Question Galaxy Note 2 4G Model In the UK on October 15th

This is getting slightly confusing, I read today that a 4G Galaxy note 2 will be arriving in the UK on the 15th of October. Here:

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 4G coming to EE on 15 October - News - Trusted Reviews

Now the Galaxy Note 2 UK Titanium Grey has annoyingly been delayed until the 15th of October, so will this be the 4G version. Is this the reason for the delay. That seems a little unfair on those who have purchased the White UK 3G version??

Would be so much easier if Samsung themselves just clarified all of this. I also remember a while ago signing up for an official Samsung notification email as to when the Note 2 is available, still never got that. Lol

these are not sim free phones. It'll be a while before everyone gets 4g so I'm not too worried.

Yea, I'm reading that your looking at around 40 a month to use 4G on these networks too. My current deal Is 12 a month rolling, all you can eat data with the usual minutes and unlimited texts, I wouldn't realistically use 4G until it made sense financially to me. With Wifi everywhere and the all you can eat data I'm good. The option is always nice though, but no 4G is not a deal breaker for me.

I went into the vodafone shop today to get a micro sim (didnt realise the standard sim wouldnt fit) - the lady in there said EE will be a different LTE band to the rest being auctioned later in the year! I guess this means it will be like the early days of 3g when orange and 3 phones wouldnt work with others sims because they were on a different band.

What a mess.

I initially went with this phone over the S3 as I had read online it was compatible with 4G. The Samsung website is itself misleading and the staff in the phone shops seem to know even less. However, after much deliberation I decided to go for the uk 3G version as I don't really use my phone out of wifi range often and didn't want to pay a premium on the handset and tarriff for a service that I wouldn't really use. Apart from EE, no one in the uk is selling the 4g versions yet and EE haven't even confirmed pricing yet. From various websites and talking to staff in stores it sounds like 4g is going to be a bit of a mess for a few years whereas 3G might finally get sorted out. I'm sticking with value and performance over a showpiece feature which will be overpriced and sketchy unless you live in central London or another major city.

4g compatible isn't a major issue for me as where I live we get 10mb speeds on 3g anyway and that's plenty for me.
