    My wife and I need to switch from T-Mobile because we are moving and have terrible service at our new house, and we don't have a home phone. I am either going to go to AT&T or Verizon. My problem is that I feel that all the Windows Phones available aren't the best that are coming. I know Nokia specifically mentioned LTE in conjunction with their US launch. My big thing is that if I am going to lock into a phone for 2 years, I really want LTE. I know I don't need it now, my city isn't even a 4G market at this point. But in 12 months, I probably will want LTE if I don't already have it. Should I try and pick up some cheap Windows Phones on craigslist to get by until Nokia makes their plans for US more evident or just get a Focus S?

    I am with you on this. I'm probably picking up the Focus S even though my Focus does very well now; I'm just very impatient. But I'm in a good situation because my dad has a business contract with A&T (with about 30 phones) so there's an upgrade available every month or so. If you don't care about a FFC I would recommend getting something off Craigslist. You should be able to get a Focus for pretty cheap.

    What do you need LTE for? My DVP at current 3G speeds can stream anything and as we know browsing with IE9 is fast already. I think the new at&t WP7 devices at HSPA+ 14.4mbps would be just fine and add in the faster processor, NAND memory and GPU I dont see why anyone would be so concerned about LTE now. More important is what the coverage is like, no point having an LTE device if you cant make a connection.

    They're selling Samsung Focuses (Focii?) on ebay for sub $200. Would definitely look that way and then upgrade later

    Either buy a focus and get through the next 6 months before Nokia pops out some awesome windows phone dual core LTE FFC NFC and ready for WP8 upgrade... Or get an unlocked iPhone4S for the next year and sell it when you are about to switch. And I think prepaid plan is probably enough for you for a couple of months, unless you are a heavy caller. =)
