ALTRON: I suppose iphone 5 users go through a bit more battery while running on LTE?


I guess it's true, "How do you know if someone has an iPhone? They tell you."

It removes DC as well? Bummer! I may as well leave it on then. Thanks!

mrkgoo: Interesting!



I have an iPhone 5 and just now notice that it has an 'enable LTE' slider that it didn't before. I wonder if that came in the 6.1.2 update or was activated when 4g coverage became available?



Anyway, I'm on prepay so no 4G for me. I was just wondering if switching LTE off will reduce battery drain somewhat? I know johnr says battery won't change much ON LTE, but what about off? In my experience, turning off radios you don't use prevents them from searching, which IS a big drain.



And if I do turn it off on the iPhone, will the 3G connection still be the DC 3G?





Doesn't turning LTE off remove access to dual carrier as well?

That is what I found.


Nope not related DC and 4G are very different

Most important thing in this launch is where did you get the DeLorean or is that John's personal car ??Smile

Oh, I guess that makes more sense. So disabling lte on my iPhone means I will just use 3G, and that will still be dual-carrier if available?

Johnr, are plans going to be increased? You can go through $120 worth of data in 10 minutes.

Clearly not a question I am going to answer on a public forum before any official coms, Please just don't ask these questions

I was wrong, 3G DC does work when you turn off LTE, it was just a coincedence when I turned it off previously I had a slow connection, tested again today and with LTE turned off I still got 20mbps.

My appologies for the misinformation.

For now they do have maps of the coverage area instore, I was shown one yesterday when I happened to be at a Vodafone store for another reason and asked about 4G.
