Re: It's a SCAM!

T-Mobile "4G" phones can't get 3G and there's no "4G" available hardly anywhere so my phone only gets Edge now they are coming out with LTE that I won't be able to get either? I hope someone starts a class action suit because of this scam. This has got to be one of the biggest consumer fraud cases of 2012!

Both tmo's 4g and 3g are on the same band, so without proof to back up your claim, I call BS.

Meanwhile, my galaxy s2 is just fine in the same conditions. Please don't use anecdotes as "proof" or "fraud".

I'm not using that example as proof of fraud because none of it is fraud. Tmobile and everyone else says "Coverage and speeds not available everywhere." But for everyone to say that this person does not have this issue because they dont and 1 of the only 2 people I know that has t-mo has this same issue it is safe to say that the OP has a plausible story.

Plausible, sure. Lots of things are plausible. Based upon his description though, he should be mad at himself for not checking the coverage map more closely, or he has a faulty phone.

Exactly. Their coverage sucks, it's pretty well known.

It's all well and fine he might not have coverage in a certain area, but his claim that tmo's 4G phones don't work on tmo's 3G network, which operate on the same technology and frequency, is just plain wrong.
