    Yea

    My buddy has a Iphone, and on Tmobile. It showed him something about 5G on his phone. And he was telling me How good it worked.

    I said Iphone has decided that you don't need a 5G service in your phone.
    And you don't have a 5G sims in your phone.
    So how can you get 5G service.
    I'm not sure what you are talking about here, "showed him something about 5G"? With that description, it sounds just as likely that he got a text message from T-Mobile that his plan supports 5G (with 5G phone). The only case I've ever seen an iPhone saying something like "5g" was AT&T's "5Ge" -- which the iPhone did show; it was AT&Ts fast 4G (and shortly before 5g was actually being deployed) to make their customers think AT&T must be really great.

    Of course, Apple didn't so much decide you don't need 5G as their "war" with Qualcomm kept them from getting 5G modems. Then again, as this thread shows, most of us don't really gain a lot from having 5G -- either it is too limited or, in T-Mobile's case, typically isn't really faster than LTE.

    You guys are getting good speeds on AT&T? I picked up the S20, and my video buffers, and I actually dropped a few calls in places where I never have a problem. It shows full bars and 5 G, and I'm only getting around 10-15 for speed. I pop the sim and put it in my old phone on 4G, and get 50 to 60. I put a call into AT&T, and got the old, you'll hear back from us within 24 hrs and my supervisor will also give you a call tomorrow. I haven't heard back in 3 days, so needless to say, I'm returning the S20 and going back to my S9.

    This says it's 4G (LTE) but it must have been a 5G test from my carrier (who haven't officially launched their 5G network yet)

    Quite a bit Verizon has been blanketing DC and NOVA at a pretty high rate.

    I found a thread on the Note 20 forum stating that if you have use T-Mobile and have an older SIM card that you need a new SIM card for 5G phones. The New SIM cards are pink and if the number printed on the card starts "R15" it is the 5G card, if it starts with "TM" it is an older card and should be replaced.

    If you have a T-Mobile version of the phone, you should have received the new SIM card with the phone. If you were like me, and got an unlocked phone, you likely need to order a new SIM card. Apparently while the old SIMs will support 5G data, they can only use LTE for voice calls, they won't support standalone 5G.

    Just a word of caution to those not on an unlimited plan, these tests can use a ton of data. This one for instance used almost .5 GB
    Wow! That's a LOT of data! Holy criminey! Pretty cool test, though!

    I'm in Louisville Kentucky wonder if Verizon 5G is here yet I think I saw a map and the low band may be in some areas. Can't wait to get the S21. So with Verizon will you need a new sim?

    I picked up 1 of the new VZN 5G sims the other day, seems to work about the same as the old sim did even when I was in a known 5G area of Memphis

    I think it's been stated that a new SIM isnt't necessary to receive 5G on Verizon. There was the firmware patch to activate the lowband "nationwide" 5G in October, of ourse. Are they actually marketing newer SIMs as "5G?"
