Hey guys,

 

I am currently a Sprint customer (possibly switching)and was wondering if anyone out here is
using a iPhone 5 on the Verizon Network in Chicago?  If so how is the phone running on the 4 LTE network and
are you having any issues with it?  Also anyone having any Wifi issues with it? 
I want to get the phone, but I am hesitant as I have been following an Apple
thread that is not looking good on this phone...

Thanks guys!!

I live on the near north side of Chicago. I've had the iPhone 5 since September 2012 when it first came out. The voice quality is excellent and I've used it in the city, the Southwest and the Northwest suburbs and in Door County, Wisconsin without any issue. The 4G LTE is super fast. Web pages load quickly. At home I'm connected to WIFI.

My previous smart phone (not an iPhone) had reception issues in my neighborhood, I'm guessing because of the high rise buildings. I have not experienced that at all with the iPhone 5.

I do have issues with voice calls in my condo, but that is more of a problem with the building than anything else. Everyone's reception is spotty inside the building, which is a concrete high rise, so I don't consider that a problem with the iPhone.
