Though not specifically related to the Nexus 4, it is rumored that T-Mobile will be dropping contracts altogether within the next month. Since this rumor has been floating around for quite a while I personally believe there is something to it. T-Mobile also plans to have their LTE network covering 100 million people by "mid 2013" with a total of 200 million people by the end of this year. Despite being the last to deploy LTE technology it looks like they are playing quite the game of catch up, which i'm sure is in part due to the spectrum T-Mobile acquired from the failed AT&T merger. Worth noting: - LTE will only work on the Nexus 4 with pre 4.2.2 software. If you want to access LTE you will have to stick with an older baseband version.
