    Anyone have a list of the carriers that will support Wideband Audio on the iPhone 5?

    Found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wideband_audio

    There's a list there, but I am sure it's incomplete.

    Wideband Audio and HD voice are basically the same. My Sprint Evo 4G LTE supports it. Wonder if it will work between carriers and between different phone models...

    Well, Sprint's data network is complete crap right now. Sometimes, it's unusable. And last thing they want to do is to make it worse by allowing HD Voice on a huge influx of iPhone 5 users that will surely come. Maybe after their Network Vision plan is nearing completion, they may flip the switch.

    On a side note. I called a friend of mine who has Evo 4G LTE from mine, and did not hear anything special.

    Yeah they did, but the two Cook rattled off where both UK carriers which leads me to believe that it won't be on Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T. I don't think we will see this in the US for a little bit. (Which is what I am assuming you care about since it says you are from Colorado)

    Indeed you're right, I'm looking to see if it will be available on Verizon. Oh well hopefully it will come later.

    I hope it comes to Verizon as well. On the bright side Verizon doesn't care if we use FaceTime over cellular!

    That's definitely a plus, except my family has AT&T and they don't have a shared plan. So I won't be able to FaceTime with them, unless they're on Wi-Fi.
