    The real question is, what version of iOS does it ship with?

    I'd bet 6.1.3 but would be nice if it was 6.1.2 or lower:)

    More than likely 6.1.3, Apple wouldn't be that amazing to ship with 6.1.2

    Thanks for the information but mine doesnt support the full Tmobile LTE AWS band (1700/2100).

    I'd rather keep my jailbroken iphone 5 and not lose my tweaks and still get speeds up to 21 mbbps.

    yes all iPhone 5's will support LTE on AWS and HSPA/HSPA+ on PCS. The difference is the new version will support HSPA/HSPA+ on AWS and will support additional LTE bands,

    This is good information for anyone looking to buy a T-Mobile compatible iPhone from eBay, Craigslist, etc.

    Geez, they could have avoided all the confusion (especially if buying from a 3rd party) by SIMPLY calling it B1428 or A1428-1 or even RALPH. :rolleyes:

    Or just enabled AWS to begin with when they shipped the first iPhone 5's.
