Three operators control 80% of the Russian mobile telecoms space, and they’ve all given up on the iPhone. What exactly do I mean by that? They’re no longer going to sell the iPhone to their customers directly. Why? Many reasons, but three immediately spring to mind.
Here’s some good news if you’ve just bought a Verizon iPhone 5 and travel abroad frequently.
iDownloadBlog confirms that the Verizon iPhone 5 under contract is unlocked on GSM 3G networks, which means that users will be able to use a nano-SIM card from a GSM carriers like AT&T.
Few minutes back, we reported that iPhone 5 won’t support simultaneous voice and data on Verizon or Sprint.
We were not sure if this was indeed a limitation of iPhone 5 or limitation of Verizon’s and Sprint’s 4G LTE network. We’ve just got the answer.
iPhone 5 supports faster 4G LTE networks, but it looks like it won’t support simultaneous voice and data on some carriers.
The Verge reports that Verizon has clarified that iPhone 5 customers won’t be able to surf the web while on a call even when they’re connected to LTE.
Earlier today, we reported that nTelos – a U.S. Regional carrier was going to start offering Apple’s iPhone from April 20th.
It looks like, nTelos was not the only regional carrier to get Apple’s iPhone.
Carriers are still citing shipping dates of more than 2-3 weeks for the month old iPhone 4S. The Wall Street Journal reports that surprisingly high demand is to blame for the short supply, not problems in manufacturing.
This Is My Next reports that AT&T is working with Apple to change the network indicator to “4G” from “3G” for their new iPhone 4S. As you may recall, the iPhone 4S supports 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, which is marketed by some carriers around the world as “4G” technology even though technically speaking it’s not “4G”.
