First picture with 2 bars is at my home which i couldn't even use 3G with my iP4, second photo is 1/4 mile from a tower. I am amazed by these extraordinary speeds. I am having no problem but i guess it could vary by phone.

EDIT: my pictures posted backwards.

I recently found two videos from Youtube which seem to show that there may be some kind of issue with the antenna of iPhone 5.

I'm interested if this is really happening. Is there similar of problem with the iPhone 5 antenna as there was with the antenna of iPhone 4?

If you don't have a problem, why are you bringing this up? Oh, wait, you want attention because now you're going to get twenty replies saying "this doesn't affect me".

Silly thread.

In my country carriers haven't even begun placing LTE towers. The frequency auction has yet to take place. I envy you LTE users! :(

I'm stuck with 3.6mbit/s download and 384kbit/s upload... And a 1GB data cap ofcourse. :mad:

There is another active message thread right on the first page with almost the same title.

Is it that hard to READ or SCAN the first page add to existing discussions?

This is just silly, the antennas are on the back, block the back by anything and the signal will go down a bit. I guess I am not surprised though, everybody wants a scandal. :rolleyes:
