Lol. So it would be good to have 4G if we could turn it off, or if we live where we couldn't access it. I have homes in two 4G cities and have resisted signing up. I have grandfathered unlimited 3G on iPad and iPhone, and I'm paying only a fraction of what new accounts cost. I might bite the bullet and switch to 4G for a new Android phone that I really want, but not if battery life sucks. If it does suck, I might buy the non-U.S. model, which is 3G, even though I would have to pay more than double because there would be no U.S. carrier subsidy.
