    APPARENTLY the UK gets both. But maybe it is the same deal like we have seen with the S3 where the LTE model is only being sold by EE. Other option is import - even Amazon sold LTE unlocked phones but they were imports.

    "Three"'s website mentions that they are getting the "Ultrafast" model so who knows - we'll find out in four weeks :)

    By the time the coverage is sorted the S5 is probably being released :)

    I hardly get any coverage in my area (Cambridgeshire) - even broadband is around 3Mbits when I am lucky ...

    I presume that it takes a micro SIM, like the S3. If you have a full size SIM, you will have to exchange it through your carrier.
