    I just got LTE in Evansville Indiana recently and I don't know about you guys but I hardly ever talk on the phone and when I do the voice quality is just fine for me! So why waste more bandwidth on silly things like this. Just My OPINION!

    Voice sounds good enough for me whether its over 3G or even 2G. Seems like more of a marketing gimmick *CHECK IT OUT ALL NEW HD VOICE NOW PAY US EXTRA*. Besides, I think there was some research that pointed out voice over LTE uses more battery. Assuming that it does use more battery, I hope they'll have an option tucked away in a menu that lets you disable it.
