    This maybe has been covered, but ... if you look on the back of your 7, you will find a serial number. If it reads A 1660, then, congratulations, your data comes to you courtesy a Qualcomm modem, which has outperformed the Intel version by 30% in a poor-reception test.

    Perhaps this should go in the useless information section ...

    Not according to Apple - for the location of the serial number on the 7. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204073

    Can also click your way to:
    Settings/general/about/legal/regulatory and it will show the model number.

    But if you have a case, cover, etc.. that doesn't have a clear back.. it's nice to have a few ways to check without having to remove the case. ;-)

    All AT&T models have the crappy and slower Intel modem. Aren't I lucky? :mad:

    Probably uses less power, so it's a battery saver :LOL:

    I must be. We're on an AT&T family plan. But my 7 came as a replacement from the Apple Store and I switched the SIM myself.

    Sidenote: will AT&T eventually catch up that I'm not using the 6 Plus I bought from them? I've had 4 iPhones since Sep 2014 and they only know about two of them, I suspect.
