T-mobile has no LTE. MetroPCS IS "the main LTE network". MetroPCS is 100% of the LTE network.
So there is no LTE overlap, and they aren't shutting down any LTE.
T-Mobile actually has a lot of sites up they've been adding them since the refarming in November last year they're just not available for the public to use yet they'll probably be announcing the 1st couple markets (NYC, San Diego, Las Vegas & Kansas City etc.) when they change plans on 3/27 and also release the LTE GS3 shortly after. Its supposed to be 100mill pops covered by summer then 200mill pops by the end of the year.

They'll be shutting down metro's LTE network as they go along and start overlapping. T-Mobile LTE equipment is much better anyways its release 10 vs metros release 8 equipment. (Release 10 is LTE Advanced)
^^^This isn't even speculation T-Mobile said it in a press release

Hmmmm, interesting conversation here & on the other thread. Love my metro s3, but wouldn't mind having the note2 on tmo also. something else I haven't seen mentioned yet. "IF" I wanted to go to tmo now, or when their lte starts up, would they accept my metro s3, or do I have to get a new one?

Confirmed. Metro PCS is getting the S4. FCC logs already have the S4 for Metro with its own separate model #.

Galaxy S4 Makes a Layover at FCC Before Sprint, MetroPCS Launch

Since launch day has already happened, I think that would make the answer,

No.

No dumb bugs for me here and I've had it for about 4 and a half months now.

Or are you waiting to see if the S4 has any dumb bugs? Might've misunderstood.

I'm literally trying to look for a reason not to wait for the S4 since I could get an S3 way earlier than having to wait for the S4

Tell yourself the S4 is too big. Get the S3 on clearence.

The s4 does have some cool features but not enough for me to dump my s3, especially with the custom rom I have on it.
