Re: How can I check if my SIM card is 5G ready?

be interested if there is a way to do this as I just join on a sim only deal (I have an iPhone 12 Pro max) but cant get 5G even though I've been in an area with high coverage. Does it take a few days to be enabled?

Virgin's 5g has not started yet for the iPhone 12, expect they are working with Apple for it to be enabled in the next carrier update?.

Re: How can I check if my SIM card is 5G ready?

just in case anyone is interested, my settings updated tonight and now I can pickup 5G. Not a great signal strength in my house which is expected as the coverage at my post code isn’t great.

Will check it tomorow when I’m in a high coverage are of Glasgow.
