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?

LTE will not be affected as the Unlocked version has AWS LTE otherwise know as band 4. Also T-Moble is migrating their 3/3.5g from 1700/2100 to 1900 so eventually it will all be 1900 (however long that will take).
