    Just a question! Why is the iPhone 5 not 4G ready in the uk? It's not on the list on Vodafone and my fella works for Telefonica and it not on there list too! Has apple been caught out be this or will the ios7 sort this out? I have a new iPad with a sim will this be 4g. Too?

    To get 4G on the iPhone 5 you have to be on EE.

    Hopefully the 5S or whatever they call the next model will support all the networks.

    It's the spectrum they are using (800mhz and 2.6ghz). Only EE support the iPhone 5 (and possible 3), which only supports 1800mhz, but all others will use a different spectrum. The
    iPhone 5S (or whatever the release) will no doubt correct this but the iPhone 5 will never work on those networks.

    It's the same for the iPad.

    4G isn't worth it yet in the UK. EE are just ripping people off but Three have said they won't change their prices. I'll wait for Three to get 4G and then switch, Three is definitely best value for money.
