    Like the title says, who got the T-Bolt just for unlimited LTE while it's available? I know I did...T-Bolt is nice (much nicer than I imagined it would be). But I really bought this phone to get the unlimited LTE service while it's still available so I can have it grandfathered to whatever phone I really end up with (Bionic or Galaxy S2).

    So did you get the t-bolt just for the shiny new LTE network too? :D:D

  2. So your gonna sell it and buy another phone just so you could get unlimited 4g?

    EDIT:Add an option in the poll that its baddass with LTE?

    It was a consideration, but there were certainly many other reasons I got the phone.

    edit: I certainly won't be selling it and getting any other phone before my contract is up.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but how will it be grandfathered if you have to sign a new contract when you get a new phone? Or are you planning on always paying full price for a phone from here on out?

    Being locked in to an unlimited plan was an big influence into getting this phone. What other 4g phones are we getting that i should wait for and expect any big differences?? Nothing exciting is on the horizon.

    It had nothing to do with my decision. I don't have 4G in my area, and my not any time soon. Who knows?

    Folks should probably enjoy unlimited while it is in your contract, since VZW will probably purge unlimited as contracts for 4G unlimited are done. Seems if you got it for the 4G mainly, best to have done a two year contract to keep on the 4G unlimited for another year.

    I bought it for the 4g. I was perfectly happy with my Droid X. However I am in a 4g area and don't want to play the extra $10/month (potentially) for 4g. If it takes me buying all of my future phones off contract on having to talk with a CS rep each time I upgrade in order to keep my plan then I will.

    I thought that too, but CS makes a point that grandfathering is only good through the signed contract term. Question would be if they want to tick customers off. My guess is they will, especially if the At&t and Tmo merger happens.

    If all carriers are tiered, the customer has no other option. Perhaps Sprint uses unlimited as their niche, but 4G coverage is awful with Sprint and the actual tech they use (for now) is worse.

    Added: The more I think of it, the more I hope the merger fails and At&t are forced to pay Tmo 3B billion and give them signal spectrum.

    If they jack the data fees way up in the future I'll just get a flip phone and a wi-fi tablet.

    my thoughts exactly... at that point (in 2 years), a "tablet" might be the same size as the thunderbolt

    getting locked into 29.99 unlimited LTE was definitely a pull for me--but the nice surprise of being completely surrounded by LTE in Charlotte (unlike my previous WiMax coverage) sealed the deal.

    the phone is a BA. i'm content. i can't think of why i'd trade it up unless something wicked revolutionary came out.
