The HTC Inspire 4G have the same features as the Thunderbolt,( except front camera I ll never use) same build quality $99.00, uh I think is time to go ATT. why pay $200.00 Plus? for a Phone that may come out with some problems, because the delayed thunderbolt is a mystery. what you think? ill go ATT...

All of my neighbors who have AT&T get terrible coverage, so I'll be sticking with VZW.

Alot depends on how good AT&T's network is where you're at. Read their Data Plan terms and limits closely. The Inspire 4G is a good device with only the issues I've noticed coming from very low ringer/speakerphone volume,even when set on high. You also should know AT&T has capped it's HSPA+ uplink speed.

well I live in Washington DC, and ATT, Tmobile, Sprint and WZW cover the metropolitan area very good, so thats the reasong to go ATT HTC inspire, thought VZW have better network, all my friends are happy with ATT some of them no that happy with Sprint 4g speed in their Evos, but Tmobile rock in this area, and ATT very acceptable coverage.

It's not quite the same phone. The Inspire isn't LTE capable. Unless AT&T has decided to scrap LTE since they are calling their HSPA+ network 4G now, it will be more outdated than the Thunderbolt in a year.

Root the Inspire 4g

Thank you for the advice, I read if you root hspa can be fix it , and usually the first thing i do when buy a new phone is root it.:D

Its capable in the specifications from HTC, another thing is ATT disable it but you can enable it with root access.

I had an Inspire & returned it. It had one or two small issues itself. I guess no brand new device is perfect. Don't get me wrong, I liked it a lot & the only thing keeping me from regretting returning it is ATT. I live in a Verizon 4G & ATT H+ area. It wasn't so much their coverage - its OK where I live, not great. I was getting from 1 to 4 MB down & from 100 to 300 kbps up. To me it was the combination of the phone issue & the principle of them hampering the upload speeds that pushed me into returning the phone & canceling the contract.

Also, from what I've read & experienced, while the Inspire is a very nice phone ? one that I wish was on Verizon, their not the same hardware. Performance wise I'd say the EVO is about 60% of the TB & the Inspire is about 80 - 85% of the TB from the benchmarks I've seen on line & ran myself. Real world, I doubt you'll be able to tell any difference between the Inspire & TB UI performance wise.

I know there?s no way or need for both the Inspire & TB to be on Verizon but especially with this TB B.S. release or lack there of, man, if the Inspire would have gone to Verizon & at the $50 I payed for it I'd be very content right now...

In real estate they say location is everything. Maybe in cell phones its location & timing is everything - damn iphone!

I'll ALWAYS choose my carrier first, so whatever device I choose will actually work in the area I live.

I've been on all the major carriers multiple times switching back & forth; none of them come close to touching VZW's call clarity, reliability, and network integrity. Paying a bit more for a device I'm going to have for 1-2 years and use a lot daily, is hardly a game changer to me.

EDIT: Years & years from now I believe there will be a unified standard for voice / data over LTE for all major carriers? Then all devices will work on all carriers. Please correct me if I am wrong.

After being a VZW customer for years and seeing first hand how fast LTE is this week (via USB modems I posted elsewhere) I'll be sticking it out for this phone.

ATT voice coverage is a joke...as is their HSPA speeds in my neck of the woods.
