    In other words it supports it but AT&T has decided to disable it again. This is just plain stupid considering they are advertising it with 4G speeds which is supposed to be an improvement. I wouldn't be surprised if someone decides to start a class action. Note this has been true of about every Android phone on AT&T. The iPhone is the only one they don't disable it on.

    That's one of those things where some lawyers make a load of money and several thousand people each get like a $7.00 check isn't it? ;)

    Yea lol but as I was saying atrix won't have this enabled either. So unless this changes when the HSPA+ is totally backhauled neither will have it enabled without a custom Rom. Good luck with that on a locked bootloader having atrix

    But the point is what is the point of 4G if it is slower than 3G on certain phones. Most people are probably upgrading to 4G phones simply for the improved speeds but it's like a bait n switch since they aren't getting it and in fact are in most cases probably getting worse service.

    The reality is 99 percent of people will only use or.notice.the download speeds. Not many users will look at upload. When the dowmload speeds jump in a month to HSPA+ levels no one is really gonna care about the upload. Plus I believe once all the backhaul is up the hsupa will be opened

    AT&T should enable HSUPA for Android phones, it will be a big deal and show they are actually being serious about Android now.

    I'm not saying it does support it, however where in this blog post does it say what ATT confirmed anything? I don't see a quote from ATT. I expect better reporting from them, if you say ATT confirmed it then post what they said.

    Android central thinks a lot of things are news how many errant things have they and other sites posted just about this phone ? Also like coreymci says were did At&t actually say that ?

    The Inspire 4G is the first "4g" phone released by AT&T and it is most certainly news that HSUPA is disabled. Don't worry Andrea, it's not a knock on the phone itself, it's a knock on AT&T's ongoing data policies.

    Oh I know but im truly in the thinking that once the HSPA+ backhaul launches this will change
