I found the corresponding file that enables/disables LTE but i don't know how to activate it, it's found in the iphone carrier bundles

Can you be a bit more specific. What file where and how exactly?
If you mean an ipcc file, that's useless.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 16, 2012 7:55 AM (in response to Pieter J.)
It's in the carrier bundle ipcc, you should modify and update it but i'm not a developer, so don't know which values to edit

It's not possible, the ipcc needs to be signed by Apple before your iPhone can install it.

You can enable carrier testing in itunea and test it yourself ;) no signing needed by apple then

At work. Maybe somebody can test it.

That's a way to manually load carrier bundles into iTunes. The IPCC file itself still needs to be signed by Apple before it will work.

It does take longer to get the 3G switch become available. It's just like it's searching: what do I need to show: 3g or 4G

Patrickfromhasselt's message with the modified ipcc-file has already been removed. Looks like Apple is closely monitoring this topic to make sure we don't succeed in enabling the LTE-switch ourselves
I wouldn't recommend to use this ipcc-file however, as it is made for iPad and it disables mms and internet tethering, and it's very difficult to remove the carrier bundle again.

I noticed as well.
Instead of monitoring us, they'd better hurry up and release us an update.
I installed the IPCC file from Patricfromhasselt but it didn't work. Did a whole restore to get it back to normal :-)
But thanks for trying Patrick.
Maybe we should continue our attempts on another blog where Apple can not spy on us ;-)

The file from Patrick did not work out for me.
You do not have to restore to remove it.
Just reset your network settings.

Oh well too late now. Thanks. I'll do that next time then.

Who says it's the best phone on the market? You?
The best selling phone is the SGS3. There are are phones having more functionality, better hardware, less problems etc. As I said, the iPhone is a nice phone, just not a great phone. Too limited and too restrictive, especially for the money. And for those people who say "Apple stuff just works", I would refer them to this discussions area where there is a long list of people complaining about stuff that doesn't work.

Nope reviewers are saying the same thing. The iPhone 5 is the king of smartphones whilst the S3 was called the best of Android phones when it came out. Saying that the S3 is the best selling phone is stupid when you are talking about the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 was about to be launched when S3 outsold the iPhone so people were buying less iPhones in anticipation of the iPhone5. Using those numbers shows you are not so well informed about tech news. I have Android as part of the LTE testing from Mobistar at home and it really surprised me too see that it was more restrictive than iOS. Can't update the stupid thing, can't install most of the new apps. it even took me more than a day to set up basic features. I've given up on that Samsung crap product because even Fandroids™ couldn't help me out with it. So don't come and tell here that the iPhone is too restrictive or limited because I know first hand that this is not the case.
Yes one thing is not working and we are complaining about it but we can also put the blame on Belgacom if you want. Belgacom said in 2011 they could enable 4G with the flick of a switch. Well they turned on that switch much too late. The iPhone 5 was already out when they turned the switch that's why we have too wait till Apple acknowledges their network is good enough for the iPhone. Because that's what it all boils down to. Apple wants to guarantee quality. Something you don't have to expect from Google or Android manufacturers. Look at Apple maps. I have no problem with it but a lot of people seem to have problems with it so the big boss sends out an appology for that feature not being up to Apple standards. If I look at the samsung crap device I got I wonder why there was no appology for the entire device.

Nick-1989, I want to ask you something but I can't send private messages on this board. Can you send me an email? thanks
