I highly doubt it will have LTE support. That is why I'm going to wait for 6th generation iPhone before I upgrade.

Last i heard, a while back it had been said that 4G would not be implemented on the iphone 5 (or whatever it will be called, because some ppl get upset that some of us call it the iphone 5) well anyways i knew a bunch of ppl that have the EVO and have NEVER used 4G. If you want 4g speeds and live in a 4G area then get a different phone and stop complaining that the next iphone NEEDS 4G. My brother has dsl and everytime i go to his house i connect to my iphone because its faster than his crappy DSL so im happy with the speeds. Apple will wait like they always do, why put 4g and make the phone itself laggy, id rather have them keep it at 3G with the upgraded chipset, dual core, and more ram. Heck id still but the next iphone if it had the same specs as the 4 haha

I could care less about about processor, storage, ram, or camera upgrades. Just give me one of those previously mentioned along with screen upgrade and I'm sold.

well if the iphone 5 will have LTE i can wait for it but if they release it in fall without LTE i will be really mad that we had to wait and it doesnt have it in there. Yea LTE is in a small handful of markets however all the newer phones are touting 4G 4G so Apple wants to be able to tout it too that way all the android people can say well i have flash i have flash and thats the only thing i have. although i would like apple to see what the EVO 3D is doing that phone is gonna be some kick *** competition if it ever leaves sprint. Just saying rather have my iPhone 5 but the EVO 3D is hardcore

Y'all really need to do some research on Sprint's 4G WIMAX, Verizon's LTE, and AT&T's LTE networks. Real world tests don't show much speed increase if any over a high quality 3G network. T-Mobile is touting their network as 4G and AT&T is touting their HSPA+ network as 4G based on technicalities. The Atrix 4G on AT&T's LTE network is a huge fail when is came to actual data speeds. It's all marketing crap and the fact that most everyone here is begging for LTE without doing a shred of research of when it will be available in your market or how well it even works means that the marketing gimmicks are working.

Darn,I was looking forward to the upgrade if it's delayed I hope it's for good reasons and not for 3d :P

Why does my 3G speed fluctuate all the time? Usually the upload speed is pretty consistent....but lately the Download speed has been all over the place. I'll run a test and it will be 1400kbps or so......a few seconds later I'll run another test and it will be in the toilet at 200 or 300 kbps.

Great, a rumour on top of another rumour!

Even if Apple didn't make the i5 LTE capable it wouldn't really matter, 4G is going to be pretty spotty for a couple of years. So there's no rush to have it in the next device. If they do then sweet, if they don't...that's cool too.

Personally, why not put it in the next iteration. If you make it backwards compatible with current network technology there's no reason not to do it.
Also, if Apple wants to keep up with all the Android phones they NEED to release another one this summer if only with the A5 Processor....

Faster speeds without unlimited data is a total joke... Google, please buy T-Mobile and show them how it's done!
