My iPhone 5 was unlocked and roamed flawlessly to LTE on EE in the UK. Now it no longer does so after installing 6,1 or 6.1,2. Sprint says they have not done this so it must be Apple. I paid retail for this phone so it is not under contract. It is fully unlocked. LTE is enabled. Just not found. Was working fine before. Anyone else have this experience? This sure makes Android phones look good.
I am a Sprint subscriber. The iPhone5 was purchased from Sprint but replaced by Apple and is unlocked. I was hoping 6.1.4 might do something but the issue persists. Strangely, while trying various and sundry install and restore actions, I had a failed restore, and then LTE worked. For a while. However, when I returned to the U.S. and went back to Sprint and then came back to the U.K., it again did not work. It connects fine to EE, just not to LTE. LTE is enabled. Situation is the same even if I restore as new so it is not an app. It also persists after a DFU restore. Apple Stores in both U.S. and U.K. tell me the problem is impossible.
