Apple just introduced the latest iPhone 5, a bigger 4-inch display, A6 chip processor, better camera and gets better wireless connectivity including LTE support. Phil Schiller during the iPhone 5 media event has provided a list of carriers that will support the new LTE capability of the iPhone 5.
So, here is the list of LTE-compatible carriers for iPhone 5:
Republic Wireless, the wireless service which made headlines for its cut-rate $19 unlimited voice, unlimited text message, and unlimited data plan that relied more on Wi-Fi networks than cellular ones, reopens its beta to a new wave of customers, and has added the Motorola Defy XT to its lineup. If you rarely stray from Wi-Fi network areas and you’re sick of high cell phone bills, you may find this new $19-a-month wireless service a very attractive proposition, believe me!
Republic’s hybrid system connects phones to a Wi-Fi network by default, but if it can’t find a Wi-Fi network, then it will connect to a cellular network. Republic Wireless, which buys and resells space on Sprint Nextel’s network, flies in the face of the increasing restrictions and limitations on data use placed by the bigger carriers, who argue that they are facing a looming capacity crunch. Sprint, however, has maintained its unlimited offering, but at a much higher rate than what Republic is selling its service at.
That means you can have unlimited voice, data, and text messaging while your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network and limited use when connected to its partner Sprint’s cellular network. Basic cellular limits are 550 voice minutes, 150 text messages and 300 megabytes (mb) of data. Those limits can be increased, though, based on your Wi-Fi usage. In other words, the more you use Wi-Fi, the larger your limits will be.
When the service first launched in beta last year, Republic had a fair use policy that laid out guidelines for acceptable use. Customers could use 1,200 minutes, 3,600 texts, or 600MB of data on the cell network each month, though this amount could vary based on the proportion of active users offloaded to WiFi ( the rule of thumb was that at least 60 percent usage should be offloaded). The system also used a moving average to track use, so a month heavy on cellular use could be offset by a month followed by lots of WiFi use.
Some jaded mobile market watchers may see Republic’s emphasis on community as marketing hype being used to mask a highly restrictive wireless service. For heavy users of cellular networks, that might be the case. But Republic never tries to hide what it’s offering and for whom. For many consumers, who want to be part of the smartphone generation, but can’t afford the crushing costs of a data plan, Republic is an outstanding alternative.
How does Republic get away with charging so little? Well, the company has developed a technology called Hybrid Calling that relies heavily on Wi-Fi for primary voice service, with cellular spectrum used as backup.
Republic’s use of Sprint, the third-best network, as its supplementary cell service can sometimes be disappointing, though the reliability and availability will vary depending upon where you live and where you go.
The celebrate the relaunch of its beta program, Republic Wireless is also offering its users the Motorola DEFY XT smartphone that costs $249 and features Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3.7-inch display, a 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. While the price tag may seem high for a comparatively low-end Android phone, keep in mind that it doesn’t require a two-year contract and money saved with the $19 monthly use charges will more than make up for the initial device investment.
Before buying an iPhone, you may need to know about carrier where your iPhone will be used on. Hence selecting iPhone’s wireless carrier is important, be sure to shop around to get the best plan for your needs and budget. Study all offers carefully. Before you sign-up, be sure you understand what you’re buying and what’s in the contract. Ask questions about anything that is not clear to you. You can also look up the company’s website for more information.
10 Tips for Selecting iPhone’s Carrier
When and Where
Ask yourself where you will be using your phone. At home? At work? While traveling? Also ask when you will use it. During the day? Nights? Weekends?
Your Coverage Area
No wireless company serves all parts of the state. So, look for one that serves where you want to use your phone the most. You can find maps of their coverage areas at their stores, websites, or ask the sales person about the specific places where you can use the phone.
Choose the Right Calling Plan for You
Most companies offer several different calling plans such as local, regional, or nationwide. Some plans include one set you can use any time or only at peak times. The other set is for nights, weekends, or off-peak times.
Study each plan carefully. Bring your cell phone bill, if you already have one, and compare prices.
Your Trial Period
Most companies have a trial period for testing the service and the coverage area. This is the only time that you
can cancel your contract without paying an Early Termination Fee. Give your phone and all its features a good
Alternatives to a Long-Term Contract
If a contract is not for you, look for a month-tomonth, flat rate plan, “pay as you go” or “prepaid” plans. If you choose a prepaid plan, find out when the minutes will expire. Find out if it covers long distance or international calls. Find out how to buy more minutes and if you must buy them before you run out of minutes.
Know about Roaming
Roaming is making a call by using another wireless company’s service. It may happen when you are outside your company’s coverage area or if your company cannot handle any more calls inside its area.
1. If there are roaming charges.
2. How you will know when you are roaming.
3. If all your services are available while roaming.
Long Distance Long distance fees may be charged when you call outside your local area. Find out how you will be billed for long-distance calls.
Features Other than Voice Service
Other services may include Internet browsing, and text messaging. Find out how you will be billed and how to block or
cancel them if you want. Other features include “mobile to mobile,” meaning calls made from one cell-phone to another.
Keeping Your Phone Number
If you switch phone companies, you can keep your phone number. If you are still under contract with your current carrier, you may have to pay an Early Termination Fee for canceling service early. You may need to purchase a new cell phone because many cell phones can be used only on a specific carrier’s network.
Understanding Your Charges
Ask to see a sample bill with an estimate of what you will be paying each month. Here are examples of things you
• Activation Fees to start service.
• Taxes and surcharges.
• Charges: for long distance, roaming and airtime.
• Text messaging and other charges, including how you will be charged if you share minutes with someone else.
• Dropped Calls: Will you receive a credit for calls that are cut off due to poor coverage areas?
• Early Termination Fees: What are the charges for ending service before your contract expires?
If you have more than one phone in your plan, will the charge apply to every phone?
