    It is not a 4G phone. It does not say 4GS on the phone, box, or anywhere else. Why do people think the 4S is a 4GS? People even thought the 4 was iPhone 4G. Had my last straw today when I got this text message:

    Anyone else share my pain?!

    Most people think the G stands for generation, and I don't usually stress about stuff that matters less than zero

    I actually haven't heard anyone refer to it as the4GS...

    But your right...I also don't like it when people change around the name like that.

    I've heard news casters refer to it as a 4GS and I want to jump through the tv and punch them!

    I had a guy arguing with me that it was the iPhone 5.:confused:

    Then again, people are still calling the 4 a 4G.

    That's nothing!
    I had one guy argue with me a couple of weeks ago that the new iPhone was going to have a screen that would illuminate on the table in front of you to use as a keyboard...what a joke!

    It's as maddening to me as when someone calls an iPod touch "iPod touch". I don't care how rude I sound when I correct them, it is just not the name of the product.

    This is why he was arguing that with you. It's a fan made video (very well done, I might add) showing very neat but absolutely impossible "concept features" of the iPhone 5 including super thin display (credit card thin), laser keyboard (what you are describing), and a holographic display that projects Star Wars-like over the iPhone.

    Can't believe someone thought the video was real, though.

    Another things that bugs me is when people call an iPod Touch an "iPod touch."

    The phone carriers...mostly AT&T do not help this issue at all. They say they have a 4g network but it is not true 4g.
