What to do if you do not see a 4G signal

If you don't see the enable/disable LTE option in your iPhone 5 settings, you won't be able to receive a 4G signal.

1. Make sure your iPhone 5 has an internet connection
2. Tap Settings then General and then About. If an update is available, a prompt will appear as below:

3. Tap OK to install the update.
4. Hold the Sleep/Wake button down until you see Slide to power off
5. Slide to power off
6. After the device powers off, hold the Sleep/Wake button to turn your phone back on
