You (and I) will likely lose 3G/3.5g speeds when the change occurs, as (according to a friend who is high on their tech support food chain) AT&T plans to convert the T-Mobile 3G bands to LTE for their existing network. My friend said that AT&T hopes to move all T-Mobile smartphone users to AT&T 4G/LTE devices within the next two years to facilitate the changeover.

He made the point that by then I'd have a better phone anyway, and I had to explain to him that the N900 was to be my phone for at least the next three years, until this announcement anyway.

It sucks big donkey balls.
