O2 Customers will have to wait for 4G
While it is all exciting news on the availability of the phone, the phone will only run O2’s 3G network when it is first available. According to reports, it needs a software update from Apple to allow it to use O2’s LTE bandwidth. While this is a put off, O2 customers will probably still be lining up to get their hands on the kit. Will you be one of them?
