    Help. Talk me out of it or convince me that I'm thinking clearly.

    I purchased a Z10 back in August 2013. Unlocked on Amazon. I wasn't aware of the different models, ended up receiving a stl100-1...so no LTE connectivity for me. Wasn't a big deal because I had AT&T and they didn't have LTE coverage in my area anyways. I switched from my Z10 to a Nexus 5 for about 2.5 months and I recently changed to T-Mobile as well. Now I have unlimited data and LTE coverage in my area. Nexus 5 was getting about 37mbps on 2-3 bar signal. Fast stuff. Just switched back to my Z10 though because I think it's a way better phone, only remember it's stl100-1. Z10 gets full bars where Nexus only got 2 bars. HSPA+ speeds about 5-6mbps.

    Now I want to purchase a new stl100-3 so I can get those speeeeds. I can get a new unlocked stl100-3 for about $280 bucks seems to be the cheapest.

    TLDR:
    1. Switched back to Z10 from Nexus because I like BB10 better.
    2. Should I settle for slower data speeds?
    3. If I should get a new device, should I just get a Z30? (What model is compatible with T-Mobile US LTE?)
    4. T-Mobile US users, what's your LTE speed like on your Z10/Z30?

    1.Yes, bb10 is a better os
    2. No, be greedy lol
    3. If you're willing to spend more then go ahead, the z30 is worth it (I own one)
    4. I'm with tmo, I get 35+mbps down, 20+mbps up on areas with excellent coverage, and 6-15mbps on average areas

    Sell the z10 stl 1 it's for third world countries (imo)

    I am with TMO USA. I was getting 35 Mb download speeds with my Nexus 4 and only 14 Mb download speeds with my Z10! I did this test repeatedly at the same time and same location. I prefer my Z10 to my Nexus 4 even though the Nexus 4 is faster, the Z10 meets my needs better.
