    Seems to me if you don't have in your area it won't connect.

    AT&T? Patience. Let it sit for an hour. Or reboot. Or call them. In my case, waiting an hour for the phone to fully activate worked.

    You already answered your own question. No LTE no 4G

    This is inaccurate. No LTE means no LTE. AT&T has a 4g HSPA+ network here in Fresno. My phone reads 4G. And it does not say LTE.

    Are you saying that you have no data connection at all? Have you tried going into

    Settings->General->Reset->Reset Network Settings?

    I don't have a 5, but when I got my iPhone 4 I had the same issue (no 3G or E). The reset fixed it.

    you might be having the same issue a number of us are - you can't connect to 3G (it's not ****ing 4G, it's HSPA+) or LTE once you've restored a previous iTunes/iCloud backup.

    If so, restoring your phone to factory (or reset in iTunes) sees to fix it, but once you restore your old backup the same issue pops back up. No solution yet that I've seen.
