Yeah...I agree! I work in Columbus, OH and live in Pataskala (east suburb). Work is smack dab in the middle of LTE and home is "Extended Coverage"! While I don't have an LTE phone to test it with, I'm hoping that whenever VZW decides to actually release another LTE phone, I may pick it up and find out first hand. Otherwise, I'm sure I'll be more than happy with the smartphone features and 3G speeds I've never had (still on that wonderful 1X network!!!.....UGH!)
4G is going to be a great thing, without a doubt. However, it's going to be how the hardware (phones) actually use it that will make all the difference in the world! I was initially "awed" by dual core phones...but quickly realized that unless I'm using my phone as a laptop, it won't really make that big of a difference Even watching streaming TV/movies won't make that big of a difference.
The LG Revolution's specs are, at this point in time, more than sufficient at doing what I need a phone to do. I will be able to make phone calls, video calls (which is HUGE for me!), text, browse the web, GPS, and stream video (Netflix). I'm not needing it to create Powerpoint presentations while I've got an Excel spreadsheet, a couple Word docs, Adobe Flash presentations, and my MP3 player playing in the background!
My biggest complaint now is simply the lack of communication from VZW on what the hold up is and why all their phones as well as their network are having issues. Maybe it's simply a "cause and effect" thing....the network had to be altered which, in turn, caused the phones to need to be altered (Thunderbolt JUST got a software change, Charge was delayed, Revolution is possibly delayed or at least has been changed according to the FCC update notice....etc...)
