    Has anyone bought an ATIV S and used it on T-Mobile USA's network? Does everything work? Do you get updates for it? Where did you buy it? I would only be interested in buying new. Thanks.

    I bought one today off Amazon for $411 with Saturday delivery. It is unlocked and should work on all 3G bands T-Mo and AT&T. I will be using mine on AT&T I am hoping it will get 4G speeds. I know it wont work on LTE but AT&T 4G would be nice. I will post more tomorrow and over the next few days. That is if I do get it tomorrow.

    Picked one up off ebay from Canadian seller swiftronicsinc for about $380. Its an unlocked model T899M which has an LTE band compatible with tmobile usa if its available in your area. Use the Samsung apn settings app apn | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States) to add apn fast.t-mobile.com and you should be set. LTE is not available for me yet, so that is untested but I should be getting LTE in June(Seattle, WA) and will update if it works. Everything else works fine. Its a really nice phone.


    Update:
    LTE showed up on my phone today. Got 'no internet connection' errors until I added the apn as described above. Now it works!

    Thanks. What condition did you buy it in? Brand new, refurbished or used? Was yours a Rogers or Bell version? That's a great price!

    It is Rogers and brand new, box had been opened(I assume for the unlocking), but it is definitely brand new.

    You got a great deal! I am curious to know how it works on T-Mobile.

    Did you get any accessories like a gel case for it yet? Would it take the same as a Galaxy SIII?

    No I looked at that yesterday at the Best Buy the ATIV S is longer and more narrow than the S3 the cases didn't fit right. This phone is shaped more like the S4. I checked the ATIV S with the S4 display they were almost identical in shape and size. That Best Buy didn't have any S4 cases for me to test.

    I am getting HSPA+ speeds on AT&T 7 mbps down 1 mbps up

    T-Mobile LTE, at least in my area, is hit-or-miss. I'll be bringing my ATIV S up when I visit a a parental unit and see what it recognizes whilst I'm up there. I know that Verizon is rolling out Band IV on LTE, so it'll be interesting to see what shakes out.
