    I want to buy Blackberry Z30 in US but I'm using T-mobile, so if I buy the blackberry Z30, can it get 4G from T-mobile (I mean H+, 4G not LTE because I know it cannot get LTE from Verizon) or what is high speed data that blackberry Z30 from Verizon can get from T-mobile. Thanks!

    Actually, you can definitely get T-Mobile LTE on a Verizon Z30. The question is whether or not you will get HSPA+. And the answer is: it depends. If you're in one of those refarmed (1900 MHz) markets, then yes you will get HSPA+. If you're still in the 1700 MHz HSPA+ market, then you won't get it.

    Thanks @raino so if I'm in the 1900 MHz market, I will get 4G and If I'm in the 1700 MHzI just can get EDGE speed or 3G speed?

    If you're in a strictly 1700 MHz HSPA market, you'll get EDGE speeds only. However, if some of that spectrum has been redeployed as LTE, you may see LTE too.

    I just figured out that the STA-5 cover 1700 and 1900 MHz area whil the STA-3 cover only 1900MHz area. So the STA-3 from Verizon may get 4G (or sometimes LTE) in 1900 MHz area. Out of that area it will take EDGE. I'm using T-mobile, so the speed depends on the area. Why do other carriers in US do not carry Blackberry Z30 =.=! I'm waiting from T-mobile but they do not take it. Hopefully in next days they will annouce for bringing Z30 on Thanksgiving or any time till the end of this year (Christmas?)

    Yeah, I'm also looking for STA 100-5 on Ebay but not too much at there because it seems like only Telus from Canada have it model, other carriers use model STA 100-2 which for Europe and Canada (Roger, Bell...) The model STA 100-5 is suitable for almost carriers in US.

    The STA100-5 is fully compatible with T-Mobile, but it's not as easily available as the STA100-3 might be (go into a Verizon store, see if they place orders for non-service customers and if so, buy it.) There are some unlocked sellers selling it (-5,) GSM Nation being one. And of course, all Canadian carriers are using this model.
