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.....

    • I just pulled up my trails and they all have TACs listed. So no nulls, zeroes or -1's. But there is huge swaths of trails missing. It doesn't appear to log or at least keep any NR driving data unless it is NR only. If it's mixed NR/LTE, then the only thing appearing in the trails is LTE. I am also getting this error.  So it is seeing invalid TAC values, but then when I look at logs, it's like it's deleting them.  Robert
    • I wanted to get on with Genesis, but waited too long.  Just moved my line to BM and another to RP this week.  Experience switching to BM was fantastic though.  Hopefully through them I can at some point get a new sim, or go esim to ride on the Dish network when it exists.
    • Do you see the TAC displayed as -1 in the exported file or is it blank/0? I took a look at your upload on Monday at roughly 12:30 and I’m not seeing any non-valid TAC values - not even -1s, 0s or blanks…
    • Hey @mikejeep - I just shot you a diagnostic from my new Galaxy Flip last night. I’m not able to see Verizon n5 in-app when connected to a midband anchor. 
    • I'm having issues during a WiFi call where the caller can here me but I can't hear them. There are a few bug trackers on Google, but the problem appears to date back to at least early 2021. Appears to maybe also be a T-Mobile specific issue. I'd guess it's technical issues like this that caused them to discourage bringing the Pixel 5 onto their network. And why they didn't even sell it through T-Mobile in the first place. Anyone still here with a Pixel 5? Ever see this issue? Anyone with knowledge of the problem or insight? I'm about to just buy a different phone. Probably won't be a Pixel.
