    Wow...just looked at my Rocket and for the first time here in Cleveland my LTE is on!!! I didn't think this day would ever come...One of the big reasons I got the SkyRocket to begin with...first speed test I ran in my house here which is only 1 bar is 8428kbps down and 393kbps up. About half of what I get normally on wifi...going to go out and get some more tests. Thank you AT&T!

    Just ran another quick test and this time I got 10245kbps down and 434kbps up...my prior 4g speeds were running about 1800kbps...the fastest I ever got 4G was in a high bar area and was 8000kbps...I need to get out where I have more bars and really check out the Rocket.

    I am still running 2.3.5 rgarcia. Just ran a few more tests fastest yet today is 14492 kbps 587 kbps up. I haven't left home to see how it is around town. That speed is running a little behind what I get at times on wifi, but I imagine it will be faster if I get nearer a tower. rgarcia, have you tried it around town and what kind of results you getting in other areas? i can see already my battery is draining pretty fast! Finally going to have to bite the bullet and look into a couple extra batteries and maybe a charging cradle.

    Last time I was in the ATT store playing with the demo SR the speed test I ran was about 15 down and about 7 up which to me is blazing fast. I hear some parts of downtown SF the speeds are greater than 30 down and12 upstream. Since I have a clunky old IP3G, on a good day I get maybe 600 kbps down, so getting 10-20x's the speed is sweet. Eagerly awaiting to see the new GS3 now as we all are!

    You have some great things to look forward to jt...now that LTE is here I feel my SkyRocket is complete and still competitive with the best out there today. Very satisfying device.

    Well I'll be damned that is some impressive speed...how many bars are you getting? That's close to 3 times what I get on my Time Warner Cable broadband...might have to try some tethering if I could grab those kind of speeds.

    5 bars. I average 4-5 bars throughout the day.

    About 12 hours with surfing, checking email, texting, calls. About eight if I start listening to music online or listening to my iTunes. About 18 hours with minimal activity.

    Well it isn't looking pretty so far TgeekB...last weekend I used pretty heavily but with no calls at all, and pushed it to 36 hours on wifi...5 hours of screen on time. Today so far I am just under 8 hours with 33% left...2 hours screen on time, quite a lot of which is surfing and speedtesting...going to keep posting over the next day or 2, but it looks like my drain has gone from 1% in standby to more like 5-6 or more...still testing though...extra batteries are going to be a must though...but man the pages are really loading snappy...and that rocks big-time...

    It feels like a SkyRocket now...oh ya....

    That looks like about what I'm going to be seeing...big change from wifi and 4g battery times. Thanks for the data man.

    On the market now for a charger and good batteries...

    After checking around I realized apparently Cleveland we nt LTE on Thursday...I sure didn't notice it here at my house until this morning, but it might of been I was just too used of wifi hopping from place to place. I'm not sure if it is still being rolled out and just happened to get to the tower that is servicing my house.

    I'm at 29% with 8.5 hours...absolutely horrifying! I'm going to keep monitoring this, maybe all the speed tests aren't helping.

    Thats what I'm afraid of, battery life drops like a rock. I would stay on wifi when possible but they need to improve the batteries to be able to handle the improvement in technology we are seeing.

    Change your brightness to a standard setting, versus 'auto'. See if that helps.

    I get at least 19 hours, with 2 hours + of screen time, and I'm in Atlanta, GA, with LTE...

    When I was in the SF/Oakland area, I was getting speeds over 30k down for most of the area. Here in the St. Louis area, around 18-24k down.

    As for battery life, hovering between 24-30 hours on the stock battery (which is cool), but around 18 hours when I use the 2250mAh An dida "long lasting" battery...weaksauce.

    Ok so I got a chance to wring out the LTE while I was out at a Mall on Cleveland's east side today. Hit 34573 kbps down and 8099 kbps up consistently in what was apparently a pretty strong signal area. Wow, pages were loading almost instantly and felt like the SkyRocket was really living up to its name. This phone screams on a good network. After 30 years around computers, was the fastest external network speeds I have ever had...and it took a phone to do it...got to love this Rocket.

    So, as I traveled around Greater Cleveland this week it became clear that LTE coverage is pretty spotty. Haven't closely documented but it seems many of the surrounding 'burbs have little or no coverage at all. Hopefully it will spread out a little away from just Cleveland proper, as their are 2 million people in Cuyahoga County.
