    Ok so I'm narrowing it down to the gs3.

    Can someone confirm this? Does the international unlocked gs3 work on tmobiles hsdpa+? I want the faster than regular 3G speeds :).

    The international version doesn't support 3G speeds with Tmobile since it doesn't have support for 1700Mhz AWS band. The phone only supports 850, 900, 1900 and 2100Mhz bands for 3G and 850, 900, 1800 and 1900Mhz for GSM/EDGE.

    Nope, the only compatible network is att. It's the same reason why iPhone's don't support Tmobile's network either; there are only few networks in the world that are using AWS band, while the rest of the world uses 850, 900, 1900 and 2100Mhz bands.
