GOOD CHOICE! I have the same one, best case I've had on any of my iPhones.

Oh, and sometimes the phone slows down a LOT, but only when I get a group text message. It practically freezes the phone.
I have experienced this too. Normally the phone is fast and smooth.

Seem like its a hardware issue that apple is trying to deny, and saying a the ios6.0.1 will fix, but it didn't

1. Wifi bug, it drops and won't reconnect automatically. You would have to re enter the pw again.
2. Can't save photo when holding down a pics, press save, it does not save to photo.
3. Camera light goes off first, then take pics.
4. Yellow Screen
5. Dead pixels.

I have problem 1 2 and 3.
I am SO GLAD that my iPhone5 doesn't exhibit any of those issues.

Much less now.
The premium was due to people not being able to get one in store right away.

Agreed!

My WIFI on the phone is excellent and it never drops. In fact, this phone is awesome on a WIFI connection (..slow on the 3G network). I wish that Apple had built in the capability to pick up 4G WIMAX as well. LTE will probably not hit my area until sometime next year, but I get 4G WIMAX.

I think M3Inline6 is out of the US... In Tampa, unless I'm in a big building, I ALWAYS have LTE.

Well I'd googled the issues.

Update does fix dead pixel

Photo saving is caused by enabling privacy of app.

Wifi drop is still not fixed with update. To fix it, you would have to enter it manually by going to "other" enter network name>choose security>enter password. This will only save your setting. On my ip4 it's the same issue as the ip5. So it has to be software.

I'm actually in California, but I don't pick up LTE in Rancho.

Mine won't pick up anything but 3G unless I'm in an LTE area. My Google Nexus picked up 4G here, so I know that the signal is available.

Have you tried rebooting? That worked for me the one time that it occurred on my phone.

Unless I've misinterpreted his post completely, I'm just letting him know that iPhone has the capability to pickup 4G signal, whatever that is.

Yeah, you're picking up 4G LTE ....or LTE for short, not 4G WIMAX, which is the "old" 4G tech. I was stating that I wish Apple had built in the capability to pick up the older 4G network (..especially because Sprint is behind on their LTE coverage) on the Sprint iPhone 5's. Me being on Sprint's network may have lent a bit to the confusion.

I'm on AT&T. I've seen it display LTE or 4G, separately. It didn't look like they were the same or why would they display 2 different icons? Not that I noticed any difference.

4G is 3G HSPA+, which theoretically can be as fast as LTE so AT&T calls it "4G" even though it isn't. Other carriers have followed suit I believe. It is slower than LTE, generally by a good amount, but they are both very fast.

In my testing I average around 7 Mbps on "4G" with a max of 13-14 Mbps.
On LTE I average around 35 Mbps with a max of 62 Mbps.

Yea, 4G and LTE are for sure completely different. LTE is CRAZY fast, almost as fast as my FIOS WIFI... We did a little experiment with two 5s and LTE was just a SPLIT second behind WIFI. I try to use LTE as much as possible just because I never seem to reach my 3gig limit-gotta stick it to the man!(AT&T)
