    I always wanted to post this finding, however was lazy

    See attached pictures of my 16GB i5 and wife's 32GB i5, both on same OS.( This was noticed in ios6 too)

    See how the 16GB says Cellular and 32 GB says Mobile. Inside the Mobile/Cellular submenu too it says Mobile data/cellular data.
    What does your say?

    This is strange. I thought the menu names( is that the correct word) would be coded in the OS, which isn't the case.

    All of my 32gb iPhones say cellular. I've never seen mobile before. Interesting find.

    I notice one says Vodafone_ Mumbai and one say just Vodafone. Is there a difference in carriers?

    I'm wondering if that would make the difference.

    Just checked on my iPhone and noticed 3 different English languages:
    - English
    - Australian English
    - British English

    Australian and British English use Mobile term, whereas the English one uses Cellular.

    Hope this clears it up

    Definitely a language thing, as others have mentioned. In support: the 32GB model uses the British spelling of Center (Centre), whereas the 16GB sticks with the American (center).

    Both on same carrier. One was on wi-fi,which is why the Mumbai got chopped off.

    edit: The 32GB phone has an old sim card, which is why the provider name difference.

    Just checked on my iPhone and noticed 3 different English languages:
    - English
    - Australian English
    - British English

    Australian and British English use Mobile term, whereas the English one uses Cellular.

    Hope this clears up

    I have English as my Language ( General>International>Language). Need to check on my wife's phone.Thanks for the discovery.
