I used it on T-Mobile when I first got it. My fastest speeds so far have been on T-Mobile at 3-4 Mbps down (not near a 4G tower).
but it still a 3G right??
Yes, that is 3G speed. The phone is capable of 4G speeds if you are near a 4G tower.
Fastest I have ever hit on speedtest.net on mine is 8.93Mbps down and 1.914Mbps up. This was just outside the San Francisco airport. And on Galaxy Nexus (GSM)/Unlocked running 4.0.2.
so that means there is nothing different between the t-mobile phone (signal , interent speed) right??
Not sure i understand the question?
like t-mobile galaxy S II, was any different between the galaxy nexus and galaxy s II??

You should go research the specs of each phone via Google and find that out on your own.
In terms of Tmobile 3g/4g support they are pretty much the same. Possible optomizations for the Tmobile branded galaxy s2 might give it a slight benefit.
4.65" screen, pentaband (not quad), and 2.4x the pixels among others.

There's also one important disadvantage. There's a "Tethering manager" process in the T-Mo G S II that checks to see if the tethering SOC is on your data plan. If it's not, you get a redirect to a page to add it at a cost of 15 dollars a month.
True but since this is the official forum...check the terms of your data plan. Using wifi hotspot or tethering could be a violation of your contract terms...
Even if it works.... ;)
Unless you want to pay the 15/mo. of course...
And cpu and baseband config and glass types and lack of fm tuner...the list goes on. You can view detailed spec sheets all over the place.
Or switch to the current 5gb promo data option and get it free for a limited time! ;)
