Hope the experts weigh in on this
So you had Verizon sim unlock it? I'm assuming so otherwise I don't think it would work but you say its working with the exception of LTE? I'm unfamiliar with T-Mobile bands but I think the Verizon G2 has them all. Is there a difference in the plan to include their LTE? You're certain your area has LTE?
Check out the Nexus 4 forums. There are a ton of hybrid radios they flash to enable LTE and educate on Radio differences. There's a sticky on top for all LTE diilscussion. I don't think you'll need to flash radios, but you'll find resources on how to possibly enable it in APN settings.
Have you modified any APN settings?
Are you running stock software?
Edit: I am no expert. Hope that's OK?
