Are you saying this will affect LTE as well? I thought it was only the 1700Mhz GSM freq that was missing.

All this makes me think choosing the unlocked from HTC might have not been the best choice. (I had some trouble with my credit card and couldn't get it ordered from tmo during the trade up special weekend).

While I can still switch at this point it would cost me $140. (Rather than doing that I would probably just get the Nexus 4 instead.)

That all said... is there any tmo map that shows current LTE coverage areas?

Their LTE coverage is very thin.
They do not have a map that shows LTE... I have seen the new map and it does not show LTE coverage either.
I have been told that it's full of holes even in areas that they have announced as being deployed.
That is probably why there is no map to show coverage.
All you can go by is what cities have been "unveiled".

In order to use T-Mo HSPA AWS you need 1700/2100
You can't have one without the other.
One is the uplink and the other is the downlink.
The unlocked version has AWS LTE just not HSPA.
