    I'm on T-Mobile (postpaid) contract. i'm on the value plan. I did this for the unlimited data. I use alot and i don't want to be checking how much data i use. anyways for me its cheap $69 a month for everything. However, i did get a little mad when T-Mobile annouced their new $70 prepaid unlimitied data plan a few weeks ago but oh well. I don't plan on leaving T-Mobile anytime soon.

    Edit: I got my N4 from the play store on launch day(one of the lucky few) however i only was able to get the 8GB. This past weekend i brought the 16GB from T-Mobile in Corona. I just sold off my old N4 so basically i paid $150 for my new N4 16 GB not bad

    Probably. I did that last year after Hurricane Isaac. We got a foot of water in our house and our insurance company was taking too long to give us our money, so my dad had to pay money out of his own pocket to get the repairs started. He cancelled our Internet and cable for two months to save money. I have unlimited data on Verizon and my entire family was leeching off my data. Since we didn't have cable either, several of us were constantly streaming Netflix. I was really thankful for unlimited data. We used just over 150GB one month. I could never use 200GB in a month on my own unless I was trying to.

    A few months ago I went into a T-Mobile store here in the St. Louis area to see what sort of data speeds their network has. The couple of tests I ran pulled in an average of 24mbps. Seeing as AT&T in my area pulls at best 30mbps for many more $, I can live with the T-Mobile connection.

    Now for that darn phone to show up, hopefully Monday or Tuesday.

    Now we just those speeds consistently from more towers. In my neck of the woods speeds vary widely depending in tower and time of day.

    Just got my Nexus 4 today, and once it was set up and activated (T-Mobile pre-paid, $30 plan), I did a Speedtest. This is in the eastern edge of the San Francisco Bay Area, indoors sitting at my computer. It's better than my 12 MB Uverse home service! T-Mo has HSPA+ 42 rolled out almost everywhere in the Bay Area.

    I have also noticed this. The past three or so weeks have been almost unbearable. I have a lot of friends that have also been wondering what's going on with T-Mobile's data in our area. We're in the San Fernando valley which is Los Angeles county.

    I really hope this is temporary but it seems like we might soon see those AT&T iPhone overload issues.

    So after having my Nexus 4 for two months and not having service because I had to wait for Sprint. I have finally activated my N4!! And the results are astonishing.

    I'm on the $30 100 min, Unl text/web plan.

    In the past I was paying $80 for crappy Sprint service (And that's with a 24% EMP Discount!)

    Here are my results in North Miami, FL.

    This is Sprint

    The top two results are 4G, this is what I pay an extra $10/month for..
    1.7Mbps Down .134 Mbps Up (Average from the 2 results)

    And my 3G results
    .651 Mbps Down .870 Mbps Up

    Then we move on to the T-Mobile results...


    No contest.

    T-Mobile 14.00 Mbps Down 1.714 Up (Avg From 3 Results)

    These tests between the 2 phones/carriers were all taken on the same server within 15 min of each other.

    I haven't experienced the service much yet, but so far. This is the best financial decision I've made this year.

    I too just switched from Sprint to T-mo prepaid and it has been the best decision in a long time. I am slowly weaning my 5 member family plan off of Sprint and onto T-mo.

    In Sprint's defense, the 4G here in Chicago was beating my T-mo download speeds consistently.

    That can't be your lte and if it is your probably getting it from a far away tower. This is my daily lte

    I don't get it...

    How come some of us have H while others have 3g or 4g?

    I bought mine unlocked from the play store and have tried the following sims:

    Straight Talk /att
    Real Att
    Prepaid Tmo

    Mine only shows H or E no matter what sim.
    What determines if yours shows H, 3g or 4g?

    Mine has always just shown H or E with both ATT & TMO, with one exception.... There's about a mile run of road I encountered where it woudisplay 3G when I was under TMO.

    I got this result yesterday. The weird part is that my city is not a 42 city, and the readout under the system status menu is showing it as being 21. Can't complain, since the download was twice as fast as my Verizon DNA sitting right next to it.

    Just to clarify: even though the server shows chicago, I'm in a suburb.

    Your ping is very poor, did you turn on data roaming (see the other thread in this forum for why) and reset your APN? That should fix the ping issue.
