    Hello! great forum!
    My contract ends in sept. I can upgrade now. I do not live in a 4g area. i do not have a data plan. Still using feature phone.
    I want a smartphone. would love 4g when it can reach me. do I get one now? Will I be grandfathered in with 4g? What If i only get a 3g phone?
    And of course....the obligatory question....what phone should I get?

    And what if I can't wait that long? I may be a bit short on patience. ;)

    Buy your phone from Costco, they haves 90 day return policy. Buy now, even exchange when something better comes out.

    If you don't have access to 4G, I see no point in paying a premium for the phone. Any idea if you're likely to get 4G sooner rather than later? I wouldn't bother if you're more likely to get 4G around the end of 2012. If you're okay with a big handset to get a large screen, the Droid X2 is a good choice. If you're okay going slightly smaller in screen, the Incredible 2 is nice and compact for still having a 4" screen.
