That's just China. Apple times their FCC submissions properly to make sure that the device is released on time, and to make all necessary corrections so as to comply with the FCC. No need to worry.

I found this online. The article said that it cannot confirm. But looking at the LTE bands, it would appear that the 5S will not support 41. I can say that I am not surprised that it will not be tri-band LTE.

That was found to be a fake. I can't find who posted it, but they did a photo analysis and found discrepancies and confronted the person who made the photos and he confirmed that they were made in Illustrator. I'm looking for the article and will post when I find it.

Hey guys, what do you guys think the chances would be that the Sprint iPhone 5S will support LTE 800?

None of us know yet. It's basically 50/50 right now.

So, Josh, since you never seemed to get above the low to midrange Android handsets, if Apple offers a midrange option in the next iPhone, are you going to jump on that?

I'm not sure yet. I may get both and use the 5C on my Sprint phone connect line and the 5S on my main line, but I may have to wait until January to upgrade on my Sprint Phone Connect line. I'll be jumping straight in on the 5S and selling my 5 to compensate for the difference over a new contract price. If I do get a 5C, it'll be blue.

The blue iPhone 5C will most definitely be sold out first I think, because most people I ask if they could get their iPhone any color they say Blue.

I heard the Blue iPod Touch sold faster than the rest when they were released last year.

People can have the iPhone in any color -- so long as it's black.

What are Sprint's upgrade policies about new phones if you haven't reached the two year mark yet?  I got my iPhone 5 last October with Sprint.

I don't know. I won't be getting mine until October when my school refund comes in, so hopefully they will allow outright buying.

You have to buy the phone outright

If you have had your phone for one year and have been paying your bill on time you should have a early upgrade offer that will make it way cheaper than full price.

If that involves me trading in my current iPhone, then I'll pay full price. I can get more for my iPhone on eBay than trade in.

Josh, I'm not trying to stick my nose where it doesn't belong but, as your cyber friend, if by "school refund," you mean student loan money, be very careful with that sort of thing.

I don't think this requires a a trade in of any kind.

Yea, I've found Sprint to be very generous to long-term customers with accounts in good standing.

It actually does require the trade in or else the old device is marked stolen for the upgrade now program.

 

 

The way works at 12 months early is usually 225+upgrade price of phone - trade in value of old phone. So say the iPhone 5s comes out at 200 and the iPhone 5 trades in still at 200(right now it is 240 but obviously will go down ) it would cost 225 after trade in to upgrade.

In that case, Josh is right. He's pry better off selling his Apple device privately.

      So, we all know about the lovely iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User thread, and there are many different device focused threads across S4GRU, but there are none for us older iPhone users. So, why should they get to have all the fun? This thread is dedicated to anything and everything about our beautiful (Spark-less) iPhone 5's and 5S's.
       
      Discuss anything like jailbreaks, hardware problems, how much you love your device, how great it is to have at least one LTE band compared to the folks who still have 4's and 4S's, ask questions and maybe you can get some answers, etc. etc.
       
      Discuss!

      I just joined the LTE party recently, and lucky me, Sprint has started rolling out LTE where I spend most of my time. (Lehigh Valley PA, and Endicott, NY)
       
      Over the years I've read a few "scare" stories of Sprint users getting booted due to excessive data usage. My question is: At what point should I worry? In 2013, is there now a revised "safe zone" of data usage that doesn't raise any red flags? For some reason, I remember 5Gb being the magic number, but now that I've been using LTE, it seems I'm going to suck that up very quickly. 
       
      I know that Sprint has no qualms eliminating customers that use unauthorized tethering, but if I'm following all of the rules using my Sprint device over LTE, how high can I realistically go before Sprint starts to care? 10 gig? 15 gig? Do they even care as long as their users aren't using unauthorized tethering workarounds? 
       
      Also, if I do hit an extremely high amount of (legal) usage, do they send out a warning first, or immediately cancel service? 
       
      I've got a good thing going with my plan right now, and I don't want to be seen as an abuser of it. Since I'm kind of late to the LTE party having an iPhone 4S for so long, I'm not sure what's seen as excessive anymore. 
       
      Thanks for any input you guys can give!

      Via TUAW's article on Apple's relationship (or lack thereof) with China Mobile:
       
       
      We'll know for sure in 26 days, but it's fun to think about the iPhone 5S/5C being true global smartphones, capable of running on multiple bands -- and especially fun to think about the possibility of a tri-band device for us to play with on the new Sprint Network.

      BGR is either really full of it, or on to something, citing a user on Weibo:
      iPhone 5S: New leaked photos, purported full specs point to biggest ‘S’ upgrade ever
       
       
      I can't wait to upgrade my 4S, if anything, for the better battery. After 18 months, I can barely keep a charge past noon.
