I can confirm the work around works! Also see the LTE Switch now!

Please do your search on twitter. I won't mail everyone the workaround. I have a life

I followed the work around and I'm glad LTE is finally working on my iPhone, but it is a disgrace.
Shame on you Apple.

Does iMessage/FaceTime still work with the patched ipcc file?

On a Windows PC it's easy too. However, be warned that you will lose MMS capabilities by using this carrier bundle, which was made for the iPad, on your iPhone 5!

What is really disgraceful, is the fact that Proximus is now on the list of supported LTE carriers for the iPad, but not for the iPhone. This is strong evidence that Apple is playing a malicious game together with their Belgian iPhone partner Mobistar, to get customers switching from Proximus to Mobistar as soon as Mobistar launches its LTE network (however, I think most people won't be stupid enough to switch to the rubbish network of Mobistar anyway). What about fair competition (antitrust), Apple?

Don't the people at Apple realize such things are going to blow up in their faces rather sooner than later?
Anyway, I got LTE on my iPhone working, and I'll be happy to tell fellow iProximussers that the best LTE network in Belgium is now iPhone-compatible for the small price of giving up your MMS (who still uses that thing?)
Middle finger to Mobistar and Apple. Cheers!

People without smartphones still use MMS. You might still be able to receive their MMSes without the APN settings (can anyone confirm this?), but you'll certainly not be able to send MMSes to them anymore.
For that, we'll have to wait for something that I'm not allowed to discuss here, but which should be released very soon

so Apple; you can censurate this as much as you want;
what you apperently forget is that Early adaptors are complaining; Check your marketing lessons; Those EA's are angels spreading the word!
Now simply thinking what is a couple of hundred complaints .. is acting arrogant!
Worse is that our favorit brand is now heading a direction that we do not like; controlling us like caddle!!

I do agree, and I must say I feel ashamed now that I have been such a loyal Apple-buyer over the last couple of years. It's like a loyal friend you've known for all of these years who stabs you in the back.
I have stopped using iMessage/Facetime/iCloud already a few months ago so that the transition to my next phone will be more fluent.
Yes Apple, I'm not willing to take the risk again. Who knows what you still have in mind to betray us when launching your "unlocked" iPhone 6, 7 and so on.
From now on I'll play it safe and only buy completely unlocked smartphones, although I also bought the unlocked version of this iPhone5. Silly me.

Voor de Nederlandstaligen hier (en ook omdat de kans dan kleiner is dat het verwijderd zal worden): instructies om LTE te activeren voor Proximus, in begrijpbare taal, voor Windows en Mac OS X:

What's a little strange is that Apple has now unlocked LTE on both iPad3 en iPad Mini on the Proximus/Belgacom network. However, iPhone5 users remain without access and that's a shame.Does anyone have any idea when the iPhone5 will be unlocked?

It is possible to activate LTE in Polish network - Polkomtel aka Plus. LTE is only avaiable in this operator.
