    I currently have a Droid X phone which is over 3 years old. It is time to bury it. I have always been with Verizon and currently still have my unlimited data. I am month to month with them. I want to get the LG G2. The only way to do this and stay with Verizon is to buy full retail. I was looking into T-Mobile. They have an unlimited talk, text and data plan. I could pay for the new phone over 24 months and it would still be cheaper than what I am paying Verizon now.

    Anyone have experience with T-Mobile to share? Also, I have been using FoxFi to make my phone a mobile hotspot. I've seen that this could be an issue with the LG G2. There is a thread about how to get around this so I'm hoping it won't be a problem.

    Thanks

    I don't think that you'll be able to use FoxFi on T-Mobile. With a 4G unlimited data plan you get a 5GB tethering plan.

    Their unlimited is on their towers, if you utilize another carriers towers, watch out. Read their fine print.

    T -Mobile works fine for me. Also they have really enhanced their network. The previous poster is correct about using T-Mobile towers though as far as data use.

    I would highly encourage you to check the coverage at tmobiles website. If it works where you live/places you visit often it's a no brainer :)
