    It appears that there's 4G LTE in my area (Birmingham, AL) with T-Mobile now. Saw it this morning...

    My experience has been a pretty good one. Got it the first day it was available with TMO and haven't had any real issues to complain about. I've had 3 other BlackBerry devices but it's my first full touch screen. My kid uses my Torch 9810 now.

    4g LTE is crazy fast. I did a speed test with Telus in Canada and got 60mpbs download. That's 12x faster than my wired dsl connection!

    That's why I had to switch away from T-Mobile because I got 4G everywhere but my house. Thank the technology gods for wifi. Haha :P

    I feel the need to correct what I posted the other day. The 4G LTE signal I'm picking up is actually from AT&T in the area where I work (Tuscaloosa, AL). Saw the details yesterday in the article linked below. I don't understand the whole carrier spectrum thing but I'm with T-Mobile not AT&T.

    I think carriers buy or share time on networks. On my 9900 on TMO I would constantly see it on at&t's network.

    Some say TMO & at&t don't share the same band technology but I know what I've seen on my phone.

    Not really sure how that works but as long as it jumps from tower to tower and keeps my connected I'm good with that.

    T-Mobile and AT&T have roaming agreements in place, and given the relatively poorer network TMO has, maybe that's why your phone would have jumped on the AT&T network.

    TMO and AT&T do have common bands also, though. AT&T's 3G and '4G' networks run on the 850 MHz and 1900 MHz bands. As a result of the failed merger, AT&T ended up having to transfer some 1900 MHz bandwidth to T-Mobile, which the latter deployed as 3G and '4G.' What this means is that if you are using, say, an AT&T branded 9900, prior to this transfer, you would have at best done 2G speeds (because all 9900s have all the GSM 2G bands.) But if you were in an area where the spectrum transfer took place, you would, all of a sudden, have noticed 3G and '4G' speeds. Examples of such areas are Las Vegas, San Francisco bay area, etc. This is not what happened in your particular case though, as your phone actually said AT&T.

    As for the person who picked up AT&T LTE on his Z10, thatdoesn't sound very plausible to me, because in order from a TMO Z10 to pick up AT&T LTE, there would have to be:

    1. No T-Mobile network (2G/3G/'4G'/LTE) around him. Remember, a TMO SIM will force the phone to look for TMO's networks first and foremost. Only if it finds none will it then jump on the AT&T network.
    2. An LTE network roaming agreement between AT&T and TMO. Which I'm doubtful exists.
