    All T-Mobile phones have HD Voice. Period. They don't sell any non-HSPA phones anymore, and anything on HSPA is already HD Voice. VoLTE and WiFI calling are also HD voice, but use an even more high definition codec than HSPA. Now, if any of them drop to GSM for some reason they'll drop in quality.
    This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My signature is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my signature is useless. Without my signature, I am useless.

    I don't know if this means anything but my LG Optimus L90 just did an Android system upgrade.
    It is still 4.4.2 from what it was before the upgrade.
    I only just now am using it after the update a few minutes ago so can't say if anything has changed or improved.

    I really like this phone and also my Nokia Lumia 635 which are both mentioned in the original post.
    I don't think I have a favorite of the two.
    They both each have their merits.
    I use them both on Wi-Fi only so I have no opinion on data speed from either.

    You could unlock it and then use a T-Mobile SIM (which would cost $), or you could just flash T-Mo firmware (which would cost nothing) and use a T-Mobile SIM. I would choose the latter but if you need it unlocked anyway, it doesn't matter. If you only plan to use it on T-Mobile, the free route probably makes more sense.

    I got the update too. Normally T-Mobile itemizes what was changed but I don't see much. They're adding in-flight texting to most of their phones so there's definitely that added in, and I see KnockOn has been added. Other than that I just read "performance improvements" so hopefully it's a good update because the L90 already works great.
    Castrol EDGE 0W-20 is my drug of choice.

    Thanks for the clarification. I agree though that changing the firmware makes most sense. By "updating firmware" do you mean rooting and installing a new recovery and ROM? I ask because I temporarily bricked my Galaxy S2 after installing a recovery that had a mismatching kernel after the OTA update.
