I don't think you really understand what unlocked means. In my point of view it means that you can use your phone with any network and that you could use any service of it, if it is supported on the device. Apple should be a shamed if they are really waiting for Mobistar and Telenet.
Anyway, we will see what happens. Proximus 3G isn't that slow either.
There is that word again...

but works your 4G with Mobistar on antwerp? :-) you are a Mobistar 4G testing user you say

please go away, your nonsense are of no interest to me.
I can't support them any longer.

I can't confirm it works with Mobsitar LTE as the test is tied to a data sim and it's not a nanosim. But it will work as it has the same specs as the Belgacom LTE network.

Can you all please stop ******** and moaning. Apple is doing nothing illegal...the phone works just fine
with all networks and with the right software update will also work with the Belgacom 4G. A supported network
basically means they have a commercial deal with that operator for visual voicemail and other things.
Commercial logic telks you they'll wait till after a mobistar/telenet 4G launch. A pity for all us Bgc users but
nothing illegal. I'm sure we'll all have 4G soon enough...

It's illegal when Apple would refuse to support the Belgacom LTE network when it eventually supports the Mobistar network like KiltedTim is suggesting.

This is the last time I bought an iPhone.
DO YOU HEAR THAT, APPLE?
Currently Being ModeratedNov 13, 2012 3:24 PM (in response to Pieter J.)
Belgacom is not a supported carrier. That means that you are welcome to use your iPhone with them, but it may not be fully compatible and Apple makes no statement that it is or will be compatible with them. Some features may not function fully or at all. You must take it up with the carrier.
KiltedTim explained it pretty well in several posts now, and you guys keep on misunderstanding the whole point.
Apple has commercial deals with Mobistar.. Mobistar will be the first operator that will introduce LTE on the iPhone 5 for Belgium, like they are the first to introduce 'visual voicemail' on the iPhone.
I'm a Proximus/Belgacom user myself and yeah it *****, but we have to deal with it. Mobistar is the supported carrier of Apple. Hopefully, after the LTE introduction of Mobistar, it will work out for proximus users aswell.

Nope he didn't explain it well because look at the list with supported carriers: Mobistar is not on the list with supported carriers so Mobistar will not support the iPhone 5 on the LTE network. That's what KiltedTim is saying

Google better next time.
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1937 and push "Europe" obviously
Clearly stated that Mobistar & Telenet are supported carriers, but arent supported for LTE.
I'm feeling sorry for my own country now.. Are you guys trying to look a bit dumb on purpose.. Jeezes

And now look at the visual voicemail support. It's not on the list either for Mobistar. So reffering to lists from Apple of wat supported or not supported just says nothing. Visual voicemail on Mobsitar is supported for the iPhone but not updated on the list. That's why I'm saying throwing lists to proof something doesn't really say anything.

Cool so can we go finally back ontopic? Apple support LTE in Belgium please. You really want Samsung to have the first LTE supported phone in Belgium?

Then could you explain why when I ordered my iPad mini lte on the online apple store in Belgium I had the option to add a FREE proximus nano sim to my order (witch I did)
The same is not true with the iPhone 5 they're not proposing a proximus sim with it.
Now apple if it's true that you're deliberately blocking 4G on my iPhone 5, I will not only cancel my iPad mini order for late November but also resell all my apple stuff (if someone still wants them) except for the IPhone for whitch I reserve a better treatment! An insertion in the ...... (Replace with whatever comes to your mind) of the Apple GENIUS who sold me that phone as a f..... (Again the same here) that will work on the COMPATIBLE 4G network here in Belgium!!!
I have 4G in my area, I have a compatible iPhone. It's now nearly two weeks lost. So apple move your ...
