    GSM speeds are fast in Atlanta. I have a galaxy s2 skyrocket on metropcs BYOD program. I think I'm being throttled so maybe speeds are faster.

    1700/2100 AWS is also needed for HSPA +
    Correct, unless your in a range of refarmed towers, and even then your looking at HSPA 21 NOT 42

    Fixed it for you, these are brand NEW markets, not old ones with the new BYOD

    LG Optimus F3 (tmobile Motion) is going to be sold too.

    Detroit does start tomorrow. All Corp employees have confirmed it. Apparently, they were training this morning. Kind of last minute. There are going to be so many screw ups this weekend. Anyway, for those who already have BYOD in their markets and have used it(or those familiar with the process), when I walk into the corp. store with my phone, how much total will I be spending? I've bought quite a few cases and accessories to accompany the S4 and have $35 left in the phone budget for this month. One of the employees said she didn't have the specifics yet, but that the card should be $5-15. All I have to do is buy the card and the rest is free?

    So the new markets will have BYOP but what else are they going to sell? With no Metro towers around I'm guessing these new stores will just have the GS4, the F3, and the Lumia to choose from maybe a feature phone or 2. If its a big corporate store its gonna look a little empty. You could fit all those phones on a single display.
