All 3G-enabled iPhones will work with this new refarm. There is no need for special phones anymore. T-Mobile is aligning themselves with AT&T frequency/spectrum-wise.
Now to answer JaysonPD's question:
It all depends on your definition of "4G." 4G HSPA+? Yes, the iPhone 5 will get 21 Mbps HSPA+. From all of the iPhone 5 tests I've seen in refarmed areas, it seems that T-Mobile has only applied 21 Mbps HSPA+ for now. 42 Mbps DC-HSPA+ will come for sure over PCS (1900).
4G LTE? Again, yes, but only for AT&T's iPhone 5 and only after T-Mobile launches LTE (2013).
After the MetroPCS merger is complete, T-Mobile's network will be made up of the following:
1900 MHz (PCS): GSM/GPRS/EDGE (small amounts for roaming and legacy phones), HSPA+
1700 MHz (AWS): HSPA+ (small amounts for the early AWS-only phones), LTE

Hi new to this forum and hope to get some help with struggling with tmo and iphone. Have a factory unlocked Iphone 4S, bought new from 3rd party seller, still has a year of applecare left. Hooked up to Tmo about 3 weeks ago and at first it seemed to work great, surfed well, pages loaded quickly, instagram-ing to my heart's content. Then I went out of town where tmo has crappy service. So just shut it off for 3 days. Came back, and only the phone and texting (not iMessage) work when not in wifi area. Works great on wifi, but otherwise, total crap. Can't load anything on the internet, no siri, no instagram, among a million other things that don't work when not on wifi. I have talked to Apple twice, got a new sim from tmo, had the settings checked by tmo (albeit the guy didn't seem to really know what he was doing) and no change. It's a total brick when not in a wifi area, other than receiving phone calls. Anyone have any suggestions?! Is it that the network is just so bad in Minneapolis that I am truly just getting nothing? Coworkers have other smartphones on Tmo that work great. Can't imagine that their Edge network is that awful (am not seeing 3G anywhere, although I think it was being picked up that first great week). Thanks for any help you can give me!!

Does your E/3G show in the top next to Tmobile? If not turn on your cellular data. Settings, general, network.
If it does show check your son settings. Settings, general, network, cellular data network.
Your cellular data son should be epc.tmobile.com
Sounds like your Internet just doesn't work. Fix that and you should be fine. Also what plan are you on? Did you run out of data or have it suspended?

Thanks for the thoughts. All of these things are done already. Showing E next to Tmobile and 5 bars up in the left hand corner, have toggled on and off 3G multiple times, get no 3G signal. Have epc.tmobile.com set up...on the $70.00 unlimited Data plan, can't run out of Data. At a little bit of a loss for why it's just not working.

I was just leaving school when I noticed on my Tmobile unlocked 4s was actually getting 3G. I tested it out and the speed was incredible compared to my regular 2g. This was in west palm on forrest hill and congress. If anyone else has seen 3G in Florida post it here so we can start building a map.

I can't wait until Tmobile 3G is in my area. I live in south west Louisiana at the bottom of the state. When I go to Houston,Tx, I notice in certain areas I see 3G on my phone. I'm only a 2 hour drive from Houston.

T-Mo finally turned the switch on for good here in Phoenix, loving it.
Not bad for 3 bars at my house which is about 30 miles from Phoenix in the mountains.
