The Iphone 5s & Iphone 5c [not Tri-Band LTE] (was "Next iPhone to be announced on September 10")

Recommended Posts

Just find it weird that only iphones are using band 26 like android devices are being blocked or something.

Has there been more B26 reports that I am unaware of? I didn't even think it was available until I sa tigmd99 post about it.

someone from North Wisconsin has been showing screen shots of B26 connections for a week or two now in the premier sponsor forums, also using an iphone.

Why is no one withba android device picking up band 26

 

I only know of one Android user who was definitely in the presence of a confirmed live Band 26 site.  And he had a G2 that has not received the update yet.  I wouldn't draw any definitive conclusions for that, yet.

Hopefully today is the day for the update.

Has anyone had any problems with their 5S not turning on immediately when you push the home button? Mine has been doing it on and off, and 5 times now I've had to force (re)boot to get it to turn back on.

 

I'm taking it in to Apple tomorrow. Hopefully they won't trade for refurb if something is wrong.

I've had that happen. Most recently it'll freeze while I'm trying to go back to the home screen but it normally corrects itself.

Thought Apple acknowledged this issue.

 

And apple typically gives a refurbished item.... but never have had a problem with that.

My problems only occur coming out of a locked screen. It's really strange.

 

Also, do you think they replace lightning cables free of charge? I have 3 or 4 of them that are bad.

if they're under a year old, I think they will. Just say you got them with the 5s

Thanks!

 

It's a good thing I have AppleCare+ on my 5S. Because this time was the longest my phone wouldn't turn back on.

I've had my broken EarPods replaced under warranty so I'd assume they'll do the same for a lightning cable.

Look into sugru.com . Cheap affordable malleable plastic that can fix a broken charger cable in minutes lol. I'm getting a pack for my mbp charger which got destroyed in a vacuum. They obviously have to still be working though.

Update: Took it in, they tested it and everything looked fine except low RAM warnings. They can test dropped calls too and told me how many were carrier initiated, and how many were iOS initiated. Then they told me to watch what apps are allowed to use Background App Refresh. So for the sake of time, I turned it off. So tonight, it did it again. Not once, but twice. However, this time both lock ups happened while the screen was on. So back to Apple it'll go again. Do you think I need to demand a new 5S at this point, or wait and see what they say? I won't do a factory restore as I know it's not the install that's the problem.

Record it happening. Have a second device ready and bring it with you. My brothers device was locking up, and doing an apple reset logo over and over and over consistently, but would then return to normal for a short period of time. I recorded it and they just gave him a new one. They will probably just ask if you have done a restore blah blah blah etc. Just say I've done everything, and would prefer just to have a new phone. ( after showing them the issue). 

 

Edit: remember. They have to treat everyone stupid because half the people in there are stupid and have no idea what iCloud is.

Yeah, the tech I used to get at that store wasn't there yesterday. As for your brothers device, was it a brand new or refurb? I don't really want a refurb when I'm paying Sprint for a brand new device.

Well. He had gone in with his original device for a replacement because it had water damage. So he paid the $79. When they brought out the new 5s in the little white box, it had KGB written on it. Now the apple employee said that that just meant it could be used for parts if it needed too. So I am assuming it was tested, and if it was tested it might've been refurbished. This was the device that then failed the day after he got it. So we went back and they gave him a new device with nothing written on the box. It didn't have iOS 7.1.1 installed so it was probably never used before.

 

They said it was new.

Can't remember, was it the iPhone 5s, iPhone5, or neither/both that could be used internationally with GSM networks?

Thanks! I was looking it up for a friend (haven't kept up with iPhone in a while), but there was some conflicting info out there and I trust s4gru the most of course.

Quick question:  If an iPhone 5s/5c is connected to LTE, is there any way to determine which voice frequency it is connected to?  The Field Test screen seems to only show 1 connection at a time, and I read in another thread that LTE locked 1X out of the Field Test screens, but that was several months ago, and I wondered if anyone had since figured out a way to see both.

 

Thanks in advance.

      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.

    • Just did some quick adding and 70% of the US population is in the largest 114 US MSAs. If Dish covered every MSA above 475k population (so, everything from Lafayette, LA on up), and service stopped completely outside MSA borders, they'd hit their 70%. That's while covering none of places as large as Reno, NV. Oh, and if you cover the San Juan, PR MSA, you can just hit the top 110 other MSAs, down to Pensacola, FL (so, everything with >= 500k population). Now, I fully expect Dish to omit some MSAs in the top 114 in favor of others that are closer to their footprint, or have more Boost Mobile user concentration, but this isn't a ridiculously huge lift...and is why Dish is saying they'll be building out only 15k cell sites by 2023...and they'll have help from T-Mobile as TMo casts off a bunch of redundant sites, many of which would love to immediately get a new tenant.
    • Thing is, building a coverage focused network to cover 70% of the US population using 600 isn't *that* expensive. It's the capacity play that's expensive. You need capacity if you have a ton of customers, which 10MM isn't. Alltel had 12 million customers when Verizon bought them, and covered a larger area than Dish will need to. If you spend $5 billion building a network for, say, 15 million customers, and don't have to subsidize those customers, that's not a huge outlay in the scheme of things.
    • My LG G8 doesn't have never as an option. 10 minutes is the max amount.
    • T-Mobile if very dense in my area too.   Sprint in my area always needed a densification.     So no... it's not Unique.
