    My 5s is on AT&T but I haven't seen a LTE on my phone just 4g sous that the same thing or should I return it to the apple store
    1. If LTE isn't in your area then you won't see it (check your coverage on the AT&T website). 2. Is LTE enabled on your iPhone? (Settings > Cellular > Enable LTE). 3. If all else fails take it to your provider or apple (your provider is preferred).

    Not the same thing but your phone is fine. Your carrier probably doesn't have LTE in your area yet.

    Thast exactly what I'm thinking. My Verizon 5s shows the LTE symbol but if I'm not mistaking the speed is the same

    Oh alright! That makes sense! But is their a speed differance between 3G and 4G
    Ask wind if they support a DC-HSDPA connection.

    It does support 4g connectivity. It all depends on your carrier.

    The iphne does have 4g. However, the term "4g" has been completely demolished this last generation of mobile data....

    4g refers to 4th generation standards of mobile data and is a major bump in speeds ect. I don't know all the specifics but you can find more details here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4G.

    LTE, HSP+, and WiMAX are all considered 4g although technically LTE is the only true 4g. HSPA+ uses the same radio and frequencies as their 3G network but is able to have much high speeds. HSPA+ and WiMAX have similar speeds but have a much Lowe cap than LTE.

    If you see a phone that says 4g and lte its likely you are on a gsm carrier who supports HSPA+ as no additional radio is necessary to get HSPA+. It's less confusing for customers to market HPSA+ as 4g and LTE as something better because having 2 4g's would be confusing (though it can already be confusing if you don't know better.)

    Sprint and verizon are both CDMA. If you don't have lte then you will drop to 3G. WiMAX is no longer available on new phones and is being phased out.

    To make this simple LTE is 4g. Anything else is clever marketing which makes what would technically be 3.5g appear as 4g. (Although there is nothing wrong with 3.5g! It is just not 4g and should not have been marketed that way.)

    I find the lack of knowledge in this thread disturbing. As was stated 4G refers to 4th generation technology, and the chance of seeing 5G is quite slim because what makes 4G, 4G is speed. I forget the numbers right now and I don't have time to search right now, but there is a minimum download and upload speed that must be met to be considered 4G. Your technologies that support 4G speeds are WiMAX for Sprint, HSPA+ and LTE (High Speed Packet Access, and Long Term Evolution) for T-Mobile and AT&T, and LTE for Verizon. Those being in the US of course, I can't comment on other countries because I don't live there and don't know what the cell providers use. Also, I don't know if it happened, but Verizon was supposedly going to start implementing LTE stage 2 in the US by the end of 2013, this is still LTE (4G) but at twice the current speed.

    Ok so wind only supports up to HSPA+ not DC-HSDPA

    That's about normal for HSPA+ and about the same speeds I used to get on my 4S with bell. With DC-HSDPA your download speeds would almost double.
