So, I went on eBay to find a used iPhone 4s for a good price. The iPhone 4s that I found was unlocked, so I'd like to know what coverage i'd receiving with it.
Right now, I have the HTC Sensation 4G and I receive 4G coverage on it. If I used an unlocked iPhone 4s, will I also receive 4G coverage on it?
Sorry if this question was asked already.
Only if you live in a refarmed area. The iPhone 4S only supports 1900 PCS band, and not 1700/2100 AWS band. T-Mobile eventually will have majority of their markets on the 1900 PCS band, but until then you will only get 2G.
I'm not sure about what you mean about refarmed? :O
T-mobile is changing their frequencies(refarmed) to 1900 PCS. If you area hasn't been changed then you will only get 2G.
This is the best map so far, but keep in mind this is user made(various users report in to show coverage)
I think that I do live in a refarmed area. I live close to Philadelphia and where I live now has 3G/4G HSPA+ so I guess that an iPhone would have good signal. I'm hoping that it does.
If the towers near you are refarmed then you should get 4G(HSPA+), but if not then you will get only 2G until they do. If this is 3rd party sell then put your T-Mobile sim in and test it. If it only gets E then that's what you'll get for who knows how long. If you are willing to wait, buy it, but if not then don't buy it.
Yep. It's a third party seller. I think that I will have 4G Hspa+. I have an htc sensation right now and that's what it has and I get 4G with it so it might work I hope.
The Sensation runs on 1700/2100 AWS not 1900 PCS.
