The iPhone 5 (AAPL) doesn't support the 4G LTE spectrum bands Vodafone (VOD) and O2 (TEF) plan to use in the U.K. Fortunately for the carriers, the U.K.'s 4G spectrum auction won't start until 2013, which means they may only have to wait a few months from the time their 4G buildouts start before the next iPhone arrives. Unfortunately for them, rival Everything Everywhere (FTE, DTEGY.PK) is already launching 4G in an existing band that the iPhone 5 does support. (previous)
