    Hello Everyone,
    my boyfriend bought a Verizon Galaxy S3 and we managed to unlock the phone for T-Mobile. He upgraded to a 4G LTE plan, but it seems he isn't receiving 4G LTE. After searching around the internet it may be possible that a Verizon S3 can't receieve 4G LTE on T-Mobile.

    Can anyone tell if this is true?

    T-Mobile operates it's 4G LTE on the 1700/2100 AWS frequency (Band 4). If I recall correctly, the Verizon S3 only supports LTE on the 700 frequency, more specifically only Band 13. Therefore it would work due to a hardware limitation.
