    I am looking to upgrade from my G'Nex to another unlocked phone, but I would really like one with wifi-calling...I am thinking along the lines of a nexus 5 level or up a little $350-400 range. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

    Otherwise looks like I will get a S4 or an G2 in the pay by the month club. :mad:

    Nexus won't get you wifi calling, as it's not a T-Mobile branded device. Sadly, the same goes for the Moto X - and subsequently the Moto G as well. So there go all the devices that I would otherwise recommend :(

    Of the remaining big options (HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, LG G2), I'd personally probably go for the G2 - but I really don't think you can go too horribly wrong with any of those top-three.

    I agree with code, however if your not in a LTE area and/or just dont mind older phones the S3 is also a phone that will work. They do have a LTE version but I bet the non-LTE one is easier to find.

    Yeah, I guess that's where I am going....the S3 does make sense come to think of it...even if its not the tour de force the other flag ships are..

    And i would consider going into hock to Tmo for the G2 if it had a battery that was upgradable..Love that phone....but my work hours really necessitate a real big battery or being able to swap them out.
