Just purchased the iPhone 5. I have noticed that when LTE is enabled the signal strength for phone drops to about 1-2 bars. When you switch to 3g the cellphone coverage rises to 4-5 bars. My guess is this due to the connections to LTE towers are not up to speed for cell phone coverage yet. Has any one else experienced this issue with their iPhone 5. Would like to know if most people are having the same bevahior. I am considering going to Apple Store to have them investigate. However if this current problem with the LTE network then there is not much Apple Store can do..
And if there is any knowledgble Rogers folks out there do you have any updates on when the LTE towers cell phone connectivity will be corrected?
Thanks and I look forward to your reply.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I have the same issue, one bar on the new Iphone 5, even when I go outside my house. I also, sometimes get No Network status on the phone and sometimes unable to call out. I was told by tech. Support to have me switch the Network to 3G and it should solve the problem. It seems to me Rogers have no fully implement LTE into the whole network yet or they might be some issues that need to be addressed. Also, I have one bar status even on my old phone Nokia E31 which does not use LTE. The area I am at does not have any highrises or commerical buildings around, and I do not have my wireless router turn on all the time. Guess there is an issue with the cell tower and I am in the weak or border line area.
love to have Rogers to investigate and get back to me.
I live in a basement suite, although it's about half way above ground, and get a very poor signal over 3G on my iPhone 4S. I experimented with a blue tooth headset with the phone sitting on a window sill and that helped a bit. The best solution for me, though, was when Rogers brought out One Number several months ago. When I'm home, I use my computer for phone calls instead of the cell phone, and it works perfectly. It's just like Skype and will also do video calls.
Yes, i'm following the Rogers One Number forum and have reported a couple of my own problems. It works pretty well for me when I use it, though, which is all I care about. I know this is an LTE thread, not 3G, but posted about RON in case it might help someone else.
