    I've read a few reports but haven't seen a true confirmation.....did the iPhone 5 get an update to support HSPA+ 21 and HSPA+ 42?

    Thanks for not coming close to helping answer the question. :D

    LTE is great....if you are in an area with LTE coverage. But if not.....coming from the iPhone 4 which on AT&T maxes out at 3G and the iPhone 4S maxing out a HSPA+ 14.4.....I'm looking forward to seeing if the iPhone 5 can take advantage of any areas that AT&T has updated to HSPA+ 21.

    Awesome...thanks. Completely missed this as I was looking at the specs page.

    So AT&T maxes at HSPA+ 21 correct. T-Mobile is the only one doing HSPA+ 42....but you'd have to break contract to do that.
