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.
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.

I presume this update will come as a modified 6.1.3. Is there a way to get visual voicemail and other said enhancements while keeping a jailbroken 6.1.2?
Edit: Nevermind, this is a carrier update not FW.

That's great if you live in one of the 7 cities that has T-Mobile LTE. Then you fall back to 2G.

So it sounds like my wife's AT&T iPhone 4 that is officially unlocked will be able to get 3G speeds instead of just Edge on T-Mobile? Or are iPhone 4's not included? I thought it was impossible to get faster Internet speeds with the current iPhones on T-Mobile because of the incompatible frequencies.

Guys there is a difference between firmware update and carrier update. Jailbroken phones don't get firmware update but they still get carrier updates and that does not affect the jailbreak.
Can't upload a freakin image on this sh1tty ModMyi app. Please fix this mods.

This isn't an official map, it's a user driven map where 3G has been sighted and reported..
Sightings of T-Mobile 3G/4G/HSPA+ coverage on 1900MHz (PCS/UMTS band II)
On my iphone 4s I get about 9-10mb on speed tests
And yes it used to be impossible, but because of the deal falling through with ATT buying T-mobile, part of their agreement stated that if it fell through that ATT had to give up some spectrum to T-Mobile... that allowed T-Mobile to support the 1900MHz frequency required by iPhones... since then, T-Mobile has been frantically implementing it
