Well, the *228 does give you the 3026PRL. THOSE of you that don't have 4G will just have to wait for the new 4G tower conversion. By the way so long as the towers are 3G. or higher you will get 3g. By the way, the current Metro Optimus. M now comes with Gingerbread and so far LG has NO plans for an update on the older phone. Ain't it a bugger that some of us had to put on 2.2.1 so we could root to put on CM. 7 custom Gingerbread! Way too go LG.
