I just finished these steps and now it shows 4G but when I ran a speed test at my house it gave me the same test of 16 mbps over and over again so question is by doing these steps do they really give me 4G. I've got the iphone 5 factory unlocked USA version and it showed 3G on my device and had good speeds for example at my house it hit 16-19 mbps then I did these steps and they do the same speeds.

yep, there is now only "overlay" in my carrier bundles, and there are no longer "cellular data network" settings so cannot enable data on my phone. booo if anyone out there knows how i can use ifunbox or something to re insert the carrier bundle or something that would be great. no restore from 6.1.2 to 6.1.2, would be bummed to lose jailbreak for 6mos on 6.1.3 due to this.

this failed for me. there were no (carrier.pri, overrides_N41_N42.plist, and overrides_N41_N42.pri) to change, but i did change the carrier.plist to add .bak. then the download link for the LTE package release failed. now my phone has lost data service and i am no longer able to see the carrier.plist.bak file to return it..woops a shame, this would have been sweet.

Did anyone test this with Simple Mobile (T-mobile MVNO)? Thanks

so this will enable LTE on the 1900 band? not 1700 band?

That is correct. You'll need to wait for the new iPhone 5 that's being released for 1700MHz support. As AWS LTE only supports 2100MHz and 1900MHz

Works Fine, But disappears Personal Hotspot sharing option. I make test with Iphone 5, IOS 6.1.2 Unlocked Factory from Costa Rica ICE Carrier.

As expected, this carrier bundle also changed my "Cellular Data Network" settings in the "Cellular Data", "MMS" and "Internet Tethering" boxes. I'm assuming that this is the official T-Mobile carrier bundle and those who wait may be able to download the T-mobile bundle when T-Mobile starts selling the iPhone.

Holy sheet man. I think it would be easier to just buy a tmo iPhone than to follow those instructions.
