Re: iPhone 5 LTE speed

I'm wondering if people are seeing a 4G icon when LTE isn't available.  I've been hearing a lot about 3G and LTE but I'm wondering if anybody has kciked into the 4G territory as that icon is avialble and Rogers has HSDPA+ (I believe) on their network.

No, Rogers has not added the "4G" icon on the iPhone's yet. This is something Apple Canada & the carriers in Canada need to work on. AT&T shows 3G, 4G & LTE on theirs.

Is this something that comes from a carrier profile update on the iPhone? Do other phones do this? How can you tell what kind of service you're really getting then?

@cain04

All the other phones will show H+ or 4G. This is something like i said Apple Canada & all the carriers in Canada need to look in. Bell, Telus, Fido, Rogers, Virgin & the rest only show GSM / EDGE / 3G & LTE ( if LTE is on the carrier).

You can not tell unless you use a app like Speed Test to see how much you the speeds.

Most likely Rogers needs to push out a update in order to do this OR it may change by it self. A few people have said on their 4S they seen 4G icon but never proved it & they said it only came up for a second & thats all.

I hope somebody at Rogers reads this and gets their act together on this.

Also Meow, on a seperate note, any scratching on your phone? Did you get the black? I'm afraid to get a slim case on mine that is hard as I'm afraid it will scratch the edges going on and coming off.

Also, any dry application shields that you can recommend?

I got the 32GB Black version. No scratches or dents at all. I am using the Otter Box Defender case right now. I am only using this case on the phone.

Re: iPhone 5 LTE speed

Did you guys apply any screen protector for both sides of the phone?

Re: iPhone 5 LTE speed

I don't have my phone yet (I moved to "In Progress" last night so I don't know when I'll be getting it). I bought the "potentially plagued" black version and want to keep it in good shape. I want something slim but something soft as I'm afraid a tight fitting hard shell will scratch the black off going on of coming off. I'm thinking of using it without case and just a screen protector. But that beautiful aluminum scratching scares me.
