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:

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.

Oh damn...That's exactly what he was talking about! What an idiot

it isn't on the West Coast only, I am in Washington DC and I heard the same thing....how the hell would you type on a holographic keyboard?
Someone here in FL told Me the same thing. Watch the video and you can see how you would type
