Thread: Delay in iPhone 5 Release May Have Something to Do With LTE

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.
    Would you care to direct those of us who haven't researched the so-called "4G" networks to some informative links that you have found worthy?
    I'm surprised there haven't been any false advertisement suits against these carriers if it's not truly 4G.

    4G - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Here's a good one that shows T-Mobile's "4G" (actually 3G) network beating out Sprint's 4G WIMAX network.

    Documented 4G phones slower than 3G phones on AT&T's network.

    I think the new phone is gonna be called iPhone 4G, i think its gonna be the same thing they did with the 3G and the 3GS, no cosmetic changes just the inside, iPhone 5 wont come until next year with a bigger screen.

    Ummm, Thunderbolt?

    The iPad 2 should have been 4g

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

    Do you think before you type? Or even read the posts before yours?

    Unless you live in New York or LA, there is no need for a 4G device.

    Its just adding more needless crap inside the device jacking the price up and draining the battery more.

    Thunderbolt implementation in the new MacBooks is completely different. Its more like their use of FireWire ports. Looking at their history with computers, they like to have weird ports, and try to be trendsetters with their ports. They killed the floppy disk on Macs before they were obsolete and have use less common ports for video output like DVI, and DisplayPort. If you tell tech people about those ports they are aware that they won't have many compatible accessories but will be excited anyways. Average people won't know what they are and will be happy to just have their USB ports.

    But if you put a 4G radio in the new iPhone, even if it is backwards compatible with 3G networks, tech people will be excited and know it will be spotty coverage. Average people will get really excited and not realize that they will not actually be getting 4G speeds and will be upset and frustrated with Apple that their product didn't work like it was supposed to, and Apple will lose those people

    In short, that is bull. Apple is known for it's innovation, but rolling out an iPhone on this new "4G" that isn't even fully rolled out yet isn't innovation. It's being ridiculous. Come on Apple! Get it straight! If you want money, don't put in 4G! Put in what really matters! (Cloud Storage)

    Well, I'm on 5g so ya'll need to step up your game. Wha, wha????

    maybe they are going to wait and release a gsm and cdma iphone5 at the same time? i mean if i was on verizon and just bought a ip4, it would kind of piss me off that there is a new gsm version and not one for cdma. i just hope it wont take until summer of 2012, my at&t contract is up in Oct....(fingers crossed)

    I'm still standing by prediction that the iPhone 5 will be in stores between June 19-29.

    be glad they didn't. The battery would have sucked more and would have been slow. Just like the 3G.

    Since we are jumping the gun, lets talk about them new iPad 5's with 4D screens. I mean iPad 4's 3D screen was great but compaired to 4D it's crap.

    I got an iPhone 4 so I guess I am waiting until iPhone 6 with 5G or what ever is out by then.

I think the iPhone needs an upgraded chipset to utilize 14.4Mbs instead of LTE at this point in time.
    One of the reasons for me to wait and to upgrade next year (2012).
    iPhone 4 is fast enough for now. There's no need to get iPhone 5 until AT&T is ready with its LTE technology.

    On the side note: I also think this was one of Apple strategy to launch CDMA iPhone 4 early this year. Apple has already planned to postpone iPhone 5 this summer. Why making changes on the iPhone 4 if the wireless carriers are not even ready yet to provide a faster network?

    So glad I ditched my 3G last year for iPhone 4 and not waiting for the white model.

    Besides the ugly buttons visible from the front of the phone, that mock up in the pic is the sexiest phone I have ever seen.

    This move wouldn't make any sense, why break the refresh cycle in order to add a feature that only America will be able to use, and even that will be limited use till 2013. The bidding or LTE network availability hasn't even begun yet in the UK.

    In my opinion it will be better to wait till next year when the feature can be used to greater effect.

    Hell do we even need to be up to date with all the technology?? We've had worse cameras and no flash for ages now yet we still prefer it over android and other competing OS'. what's one year without a feature that can only be utilised by a small percent of the Market?

    I agree, I was Apple I wouldn't bother putting in LTE network technology, knowing that it would not be widely available for a couple of years, then put it in to iPhone 5 4G in 2012/13 assuming the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 5.
