    I am planning to preorder the iPhone 5 tomorrow like many of you, but am a bit confused regarding LTE.

    I know LTE offers super duper speeds and all that, but I'm reading online that there are several versions of the iPhone 5 this time, unlike the 4S which was a world phone for all (regardless if the carrier is Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T, the 4S is the same version on all).

    Soooo, is the iPhone 5 still a world phone that I can use abroad? I don't care if LTE doesn't work abroad as 3G or 4G would be fine....but I need to know the phone will work for calls and data....

    Can someone shed some light....Thanks!

    I don't see why the 3G availability would be any different from the 4S.
