    Hi All,

    We all know that Sprint's Data on the iPhone 4S is SLOW. So will the new iPhone 5 be on Sprint LTE? Is it right so it will be faster Data? Also is Sprint's iPhone be a world phone? Will you be able to insert a Sim Card like the 4S? Thanks!!

    The new iPhone 5 will be on Sprint LTE so data should be faster. From what I've read the VZW/Sprint phone is not necessarily a world phone anymore, don't quote me on this though. I'm sure other people will have more information on this?

    It will not be a world phone in the sense it will get LTE all over the world, it's just not technically possible right now. It's complicated but the way LTE is set-up to get it work with all the frequencies out there would make the phone huge to get all the needed components in there. It just doesn't make sense with the tech available now. It should still be a world phone in the GSM sense though.
