I went for the iPhone 4. Been loving it. Didn't think that would be the choice I would make , but it seemed to be a good one for me.

    I really just said that as a joke. But I really do miss some of the things that android has but apple lacks. I don't really know of any good forums for the iPhone so I just stay around AC

    I'm in the same boat, original poster.

    I've been thinking of switching to from my Droid X over to an Iphone 4 even, but not sure if I should just hold out for 5 :\

    Plus with all the contract change possibilities due to Verizon going to tiered soon, who knows if we would lose our unlimited data plan or not.

    If the iPhone 5 doesn't have 4G, it's going to lose even more ground to Android. If the iPhone 5 has 4G I'll be getting it, otherwise I'll get the first Android 4.0 device that comes to Sprint.
