I live in Las Vegas, and Tmobiles coverage is crap where I live, which is by the strip. Thanx, but no thanx I'm sticking with AT&T 4G LTE.

T-Mobile is so desperate these days. First they beg to be part of AT&T and now they are desperate to get the iPhone. Heck they don't even have an Lte network.

So? They have HSPA+ which have potential speeds far greater than LTE.

Then why did Sprint switch from WiMax to Lte, why did AT&T start building an Lte network to compete with Verizon even though they already have a strong HSPA+ network and why did Verizon just skip HSPA+ all together and go straight to Lte? Face it Lte is the superior to every other network technology and without Lte T-Mobile isn't even in the same league as the other big carriers. Heck the iPhone you love so much has Lte now, are you saying Apple shouldn't have made the new iPhone an Lte device?

I have a friend who has a iPhone 4 that was unlocked by at&t, (he finished his contract) I was thinking of buying it from him and taking advantage of Tmo's unlimited talk text and data for $70... To use it as a media player, but I Dunno considering I'll be stuck at 2g here in L.A. I have a 4s now, but I'd have to have it unlocked by "unconventional" means to work with Tmo
