    So I'm about a full day in with T-Mobile's plan. Comparing to my Sprint's coverage so far and T-Mobile definitely is winning hands down in the areas I'm usually at. I'm getting between 3mb - 12mb on T-Mobile vs .2mb - 1mb on Sprint. The one draw back is the Sprint connection is a hair better at my work desk. It must have slightly better building penetration because I can step outside and the T-Mobile connection is better. Still planning on trying AT&T.

    I think I'm about 6 months out from seeing any real LTE activity in my part of Southern California via Sprint. No desire to go to Verizon as I'm trying to save money.

    I noticed my phone would go between HSPA and HSPA+ by going to settings, about, status. How do you know if it is +21 or +42?

    Yes. There are some who believe that TMob gives priority to it's own customers' signals, or somehow slows down the MVNO's somewhat, but that's entirely speculation, there's been no proof of it.

    I'm on the Tmobile bandwagon as well. I have ATT and the nexus sucked on their network in the Tampa Bay area. Even though LTE is fast, voice is lacking. Decided to try tmobile with the nexus 4 and it is on par with my ATT G Note 2 in speed. The bonus is that I now can talk on the phone in the house and Tmobile is $100 cheaper for the same family plan. Looks like I'm switching to T-MO.

    Nice, you're from Medford. I grew up in Central Point. Hopefully you'll get the full HSPA+ 42 speed.

    Ok, again, since I already posted this once;
    If you should see this Jerry Hildenbrand, number 161 on the list is properly spelled "Worcester" as in worcester-shire sauce. Not "Worchester". I know, it's nit-picking, but it just gets me that everywhere else in the country I go no one gets it right.

    Wouldn't be a problem if you lived in a first rate city rather than the armpit of Massachusetts.

    IPhone 4s doesn't have LTE. That's why the battery is good. If it did, it would blow. The iPhone 5 has LTE but the battery has been designed for it.

    I wish I'd switched to T-Mobile 7 years ago when my dad made me start paying for my phone! I don't know why I waited so long. My verizon contract is still running but that's because i still have grandfathered unlimited data and my verizon galaxy nexus just acts as wifi hotspot now instead of having to pay for internet service! My T-Mobile plan is the 30 dollar 5GB unlimited messaging 100 minutes plan and i love it. I live in seattle and average 15-20/5. On my galaxy nexus i get 5/5 if i'm lucky even though i have a full LTE signal at home and at work. Their network is just really bogged down now that people have made the switch to 4G.

    Eratic signal with t-mobile. At first I always had 3-4 bars signal and today it is jumping around from none to 4 bars and sometimes can't
    even make a call. Anyone else experiencing this.

    I'm in Ontario and Brea a lot. How has your coverage been with T-Mo in those areas?

    I can confirm 100% that T-Mobile does not work in Omaha, NE.

    There are small pockets where it MIGHT work, but largely, it does not work at all. We do not have T-Mobile stores, Straight Talk will not sell T-Mobile SIM cards to Omaha, NE, T-Mobile does not have resellers here, there's maybe three towers in the whole city which barely work.

    Your best bet, if you live in Omaha, NE and want the Nexus 4, is AT&T or one of their MVNOs.

    Do not believe anything T-Mobile's website says.

    Edit:
    The only place close to here that would have T-Mobile service would probably be Des Moines, IA currently.

    Vinton, IA has 2G T-Mobile service. They used to have 3G but lost all T-Mobile towers back during a tornado/windstorm in 2010. Currently, they're supposed to get a new tower, but right now it's broken.

    When I was shopping around before I landed on Sprint in 2011, T-Mobile's representatives even stated that they do not have service here. i-Wireless (which uses T-Mobile) works in Omaha but only barely and that's simply because they can roam.
