    BlackBerry 7 phones are capable of utilizing 4G network speeds however whether or not 4G is available in your area is solely dependent on the carrier.

    Hello stunnar and welcome to

    You can access it by by clicking the Option > Networks and Connections > Mobile network.
    Make sure that your Data Services is ON and choose the right Network Mode (2G 3G 2G&3G 4G etc depending on your carrier)

    Hope that helps.

    Well I'm Not sure about the UK, but here in Canada we have 4G. I have the Blackberry Bold (touch) 9900 7OS and I have the 4G like I said.

    Does the 4G signal shows on its own when the network is available?

    Lets clarify what "4G" is actually supposed to mean. It is supposed to mean LTE. Currently there are NO LTE BlackBerry Smartphones on the market. The ONLY true 4G device from RIM in market is the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE Tablet. The Bold 9900 does NOT have true 4G, it has HSPA+. Unless your carrier was not using HSPA+ beforehand, you shouldn't notice any carrier speed improvements.

    You have a (technically) valid point. AgentBlackBerry and I had a disagreement on this very subject, so we worked together to find out the true meaning of 4G and HSPA+. While HSPA+ is not 4G, it is close enough that the International Telecommunications Union-Radio communications sector (ITU-R), allowed the carriers of North America to market HSPA+ as 4G. That's the reason you see 4G and LTE being branded separately in NA. HSPA+ can be considered 3.5G, so rounding up to 4 is not considered false. Also, LTE (3.9G) is not a true 4G tech, as it does not conform to all the specs, however LTE Advanced does.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. To the average user or "non-geek" let's say, all it really is would be marketing. 4G just sounds better than saying 3.5G, 3.75G or 3.9G.

    I had no idea that the Bold's were capable of utilizing "4g". Sprint has announced 4g coming to my area soon (hope it's not the RIM type of "soon" ). Hopefully within 2 months it won't really matter when I retire this Bold 9930 and have a BB10 in my hands.

    4g speeds on the 9930 would be nice, but kinda late for me as I'm looking forward to BB10 in a couple more weeks
