    I saw a Sprint commercial last night that was all about 4g and had the Moment in it. Is it 4g? Are they coming out with a new one that is? This is a horrible video but it's the only one I found.

    I was wondering that also, but 4g is not even close to being rolled out where I live.

    no they don't have a phone that IS 4g so they are just showing "what can YOU do with 4g" by pretending they are holding a 4g phone to show what they WILL be able to do... the moment 2 with tv processor will hopefully be coming out soon, and with that MAYBE a 4g antenna but i kinda doubt it...

    Oh like you can watch videos on your Moment via wifi with a 4g hot spot device? It's kinda a misleading commercial, don't ya think?

    It would be misleading if it was a commerical for the phone itself, but looks like it is advertising the service.

    exactly they are advertising 4g not a 4g phone, they are a cell carrier so of course they're going to have a phone somewhere in it

    I don't know about 4G but maybe it's the SPH-M910 which isn't out yet. It looks just like ours but does digital over the air broadcast television.

    The Pre used to be on the 4G commercials too.

    I just saw that commercial on TV. I paused it and I can't see any difference b/w the Moment that they show and, well, ours...:thinking: I could clearly see the gap between his ring and pinky fingers, and there does not appear to be an additional port or port-cap.

    I guess they were just pretending:(

    We barely have 3G where i live, and it has barely hit us.... so even with a 3g or 4g network we only get what we have available. i did see a commercial for 3g and it says in the fine print (where available)
