4G in columbus, Ohio but not working on iPhone 5


Recommended Posts

Ok I had a android with 4G and it worked fine , so now I own the iPhone 5 and no 4G or anything what's going on???

 

Well that proves it right there, android is better than iphone 5. Seriously though, you probably came from an android 4g wimax device which is not compatible with iphone 5's 4g lte capability. As stated already, there isn't any 4g lte in your area yet.

I do need the education I thought pretty much there all the same just fancy names! So why is it that's sprints website shows my area as a WiMAX /4G I think and iam guessing the iPhone 5 is LTE only???

 

That's what I just stated.

I wonder how many other people this has happened to? Can't be a happy day for them.

Depends on if they read before they purchased. Also depends on where they purchased from. All the Sprint reps are trained to differentiate between 4G and 4G LTE.

No worries. Sprint says they will have almost everyone covered by 2014...:D

4G WiMax and 4G LTE are two completely different things. Your Android was a WiMax phone, your iPhone is an LTE phone.

 

Hence your WiMax phone does not work on LTE, and vice versa.

 

Capishe?

 

Thank you I understand now very well explained, still a sweet phone

You do indeed have a very nice phone. If you can hold out 6 months or so, perhaps sooner, you should start to see 4G LTE start to light up in your area, and then your phone will suddenly become even sweeter.

The iPhone 5 is a great phone. Here in Miami I've already experienced it with sprint LTE and let me tell you it's great. The super snappy A6 chip along with the LTE make for a great combination. Stay tuned.....

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
