I'm about to buy an iPhone5 from an official retailer. I just read somewhere about different types of LTE... I just wonder if an iPhone5 bought in Singapore will work in Spain, Thanks!!

    Spain is not listed, so more than likely LTE access won't work there but 3G and EDGE access should.

    Not sure what LTE is... The question is, will the phone work as well as if would have bought it in Spain?

    With LTE on iPhone 5, you can browse the web, stream content, or download amovie at blazing-fast speeds. To see if iPhone 5 works with LTE networks in your country, refer to the chart below.1 For more details, contact your carrier.

    GSM model: UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

    LTE is 4G the next faster generation of cellular speed (after 3G ,the current )

    The iPhone 5 purchasedi n Singapore will NOT have warranty in Spain ,the  warranty is not international  and available only  in Country of purchase .

    In the event of any issues you would have to return the iPhone to Singapore for any service ,warranty or post warranty .
