about 4G

I saw a video of the bold 9900 with showing 4G right above the network status.

Does it really have 4G? if so, what about the torch 9860?

If you're with a carrier whose network is 4G, then both phones will support it.  Keep in mind that one network's 4G is another's 3G+ while another network will label those speeds only 3G.  Something really has to be done to find a common definition of 4G.

Incidentally, my 9860 shows H+ (for HSPA+), and it's 4G by my carrier's definition.

 

 

I hope that clears things up for you.  Smiley Happy

Re: about 4G

So depends on the carrier? Does it make difference if it will show 4G? Will i have a faster internet speed?

Yes, it depends on your carrier.  Think of your phone as a super-fast PC and your internet comes to you by dial-up modem.  Your phone is up to par but if the network isn't delivering to its full potential, your phone won't be much quicker than 3G.

I can tell you firsthand that my carrier supports 4G (or very fast 3G+ if you will) and I see a difference.

 

P.S.  To fully answer your question, if your phone is showing 4G or H+, you're good.  You'll get some pretty amazing speeds.

 

 

Cheers.  Smiley Happy
