    I mean what is the point,if we need better mobile computing power with low speed data we already have enough overpriced options in the UK?

    Despite the lack of 4G/LTE, there are still plenty of reasons to get the One X. We've never had 4G/LTE in this country so I'm unsure why it would be an issue now?

    Well I appreciate your position,but if Orange do manage to deliver "proper 4G" you can tell all the One X owners interested in high speed data to bin their recent purchase of One X handsets

    I still can't see the point of a purchase now when data speed is important,especially if you work all over the world like me.

    Remember 4G isn't LTE....Orange and co still won't deliver true standard,I'm sure TOMO will confirm......

    In fact we will probably be here for years......waiting

    You will find the One x is a HSPA+ phone, this originally put it in the category of 4g along with LTE & Wimax.
    True 4g has been ratified & as such there is no network capable of 4g in the UK.
    I don't think even the US has a true 4g network as defined in the link but i may be wrong there.

    True 4G Services Ratified

    Jeez, gotta love revisionist history. :D

    The ITU left people twisting in the wind while the 4G spec stayed in committee in what seemed like forever, and there were several points where we expected ratification within a week, only to have it happen months later.

    Sprint went with planning for WiMax support over 7 months before the spec changed again and was finally ratified. Six months after Sprint started marketing their first 4G phone, and four or five months after competitors started scrambling to match the new mindset, and one month after the spec was ratified, the ITU said this, in response to pissing off an entire country -

    ITU redefines 4G to include LTE, WiMAX and HSPA+ - IntoMobile

    Having lived through the HDTV debacle of what HD truly was, I knew on that day that it was only a matter of time before someone coined the term, Full 4G, or, True 4G. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Sprint is rolling out LTE now to anticipate new handset delivery. By the time their Network Vision build out completes, Sprint will have the largest, fastest LTE network in the United States, capable of serving the most subscribers, and if they follow the plan from there, will get to LTE Advanced after that - True 4G.

    And while that's great for me, so what??

    The point of 4G, I thought, was to get to a universal standard. When I visit the UK after whomever there does whatever, will I be able to roam with data services? I will not. (I already don't get voice, but I fix that with a dual CDMA/GSM phone.)

    Maybe 5G will settle worldwide communication with data, or 9G in my grandkids' time. :D

    Anyway, 4G was supposed to be a solution. And it is. Depending on how we define the problem. ;)

    Just my two cents. :)

    well there's cetainly been a great deal of opinion here,and insight from the Moderators.
    I am now back on Android with a One X,I reckon I'll swap the sim from my iPhone into it later this week,as I cant stand looking at such a small screen any more,or typing on a tiny virtual keypad

    Turns out the things I wanted the most (UK Data speed 4G) don't matter,and the stuff I like best wasnt a consideration.
