    iPhone 4S capable of 4G?

    tammyaaron

      Being a new iPhone user, I don't understand why my iPhone 4S only says 3G rather than 4G?  Or if it is even capable of 4G LTE?  I was told it and the iPhone 5 both are.  Is it something that needs to be changed in my phone?  I am in a 4G coverage area.  Thank you for any help!

          The Verizon Wireless iPhone 4S is only a 3G smartphone that is global ready. It doesn't have the radio hardware to access the 4G LTE network.

           

          If you had the the AT&T version of the iPhone 4S, you could access their HSPA+ network which is 3.5G or as some call it "4G with enhanced backhaul" (ie fake "4G").
