OK so I am new to all this but welcome a learning challenge.
Later this week I will receive a used, NA version, GSM unlocked Pre 2 I found on eBay. In my area T-Mobile has rolled out 4g at 22 of 26 cell towers... My research shows it as operating on the 2100 MHz band.
If I activate on T-Mobile I assume I'll get 4g speed around most of my area and 2.5 EDGE when traveling. Does that sound right?
Or would I be better off trying AT&T?
Based on coverage maps it looks like T-Mobile has better coverage out in the countryside where I spend time kayaking... A bonus over AT&T, but I don't want to activate with T-Mobile if I cant get better than 2.5g where I spend most of my time (in town).
OK so no one answered my post...
But I looked around this and other forums and decided to go with Straight Talk.
They have an official "bring your own phone" policy and their Pre 2 subscribers seem to love them for speed and ease of use. They require that the phone receives @ 850 and 1900 mHz which is no problem for the unlocked Pre 2.

Looks like from a previous post you have a Pixi + is that right?
I never heard of Beige Phone so I looked them up. They are just a reseller and not a carrier from what I see.
You are looking for a good carrier in your area for Pixi + would that be correct? Some more info on where you are, which phone and which version would really help someone to help you. Is it a GSM (SIM Card) phone or CDMA (SIMless)? Is it unlocked? Different carriers have more or less coverage depending on where you make home...
