    Re: Its like Christmas

    I hate you all. I'm sitting in Cedar Falls where the only answer I can get is sometime next year maybe. And then as a slap in the face, I see that the Siouxer was the first 'city' in Iowa to get 4g.

    Re: Its like Christmas

    Anyone have a coverage map for 4g LTE? I live in Ames and am due for an upgrade with Verizon but I am waiting for 4g...

    Nevermind. Found a map. You can type in your address to see if your covered. AMES IS NOT. DAMN!

    EDIT: Verizon's Site says it has it now! Getting closer to Ames! I have my 4G phone ready for it!


    I went to college thinking I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: Its like Christmas

    I'm starting to feel old... because I just don't care about 4G much. I mean, I use my phone for browsing/fb/twitter, etc but I really don't have much of an issue with the current 3g speeds. Sure faster is always better, but really? it's this big of a deal? Just my 2 cents.

    I just got the bionic about a month ago, and bam! 4G hits. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It was great on 3g, amazing on 4g. Battery holds up pretty well, just gotta watch the apps running continually. Web browsing is insane on it. I use opera mini for the browser. In fact, I routinely just use my phone more for surfing around the house than the computer. And I just use the 4g instead of wifi.

    The bionic screen is very responsive to the touch, it runs smooth, not a lot of hiccups or app closures. If you people are thinking of upgrading at all, just go do it. You will absolutely not be disappointed.

    Re: Its like Christmas

    I use my phone for calling and text only. I hope I never have the urge for more. I put the money I save in a college fund.

    I just get annoyed with people who have their nose in their phone all of the time and I don't want to hate myself. :)

    Obviously there are good reasons to have all of the bells and whistles but I don't have the need.

    My favorite is the guy who can only afford to buy $5 of gas but has money for his iphone and cigarettes.

    To be honest, I loved not having a cell phone while I was deployed. But, what do I do first thing when I get home? Buy an HTC EVO 4G. SMH.

    Re: Its like Christmas

    I'm only complaining because it's hard to have a conversation with someone without them having to take a look at their phone. You can't even say "I hear we're in for a cold weekend" without having a d-bag look up the weather on his phone. I was making conversation, *******.
