    I am having a little bit of a hard time understanding the difference between TMO 4G and LTE and AWS so if anyone cares to explain it really simple language feel free.

    Here's the situation. I can get an officially unlocked iPhone4S for $150. It's for a family member who would use it on Tmobile. I have read and read and there is so much info out there.

    Here's my questions. What is better 4 or 4S? I am assuming 4S?
    Will it get 4G?
    Will it get LTE?
    Other than inserting my SIM to make sure it works, what should I be looking for?

    Anything else I should look for. I've used a 3GS forever and I finally upgraded to a 5. My family member would use the phone a lot on wifi but would also use it on non wifi so I want to make sure he wouldn't be stuck on 3G or worse Edge.

    To me $150 is a really good deal but I want to be sure so any help is appreciated.

    4s is the way to go, you can get 4g speed but not LTE (iPhone 5 and 5s will get LTE)
    I would go here to make sure the phone is unlocked and not a blocked/stolen phone also before purchasing.
