I got my wife a nano SIM Card from Koodo for her unlocked iPhone 5. However, she never get the LTE signal on her phone. Below are more information regarding the phone: - Phone was purchased unlocked from Apple Canada. - My home has LTE coverage. I tried replacing her SIM Card with another friend Koodo Prepaid SIM Card (Purchased around 1 year after Nano SIM Card first available) and the phone got LTE signal. - LTE is enabled and I did try the network reset and all other test mentioned in this forum. - Nano SIM Card was purchased when iPhone 5 first came out (first time Nano SIM Card was available). My question is whether there is a known issue with the first batch of the Nano SIM Card where it is not able to connect to LTE network? Thank you.

I went through the exact same process (bought an iphone 5 unlocked from Apple on launch day), my day 1 nano sim has had no problem with LTE. Sounds like it could be an issue with your sim, especially if LTE is working with a different sim.
Any idea what are my options then, if that is the case?

Any idea what are my options then, if that is the case? You probably need another SIM card, $20 for prepaid, including $20 service credit. I personally wouldn't bother with it as I still fail to see any noticeable benefit when using LTE and it really affects battery life.
