We jumped the gun last week and announced that the carrier update was out. It is now officially out. Just plug your iPhone into your computer and launch iTunes and you will see the message to update. You can also do it directly from your iPhone by going to Settings –> General –> About.
It will say: Carrier Settings Update New settings are available. Would you like to update them now.
Once you are finished installing the update you will see that your carrier is now T-Mobile 14.1. This update will enable LTE on the AT&T iPhone 5. Not the Verizon iPhone 5. It will change your 3G icon to 4G and will enable HD Voice as well as visual voicemail. It will also put all of the correct settings for MMS.
AFTER THIS UPDATE YOU WILL NO LONGER HAVE FREE PERSONAL HOTSPOT. To enable Personal Hotspot on this account, contact T-Mobile.
