      Yes the phone remains on 3G because your still able to receive calls and texts through the network. Your just turning off the data usages you may endure through surfing the net or playing with apps. You can shut the whole service down by turning on airplane mode.

        You need to go back and edit the photo, you can pull the corners of the crop back to original size and turn the auto enhance off. It’s a bit of a pain but can be done.

      Getting LTE depends on your location and carrier. The iPhone 5 comes standerd with the LTE capability but if your carrier doesn’t provide it or if your out of range from the towers you will be bumped back down to 3G. I have times when I am out of the city and in more of the country ares where I lose my LTE coverage as well. If you never have LTE no matter where you go then I would suggest you call your carrier and ask why.
