Tmobile 4g rollout

Posted Dec 20, 2012 at 11:55 am in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

I was hoping someone could clarify something for me on t-mobile rolling out their hspa+ to some cities. We are not yet in a city with it but I plan on going to t-mobile as soon as my nexus 4 arrives. My wife however is staying with her iphone 4. What I am interested in is with her phone not supporting hspa+ would she be able to take advantage of 3g speeds on those rolled out networks once they arrive? Or will she still be relegated to 2g if she switched like she would be without the roll-out. T-mobile offers a much better plan for us and she is currently off contract with Att so a switch to cheaper prices would be very welcome. If she can only get 2g speeds does anyone have any other suggestions for what she could do? Straight talk was a thought for a bit but she does not want to jailbreak and relies heavily on mms/sms. A sim card swap would probably be too much as well for if she ever had to restart her phone so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
