    I don't know if this has already been posted but I could not find anything on it.

    I seem to be missing the Cellular section under General that allows you to go in and toggle of LTE. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Sorry again if this has already been discussed.

    Mine had it in 7.0.3 but my SIM is in a different phone now so I can't check 7.0.4... I'd be a little pissed if they removed it though. Nothing worse than being in a fringe LTE area and watching your battery die as it jumps from LTE to 3g over and over again without a way to turn LTE off.

    Does turning off lte, even in a strong lte area, save battery life?

    I don't think LTE is worst than 3G ....

    So then would the only reason to turn off lte be in a fringe lte area?

    Yes, I'd say so myself.

    My previous carrier had LTE where I live and it was just on the fringe of a "double speed" signal.

    Definitely used more battery life than in the city centre where the signal was much better.

    I *think* LTE is better in terms of power than 3G.

    LTE and HSPA use the same amount of battery on the 5S. Since LTE is much faster, however, the phone should spend much less time with the radio activated for the same amount of data -- so as long as you have good LTE coverage, LTE will *save* battery.
