I think I may go white this time. I think I'm ready for a cosmetic change to make my shiny new 4S look different from my 4. What color is everyone else picking this time around?

My wife has a white iPhone 4. I had a white iPhone 3G before so I will probably go with the black iPhone this time around. Although that might change by Friday.

Well I'm getting two, so one of each for me. The wife and I can decide when they arrive.

Probably black. Won't really matter as I'm slapping it in an otterbox as soon as I can get one for it.

I actually think I won't overprotect my phone for the first time ever this go-around. Maybe a bumper-like case and a screen protector on front and back.

Isn't it the same form factor as the iPhone 4 so all those cases would work for it, right?

I think they should throw a charcoal gray in the mix to complete the drab color cycle.

I might go with the white one or maybe the black one not sure yet. So someone tell me what's the story about the HSPA meaning the new iPhone 4s phone? From some of the websites I've looked at they say it wont have 4g capabilities and some say yes it will.

From my understanding it has HSPA+ which isn't quite 4G but definitely gives you a boost in speed. With AT&T you have to be in an area where both HSPA+ and enhanced backhaul are available on the network to get those speeds. I don't think its much help for Verizon or Sprint as their networks are different. So regardless it isn't 4G its actually 3.5G, I think.

Edit: Im not sure now because I just looked it up a little. In chicago AT&T has their 4G LTE network up, speeds there were 13Mbps download speed, and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul at 6.8. I thought that 4G LTE had 21Mbps download speeds and HSPA+ was the 1 around 14.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe it will fit. I'm coming from a 3GS, so I have to get a new one anyway.

I thought hspa+ is the same thing ATT uses to advertise "4G". If it is true, everyone will be happy with the speeds.. cause i had the Atrix 4g from ATT as well, and I was getting 4-6mbps download. That extra or 2 mbps makes a HUGE difference. But yeah, still not 4g. Enough to make me happy cause it is blazing fast compared to 3g.
