    Hi, I'm new.
    About me, I've been an HTC Aria user for the past 6 months.
    I AM NOT rooted :( (stupid froyo)
    So, to the story.
    I am almost completely out of internal memory on my Aria, and started to browse my phone via FTP to see if I could find anything helpful.
    I stumbled upon a folder in /system/etc called WiMax. I knew that was 4g, and took a look. It contained a file called wimaxDchp.conf.
    So i downloaded it, and here it is...

    # dhcpcd configuration for Android WiMAX interface
    # See dhcpcd.conf(5) for details.

    interface wimax0
    # dhcpcd-run-hooks uses these options.
    option subnet_mask, routers, domain_name_servers

    Could the Aria have 4g hardware and we not know it?
    So I googled. I found the best buy slipup with the Aria displaying 4g on one of it's magazines. This may have not been photoshopped, just and old picture. I encourage someone with more knowledge than me to look into this and see what happens when you change that setting to 1.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    My guess is no... the Aria has a 3G radio in it. Phone manufacturers are typically run by their bean counters and to install a 4G radio in a 3G phone would be a rather expensive and frivolous gesture on HTC's part.

    Moving thread to the HTC Aria support forum...
