Sorry if this is in the wrong area (I didn't know if I was meant to post this in the spark fourms or in here because iPhone) Anyway, Whenever I try to activate 4G on my phone it acts as if it's trying to activate it but then it just ends up saying "3G"   Have checked and my area is 4G. My Samsung Galaxy S5 used 4G perfectly and 99% of the time it stayed on 4G.   My iPhone model (in settings) is MF356X/A but the back of it says A1530 (looked up online and apparently it's an Australian model)   Works perfectly fine on the Spark network and everything but like I said 4G just won't activate. Can someone help me please? I've tried resetting network setting, resetting my phone as if it just came out of the box and hard restarting; all with no luck.

If I'm reading that phones specs right, it only does 1800, not 700, so large chunks of Spark's 4g network will not work with that phone.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

5S does not support 4G 700Mhz band 28 so will depend on location if you get 4G coverage

Where are you located?

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
