Is there a way to tell which type of network I'm connected to?
By looking at the indicator on the top left of your screen...
You mean the one that says "4G"?
Now that AT&T considers HSPA+ 4G, it doesn't differentiate. Unless I'm missing a setting.
I have the AT&T 4G model. I have not added the data plan yet but mine says 4G but according to AT&T's map I am in the LTE data network. Should it be showing LTE or does it only show it after I add the data plan?
I'm in the same boat. I'm leery about buying the data plan if I am not getting LTE.
I called AT&T and they were of no help.
He said 4G is LTE and LTE is in my area.
Waiting for more info here before I get the data plan.
If you are on the LTE network it will say "LTE" in the corner. If you drop back to HSPA+ it will switch to "4G" and if you drop back to HSPA it will switch the indicator to "3G"
Yes. It says LTE when you are in an LTE area. Like mine does right now.
that's the rub
What rub? It is giving you three clear indicators for three different frequencies and performance points. What's rubbing? Get WD40.
I don't know what rub is, but yeah, that's what happens.
Did you have to activate it to see the LTE or was LTE showing when you first turned on the iPad without activating the cellular data services?
You have to activate a data plan for the LTE to show up, it'll only say 3g or 4g w/o a plan
AT&T needs to call HSPA+ H+ and LTE LTE. That is the correct terms. My iPad said 4G when it was in my iPad and I know we do not have 4G.
Thanks! That helps a lot to clarify my worries since I'm in an LTE area but only see 4g shown. I have not activated data yet.
Bodyglide would be a better choice. Just sayin...
I had to activate it.
It's from Shakespeare. "Aye, there's the rub". Roughly, it means the "catch".
