T-Mobile still doesn't have 3G in my area despite the fact that Verizon already has 4G LTE here, and Sprint will soon. Their $30 a month, no contract, 100 minute, unlimited data and texting plan is an amazing deal, but I wouldn't even consider switching to T-Mobile until they can at least pull off 3G here.

[citation][nom]Marco925[/nom]Isn't Tmobile on the 1700Mhz band?[/citation]
Yes, they are on the 1700MHz band but also on the 1900MHz band.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-Mobile_USA
They have HSPA on 1700MHz and 1900MHz and LTE on 1700MHz only. However, the article doesn't mention anything about LTE or HSPA but since it does mention it will be on the 1900MHz that would mean HSPA service. And their LTE service doesn't even begin until next year anyway.

Yup, take her too long to get across all those huge gaps in coverage on a motorcycle.

Keep away from T-mobile. We've been customers for 9 years, and made a stupid mistake in trusting their lies about Iphone. Our contract is about to expire, and yes - lets get Iphones - finally a decent device.
So, instead of waving them good-bye and going with ATT, We've just got into the trap: loud WEb announcements of 4G by T-mobile + the rep at the store said: sure, go get an unlocked Iphone, it will work just fine.
We live in Dedham, MA. Getting only Edge, and of weak strength. The same in all surrounding towns: Westwood, Norwood, Canton. No way to check your E-mail on the road.
Next day after the agreement signed we spent 2 hrs on the phone with Customer Care. Totally wasted time - except that they got paid for this mocking discussion. "We have 1 million Iphones in many cities, such as Baltimore, Memphis, you name it"
"In 3-4 months we'll have your service improved". But how can we trust them if our town is already on the list ready for 4G, and it is complete lies?
Customer, beware - never trust a corporation.
A customer care women connected us to their laywer - to give us options, as she explained. Complete mockery: Oh, valuable customer, oh we could help you to return Iphones to the Apple store.
We are so mad, almost ready to pay $600 fine to forget about these sharks.
But what can we do - in the end they always win.
We can only warn other people: keep away from T-mobile!
