    From what I know, Verizon doesn't have 4G in place yet. They're planning to use LTE in the future.

    I'm not an expert in this even though I got a degree in ICS as a network specialist (very sad on my part), but think 4G as HD compared to 3G as digital cable.

    4G has a bigger pipe (wave) to send and receive data at broadband speeds using cell towers. Sprint's 4G coverage is limited for now, but the possibility of 4G phones in the future having the ability to video conference and perform data tasks and voice calls (like AT&T) will be high.

    To experience 4G, check if it's available in your area.

    Sprint's Overdrive 4G/3G is a mobile wireless modem. Imagine using this as your primary internet provider at home and on the go. Send/receive data and make voice calls on any wifi enable phone.

    The only downside is that you have to carry two devices and the battery life on the Overdrive is not the best.

    Hope that helps.
