T-Mobile USA today announced that it has migrated its HSPA+ data services to its 1900MHz spectrum in 10 new markets. The markets include Phoenix, Mesa, and Tucson, Ariz.; San Francisco, Modesto, Oakland, San Jose, and Stockton, Calif.; and Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Customers with unlocked devices in these markets will be able to access 3G/4G speeds with devices such as the Apple iPhone. T-Mobile already offers 1900MHz HSPA+ in Baltimore, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Washington D.C. Part of T-Mobile USA's LTE 4G plan requires that it refarm its 1900MHz PCS spectrum from 2G/2.5G to 3G/4G services. It will continue to roll out 1900MHz service across its voice/data foorprint as it clears the way to use its 1700MHz AWS spectrum for LTE starting next year.

Metro Areas

It could be made more evident what "metro area" means..... Its certinly not the entire market, or any portion close to it. No actual 1900 MHz coverage that I've seen in Washington, DC. Its nice to know that I can go to Falls Churth VA and possibly get 3G

Orphaned 3G Devices

T-Mobile has been in the practice of releasing devices that have WCDMA ability only on Band IV. When the GSM faucet is shut off on 1900 and LTE appears on Band IV folks are going to have a non-functional T-Mobile device on their hands.

Hey tmobile what about providence and boston ?

And while you are at it why not drop your restrictions on call forwarding for controlled accounts ?
Can you be more specific when you say controlled accounts ? Do you have a monthly 4G account ?

not just iphones

not just iphones. any phone with 1900mhz 3g capability. including many android phones.
Really what they should have said was that AT&T phones now work in 10 cities.
