Why would you buy a 4G phone when you live in an area that doesn't even have 3G coverage?
AT&T doesn't have a 4G data network anywhere in the country yet, let alone in Iowa. If there is actually a chance of a 4G iPhone coming out, it would have to be on Sprint right now, they have about 40 markets up and running today. Verizon is ready to start rolling out there 4G network in 2011. AT&T is bringing up the rear and probably won't start a 4G rollout until 2012.
So, if the iPhone stays tied to the AT&T network, I would guess you won't be sitting in your living room in Central Iowa doing some 4G web surfing with an iPhone until 2014, or 2015. So no need to wait on that, go get a new phone today, your contract will be up before this happens!
I bought the HTC Evo and love it. Battery life is pretty bad but with the upgraded battery(3500mah from my old htc, just waiting for the new back plate from seidio.) I now have zero complaints about the phone.
Are you shutting off the bluetooth, wifi, 4G, and GPS radios when you aren't using them? I've heard with doing that the device will make it through the day no problem. And really that is all I need, since I've started using smart phones I've always charged them every night.
Also, where did you buy your extended battery? I don't think Sprint sells them yet, but I would like to pick one up when I upgrade to the EVO next month.
