    Hi! My 7+ is coming Wednesday. All my previous iPhone's have been on Sprint. What is it like using the iPhone on T-Mobile?

    The same as using an iPhone on every other carrier.

    But like, with data speeds, is it faster than your typical mid-range Android phone?

    Data is data, it mostly depends on your carrier and coverage that you have where you are using it.

    My guess is Tmobile speeds will be faster than Sprints.
    But your individual results and local area coverage may vary.

    I just ran this Speedtest from my Galaxy S7 Edge on T-Mobile in a very rural area between Baltimore and Philadelphia. I imagine you will have similar results via an iPhone as they both have the ability to connect to LTE Advanced and the newer LTE bands. I must say this speed test is faster than my cable internet lol. I've been extremely happy with T-Mobile since I switched from AT&T a few years ago.

    I have an LG Stylo 2 Plus right now, as an in between (my SE couldn't be unlocked from Sprint). Wouldn't the data speeds actually be better on the iPhone?

    That's totally possible. I'm not completely up to date on which phones have the newest and fastest cellular chips. I've read the 7 is capable of 450 mbps, don't know how that translates into practical usage as you're not gonna see those speeds day to day.

    I'm not sure if I have this right, but something about the cellular modem.

    I'm on the North Eastern Shore. Elkton, MD. I get good signal pretty much everywhere.

    Yeah, on my Stylo, I get great signal everywhere in Hagerstown. No matter where I've gone in Maryland, I've never lost LTE once.
