The only thing I don't get is why is a Nexus 4 off contract through TMo $100 more than through the playstore? It's not like they're paying a subsidy.

I wonder if they are aiming at the people who don't know much about GSM / HSPA / 3g / 4G bands

Or for people who think they are getting a deal. I suspect they are aiming the phone at people who do not yet have a contract or the funds to ditch their currant device.

It is a weird move, indeed, though.

I'd love to go no contract and get my own phone... ideally a nexus. But I can't live with 16gb storage and no LTE.

It's not uncommon for carriers here to also price the phones you get through them (even off contract) to be very expensive. I just buy through local online stores who get their stock from Hong Kong, where the electronics are cheapest

That is one thing that irks me.
The LTE is not a huge issue, as I stated before, before AT&T flipped the 4g on in my area, I was getting decent HSPA+ speeds, usually about 7mbps.

And, I much rather have a constant 7mbps over 30mbps that is only intermittent at best.

It always cracks me up when people get insane speed test, when it is nothing more then a spike at the time of their testing. I think the highest I got was about 50mbps or something like that. Figures I cannot find the dang screenshot. But the point is, it don't happen often.

Actually, this makes me wonder if those 50mbps are just spikes to create a quick buffer then drops (throttles) shortly after to a much lower speed.

Meh, just theories

We live in the same area AJ I've been eying ATT but need for the right phone to come out for me to jump. The locked bootloader on the VZW GS3 was the last straw... I won't buy another phone on VZW.

For the most part, I get decent connection. Unless I am at work. Since I transfered, I work in a hit or miss area indoors and my battery takes a hit. I suspect (hope!?) AT&T will put another tower up near Adams / Weld county. Then I should be set

Speaking of Verizon, I have heard that they have the slowest 3g service.

One reason I opted for AT&T was the extra HSPA + band. On verizon you are either 4g or, a very slow 3g connection. When I got back into verizon, my 3g speeds (and even my buddy when he got his much waited for iphone 5 (and later got a note 2)) I rarely seen speeds over 500kbps on 3g. Once in a while it would spike to over 1mbps. 4g speeds where decent, but my HSPA+ destroyed his iphone 5 in speed test. It was a bad area at work for verizon, now doubt.

I suspected that extra HSPA+ band would be useful, and I am glad I went that route.

Verizon, slow 3g, decent to great 4g, but if you don't have 4g, be prepared to wait... :yikes:
