  • T-Mobile Will Be Adding Support for LTE and Visual Voicemail to Unlocked iPhones

    TmoNews has reportedly gotten their hands on an internal document that reveals T-mobile’s plans to enable 4G LTE, visual voicemail, MMS settings, and more for unlocked iPhones via a carrier software update on April 5, 2013:

    The T-Mobile Carrier Update is a minor iOS software update that enables official iPhone support by T-Mobile. When installed, the software update enables a handful of capabilities like Visual Voicemail, MMS Settings and Network/Device optimizations that customers do not have access to today. On April 5, the software update will begin being pushed via OTA to all iPhone devices on the T-Mobile network with iOS 6.1.x or higher.
    All unlocked iPhones running iOS 6.1.x or higher will be able to take advantage of the software update via OTA (over the air) updating, which means there’s no need to connect to iTunes to grab the update when it comes out to the public.

    T-mobile will also be offering HD voice, a feature of the iPhone 5 that has yet to be taken advantage of by the top U.S. cellular carriers. AT&T announced last night that the feature will be coming to AT&T customers later this year; however, T-mobile says the feature will be supported on their iPhone 5 right out of the box.

      T-Mobile store, or web.

      Here's the deal, people:
      I bought an iPhone 5 from the Apple store because the T-Mobile version is going to be locked to N. America & if you get the Verizon edition, it has more bands for International Travel. Although it only reads 3G on the Status Bar, believe me, it's getting 6-7MBS download & I'm in Tacoma.
