T-Mobile Releases Carrier Update for Unlocked iPhone 5, Enables LTE and Visual Voicemail

We reported earlier this week that T-Mobile was set to push out a carrier update to all the unlocked GSM iPhone 5 devices on their network. They’ve pulled the trigger today, and the update will enable quite a few features, not the least of which is LTE support.



The document notes that the update brings support for Visual Voicemail, the “4G” network indicator on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network, Personal Hotspot settings, MMS settings, HD Voice, LTE, and more.

The update also includes battery life enhancements due to the improved network optimization.

Pre-Orders for the official T-Mobile iPhone 5 began this morning. The official release date for the phone on the magenta network is April 12th.

Update: For those who aren’t receiving the update via carrier push to your device, 9to5Mac also notes that you can install the profile through Mobile Safari:

You can also install this profile by visiting tmobile.com/isetup directly on your iPhone […].

    Did anyone try tmobile.com/isetup from your iphone 5?

    1. Steve Boling says:

      Yes. It doens’t install the Carrier update. It only configures your APN settings and installs 2 shortcuts on your homescreen for mobileLife and my.Tmobile.

    Some of my friends who have an unlocked iPhone 5 got the update but still have to make do with the 2G network until T-Mobile updates the network in Denver. I bought the most recent iPhone and after getting an idea of how fast the LTE network is, I am that much more excited about it. Last weekend, I took a small vacation from work at DISH and got to try out the new network in Las Vegas. During the trip, I was able to keep up with my shows using the DISH Anywhere app and because of LTE, streaming quality was fantastic.
