It should work with T-Mobile LTE.

I can confirm this works. I have a T-mobile sim inserted in my Verizon Note 3. Make sure you change your apn settings. I've had issues sending and receiving MMS with the suggested T-mobile apn settings. I have APN protocol set to IPv4 and APN roaming protocol set to IPv4/IPv6. This worked for awhile then it stopped working after I started playing with settings again (I just can't leave things alone). I managed to get mms working using hangouts to send and receive mms. I had to open hangouts go to settings - SMS - Access point names - select fast.metropcs.com.

Writing this just made me think of something else to try. I will try and report back. I would love others feed back to help refine this beast!

Tmo lte is not everywhere yet, should be able to at least get hspa. As far as I know, all of the gn3 variants in us / have lte capability should work. Att ones only work in refarmed areas.
I love it, when a plan comes together.
