    Worth swapping s3 to nexus 4?

    I have had an s3 on Verizon since its release date but am tempted to grab a nexus 4 on T-Mobile. I like Verizon's coverage but am getting turned off by there new policies and lack of pushing updates out. My contract is up next month and kinda wanna go the Gsm route so I can buy devices unlocked from Google. My question is this, is it worth leaving Verizon for T-Mobile and grab a nexus 4 or should I wait a month and grab an s4 on T-Mobile? Maybe even wait for the nexus 5??? Thoughts?

    Nexus 4 isn't lte device. I would rather wait for s4 on tmo, or better yet wait for next nexus device on Verizon.

    My question too you is,how's Tmos service in your area?If you can't answer that,then you have some homework to do.

    Not sure how the service is. If I make the jump I would wait to port number over in case it is not good. If I'm within the 14 days I would just return and cancel if unhappy with service. I know it will not be as good as Verizon's I'm sure.

    I suggest you do what I did.Get you a Tmo phone and drive around town and find out how good the signal is in your neck of the woods.If the signal is good,then be like MJ and make that change.Holla!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm going to T-Mobile too. Verizon has gotten expensive and they're getting worse and worse every day. I'm waiting for a new nexus to come out...hoping it's a Motorola or even an HTC with a big battery.

    Think I'm gonna wait for next nexus too. S3 to nexus 4 isn't worth the move. Devices are so close in specs. See what next nexus brings.

    I forgot too mention,Tmo gave me 180 for my S3.I applied it to my bill,at 30 dollars a month, that's like 5mths w/o a bill.
