    hey guy, i just wondering, i just got a replacement phone from apple, the serial number end with FH1C. so i suppose it is a tmobile version. this replacement iphone all I see is either I get 4G or E, i didn't get any 3G at all, so i just wondering is it common or i just don't get a tmobile version after all. thanks

    That's normal; with the T-Mobile carrier bundle the phone will show 4G when connected to 3G (and LTE when connected to LTE).

    Edit: That explains not seeing 3G, anyway. I don't know whether seeing E is normal.

    i used to have a SII, and at my location it show 4G, but my replacement iphone only show E at my house. i thought that once i got the tmobile version i will not get E speed anymore because E will become 3G, and the area reframed 3G will have 4G.
