4G ONLY! They will not be adding 3G...I have had many conversations with VZW about this and it is not in the works. If you only have a 3G device the only way to access VZW in Hagerstown is to drop another couple of hundred dollars and buy a 4G device. Load of Crap!
I too received an email from VZW that 4g would be available in Hagerstown beginning October 2011. I have a 3g device that gets a constant 1x in Hagerstown. My son has a 4g device that gets 1x also. I contacted VZW, whom replied that there is both 3g and 4g coverage in Hagerstown. They told me to update my devices, which I did. This changed nothing. I truly don't believe the tower is up and running as advertised. I have to go to Greencastle PA, (or I could have gone to Frederick MD) to do updates or programming. That seems to be the closest 3g or 4g signal. Perhaps VZW could offer a better explanation?
