    I am thinking of upgrading to an iPhone 6s Plus from my current iPhone 6. I am on the T-Mobile network. My coverage at home and at work is poor, but I have WiFi access so it is not a big deal. If you are on the T-Mobile network and upgraded to an iPhone 6s/6s+, can you please share your experience with improved coverage or lack thereof. I know it will differ by area, but I just ant to get a general idea whether it is worth it to upgrade to the latest iPhone.

    Band 12 is extremely amazing and beneficial in the places that it's available. I had T-Mobile about 8 years ago but I had to switch because I never had service at home and calls constantly dropped. I switched back to T-Mobile when the iPhone 6S released, and my house consistently sits on 2 bars of LTE. Band 12 has also improved coverage on my entire side of town. The grocery stores and local places I frequently visit would be stuck between 'No Service' and Edge, however recently I've noticed my phone never switches from LTE. Band 12 is great.

    Their coverage map lets you switch between a map showing coverage with or without band 12. Their map is known to be a little over optimistic at times though.

    Based on their map though, T-Mobile looks almost usable in my area. The towns I would be going to are pretty much covered, but the entire commutes and my house wouldn't be covered lol.
