Apple iPhone 4S does NOT have 4G -- just a 4G icon!

Well, I guess Apple decided if they just put a 4G icon on the iPhone 4S that would satisfy everybody-- - technology: "Forget the icon, Apple iPhone 4S does not have 4G -Apple iPhone 4S begins showing 4G icon - Interestingly, this problem only exists for iPhone customers on AT&T. Those on Verizon are still seeing the correct 3G icon. AT&T and Verizon operate on different mobile network standards, and it’s unclear what exactly triggered this issue. But to be clear, the showing of a 4G symbol on the iPhone 4S is only a display issue and nothing else. No one with an iPhone 4S has the capability to connect to a 4G network. - SlashGear"

Apple iPhone 4S owners who don't realize that you can't suddenly turn a phone from a 3G device to a 4G device with a magical software update, are pretty excited to see that after downloading the new iOS update their phone now shows a 4G icon.
