Re: Iphone 5 signal loss

I am also having issues. My iPhone 5 always shows that it is connected to 4G (never switches to 3G?) and I usually have half the number of bars (if not less) than my girlfriend's iPhone 4 (3G) signal. What gives? I thought 4G wasn't even out yet in Minneapolis so why does my phone show that it is always connected to 4G and why won't it switch to 3G if that signal is better? I've tried turning off LTE in settings and it doesn't change anything.
4g LTE service is not expected to be launched until before the holidays by the end of the year in mpls/st. paul. the iphone 4 does not have the radio capable of handling the HSPA+ which is technically 4G speeds. it will only show 3G. The iphone 4S and 5 are capable of HSPA+ and the iphone 5 will do 4G LTE which is not yet available. although i have seen reports of people seeing it on the highway when stuck in traffic. cant confirm that though.
looks like they have turned on the LTE where i work in woodbury right next to the 94/494/694 loop.
