    Default Would you switch carriers to get the OnePlus One?

    OnePlus One isn't available on Sprint and Verizon.

    I am on Verizon now, and at the moment, my legacy plan is by far the cheapest compared to the competition. However, if another carrier can offer equal pricing to my current plan and provide equal total network coverage to Verizon then I would consider switching to get the OnePlus One. I really like the concept of affordable phones and like the big display.

    My answer is kind of invalid as I have already left Sprint. However, similar to your situation, if a carrier could offer similar coverage for a similar price, I would do it.

    A phone really isn't worth switching networks unless you get better coverage. If i had Sprint for personal use (which my work phone is on) , i'd leave in a heartbeat lol

    It will work on TMO lte. It has all the bands. At least according to what I have read.

    I'm currently on Sprint. My contract is up in a month. I'm planning to switch to TMO regardless what device I choose as my next phone.

    It doesn't support bands 2 and 5 lte, which att uses in some areas though limited. TMobile is deploying band 2 lte, so this won't support that .many current tmobile devices support band 2 lte

    Granted where you live and work changes what is the best network. LTE speed wise T-Mobile is the fastest today for the average smartphone but Verizon in some areas with a few new smartphones is faster than T-Mobile. THIS IS TODAY...

    OpenSignals crowdsourced testing ranks T-Mobiles LTE the fastest in the U.S.

    Eventually T-Mo will field a network capable of supporting a theoretical 150 Mbps connection.

    As T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray refarms more 3G spectrum for LTE, he will be able to boost many of its 10 MHz systems to a full 20 MHz, but the real prize comes after it closes its acquisition of MetroPCS (which at this point seems almost a given). Surgically adding Metros AWS spectrum to the current network will give it 40 MHz of LTE in some key markets. Thats twice the capacity of the systems currently run by Verizon and AT&T. THIS IS 2015.

    T-Mobiles new LTE network is fast, but its going to get a lot faster

    No need since I'm already on Att and it will work fine with them. And if I were on tmo I would wait for reviews to see how it performs on their network. But who knows if 1+ can sell enough maybe they can make a revision with band 20 lte along with band 2 and 5

    The problem is tethering one movie can drain through 6gb, and Tmobile's hotspot plan (old or new) will cost a lot more than the Verizon legacy unlimited hotspot plan

    Is there an official list of carriers (post and pre-paid) that the OnePlus One will work on somewhere? Sorry, but I'm not very smart on frequencies. Sounds like AT&T is a go, and T-Mo is up to question. What about prepaid carriers that use AT&T and T-Mo networks (e.g. StraightTalk)? Do they use all the same frequencies or a subset?

    Thanks!

    Any of Tmobile's or att's mvnos should be fine. Only Sprint and Verizon and their mvnos won't work.

    For $349.99 off contract? Nope. I've got 3 lines on AT&T and with my company discount it's around $125/month with 10GB data and unlimited everything else. Not too bad.

    I've been on Sprint for over 15 years now and I have already grown tired of all their promises of awesome speed and network Vision... I have a Nexus 5 but my line is locked into a contract until the end of May... Was already looking to take my Nexus 5 to T-Mobile or AT&T next month anyway... At least to test those networks out vs Sprint... So YES, I'd gladly make the switch with a One.... Even with my older CHEAP legacy Sprint plan their coverage is just horrendous.... Even with a so called "Strong" LTE signal the network just isn't up to snuff.....

    I know that the tmobile Note 3, 5s,5c supports it. I am sure other phones too. I can check specifics if you had a phone in mind. TMobile has said 50% band 2 deployment this year.

    No, I was just trying to get a general idea, thanks. T-Mobile has said it will convert 50% of its 2G coverage, which is on band 2, to LTE this year. That doesn't mean, however, that 50% of T-Mobile's LTE coverage will be on Band 2.
