T-Mobile Releases Carrier Software Update for Unlocked iPhone 5 Units
T-mobile Friday released a carrier software update for unlocked iPhone 5 units that enables 4G LTE, 4G HSPA+, visual voicemail, the 4G network indicator, the commercial mobile alert system, and auto configures several carrier settings. The release confirms a rumor released earlier this week from TmoNews.
The update can be installed through iTunes, or via an OTA (over the air) update on any unlocked iPhone 5 on T-mobile’s network that is running iOS 6.1.x or later. T-mobile and Apple have started offering a new version of the iPhone 5 that is compatible out of the box with T-mobile's cellular network for pre-order just this Friday. The iPhone 5 is supposed to hit the shelves for T-mobile customers on April 12th.
If you have an AT&T iPhone 5, Verizon iPhone 5, Sprint iPhone 5, or a different non-T-mobile iPhone 5, unlocked or not, then you won’t have to worry about downloading and installing this carrier update.

This won't work if you are jailbroken.

So what if I have a Verizon iPhone 5 and later want to move to t-mobile. Could I just update some software and use the phone I already have?

You should be able to update the carrier without loosing your jailbreak via iTunes.

Bummer! Only for iPhone 5's. I guess that makes sense...I would love to have visual voicemail on my 4s, though.

Apparently T-Mobile pulled the support page; I guess the carrier update is delayed for some reason.Member of the hackint0sh forums.

For those of you who has Jailbroken iPhone 5. Don't hit the "Update" button in iTunes thinking it will only do a carrier update. The carrier update is not even available anywhere (iTunes or OTA). I guess we will just have to wait...

Maybe they just put this,
T-Mobile iPhone or any officially unlocked GSM iPhone
Latest iOS software version
Device software is not jailbroken
50% battery life or connected to a power source
Data connection or a computer with iTunes and internet access
Minimum of 1 MB available memory (File size of update is ~10 KB)"
so people would update just so they can get all these features. May not be true as some have successfully tried.
