    I am currently looking at the 5306C variance of this phone. It supports HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100, and LTE 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100.

    Based on the specs, it looks like this phone supports AT&T's 3G HSPA and LTE frequencies. It also supports T-Mobile's LTE network but bizarrely missed the 1700 HSDPA frequency (WTF SONY?), which is used for T-Mobile's 3G service. T-Mobile is in the process to switch their HSPA to 1900 so their LTE can find home on 1700/2100, so in certain markets where TMO has 1900 3G coverage this phone might work as well.

    I live in New York where AT&T has both 3G and LTE, and T-Mobile has 3G on 1900 and LTE coverage. AT&T Gophone goes $60 for 2GB and T-MO goes $60 for 2.5GB and $70 for unlimited. Last time I checked Newegg it is going at $359 unlocked, guys, is this... a good deal?

    UPDATE: It seems AT&T deploys its LTE mostly on the 700 frequency, which is not supported by this phone. Oh well..

    In my opinion, if you're going the unlocked GSM route - get a Nexus 4 from the Play Store. You'll only get HSPA+, no LTE, but it's fast where available.
