As for me, I'm gonna launch the speedtest.net app, run a test to see the LTE download speed, take a snapshop of the result (and print it out and frame it), then I'll start a thread for similar snapshots from fellow eiC members. Then, I'll immediately set LTE to off and stick with AT&T's faux-4G (HSPA+). I'm not giving AT&T another red cent for a higher data plan that isn't even permissive enough to allow FaceTime unless I get on a shared data plan. And if I'm out and about in an area devoid of Wi-Fi, and discover than an upgrade to Angry Birds suddenly becomes available, I think I can survive until I get home to my trusty Wi-Fi. Might make the Angry Birds angrier still, but I don't care...

I stopped playing games a year ago, but i'm getting that Real Racing 3 as soon as it drops. I will download a few of my apps I always use. But i'm keeping this phone clean and only downloading/syncing things that I need.
I'm not going to restore from back up obviously.

Edit, First, I will cut my current micro sim, or go to AT&T and get a Nano sim in my phone number.
then read something in the web browser to see the extra screen size. Then play with the Maps.

I am going to video me smashing the crap out of the pos htc droid phone I have been using. I foolishly (go ahead and pile it on because I deserve it) switched from a 3g to a droid rather than the 4 but I wanted to see if the grass was greener and you know what?...it sure wasn't. Ahhh, feel better now that I know in a few short days I will be back in the iPhone family.

Very true, but I'll be consuming data much faster! I don't want to get accustomed to the LTE speeds, 'cause I'll probably use up my allotment in the first 5 days of the billing cycle!
I suppose that could be true. However, I don't see myself using my iPhone all that differently than I do now. I'll just do it faster! :)

Play play play
Gotta talk to Siri so she get' used to my accent
Do you think we can go and get a nanosim ahead of time ?
I'm definitely going to do some playing... Can you believe that something as simple Scramble With Friends hiccups quite noticeably on my 3GS ?

Incidentally, notice that Siri is still labeled Beta -- http://www.apple.com/ios/Siri/

Shouldn't she be fluent at least in English by now? Maybe the "Beta" designation is because she's learning all these new langauges...

I spent the last several days cleaning out all of my iPhone 4S (also iTunes) apps to just the ones I need/use so that I can sync the new iPhone without too much clutter. Can't wait to play.

Well since I'm off (PTO), and haven't held an iPhone in awhile, I'm going to go through every setting and get my feel back. Then I'll play with the native apps.

After I've gotten my feel, I'm going to ask Siri if I should go to work.

I respect that, but I still don't get why you wouldn't use the LTE. Like someone else mentioned, you're already paying for it.

Don't make me go into my rant about unlimited users who complain about switching to a tiered plan... ;)
