    I currently am using Straight-Talk and have the T-Mobile sim card, they have the AT&T card back in stock and on sale for 7 bucks currently, and was wondering is it worth it?

    On T-mob my coverage sucks in NE Kansas, but when I have H it flies.. I know from previous experience that AT&T coverage is way better around here, but what is their speed like on the Nexus 4? I dont know much about CDMA/H/LTE and all that junk, so I'm lost on what I will gain or loose by switching..

    Help is appreciated, Thanks!

    H is HSPA (high speed packet access) and will be available on AT&T in most areas. You don't need to worry about LTE as the Nexus 4 doesn't officially support it.

    My guess is that H on AT&T will be pretty similar to it on T-Mobile

    Awesome, and thanks for the info.. I love H speeds, but sprint coverage is bad around here.. while my past experience on AT&T pre-Nexus 4.. was awesome for coverage..

    Kev As sad as I am to say this but if you have AT&T and would like to use their LTE (yes with straight talk) you will need a different phone as the nexus 4 only has AWS (band 4) LTE and Att uses different band.

    My dad lives in Iowa and as such t mobile is few and far between, plus my dad is an over the road truck driver, I got him an htc one x and its using straight talk att sim he has lte on most major freeways and a fairly decent hspa signal in most areas, he has never had a dropped call or no call coverage which is the number one thing for him.
