Anyone know how to add a persons picture when they call you?
I can't find the option to add profile pictures to contacts in my girlsfriends S5.

Can we confirm that? I'm not seeing a lot of the frequencies t-mobile needs http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-4988 listed as being on that variant.

Edit: Vodafone shows for the F

2G GSM (frequency bands) 850/900/1800/1900MHz (type frequency bands)
3G GSM (frequency bands) 850/900/1900/2100MHz (type frequency bands)
4G LTE (frequency bands) B1(2100),B2(1900),B3(1800),B5(850),B7(2600),B8(900),B20(800)

T-Mobile says:

LTE: 1700 MHz and 2100 MHz
3G/4G: 1700 MHz and 2100 MHz

Wikipedia says, re: T-Mobile:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-Mobile_US#4G_LTE_upgrade

I think for now, no LTE and if you're lucky and have 2100mhz you get 3G. It looks like in the next year or two that you may end up getting higher speeds after all as a result of them upgrading their 2G bands and repurposing the spectrum they bought from MetroPCS.
