If NY is one of those LTE cities planned of those lucky 15, I will be the first one in line for one of those LTE phones! Smiley Tongue

New York is not one of the new markets coming online - best that is said there ia "real soon". They state a total of 15 markets by the end of 2011, sill be interesting to see if they can get the other 8 working by the end of the year as stated. Of the new ones coming up, one of them - washington DC is listed, DC has had LTE for while already, so it appears ot be just a expansion there and not a "new market"

Oh I know that Wing. Smiley Happy Thats why I mentioned "If" Smiley Wink. Indeed, with the 4 new additions today, there is 6 more cities where LTE can be deployed to reach the goal of 15 at the end of 2011. I just hope NY is one of them but I guess we'll find out in due time. Smiley Happy

DC is certainly not on the first 5 cities AT&T stated to have LTE before. So it is a new market.

I am happy with my GS2.  I don't really care about LTE.  Download speeds with HSPA+ are about 10 times faster than on my PC.  Maybe in a couple of years, when they get all of the bugs out of LTE phones, I will get one.  I have read a lot of posts about people having problems with their LTE phones on Verizon.

I happened into my AT&T store on the 30th day with my GSII, and I had to make a same day decision.  

 

My GSII had been working great.  More battery power than I needed.  I was flaunting it to my iPhone friends. 

 

But in-store 4g speeds of the Skyrocket in D.C. blew me away.  They were consistently around 24 mps.  I had never seen that before.  And I was interested in the slightly bigger screen as well.  So I switched.

 

I'm not flaunting my battery any more.  The 4g does eat up battery.  I've started to turn off 4g when I have WIFI, which is a lot of my day.  With 4g off, there is no battery issue.  I'm very disappointed that I can't switch down to HSPA and switch up to 4g on demand.  All I can do is have 4g data on or off.  

 

And the vaunted 4g doesn't consistently work with data.  When it works, it's beautiful.  Sometimes (too often) it hangs on websites. 

 

Minor issue:  Hulu Plus doesn't run yet on Skyrocket.  It ran beautifully on GSII.

 

So I'm not sure if I'll keep the Skyrocket or go back.  I'm hoping that the 4g network will stabilize and work consistently across websites here in D.C. soon.  Then it will just be a question of battery control.

 

That's my early view of it.  RM
