    When is Motorola going to do the 4G activation?

    I'm a bit ignorant of US networks as I'm from the UK so I don't know if Verizon even supports 4G but I was wondering when Motorola have said they would start doing the 4G activation?

    I'm trying to find out if in the UK Motorola will honour a 4G upgrade for the Xoom, when our networks support it.

    It will be honored. Don't worry. and your answer is the 4G activation will happen when it's ready.

    Well I've just got a reply from Motorola regarding if they'd honour 4G activation when the UK is upgraded to it in the imminent future. Unfortunatly I got this stupid reply:

    The European Xoom will not be updatable to 4G due to a lack of pan-european 4g standard.


    So I replied saying I already knew that and had actually outlined it in my question. However would it be available as an upgrade when available (like the US market version). I also went onto say that the UK is actually paying more for the Xoom than the US and failure to offer this upgrade is desciminating against the UK.

    I wouldn't think moto would waste a 4g radio in a xoom that resides in an incompatible area of the world. Doesn't make any since, although I due understand that you paid more and are getting less. It sucks but didn't you know that before purchasing?

    Its not out over here yet, its release date is at the beginning of April. But my point is that even in the US the 4G components don't come pre-installed and are being offered at a later date, so why can't Motorola do the same for the UK? The 4G spectrum is going to be auctioned off at the begining of next year so I guess its not going to be too long after that, that we're have a workable 4G network, especially as I live in the capital.

    Don't feel bad. I just saw Verizon's 4g map for new areas, and I'm not on it. We wont get it probably until the chickens come home.

    But at least you know you will have it by the end of 2013 this Guy won't get it @ all. Well at least not on his xoom that is.
