It has been a few weeks since Lollipop rolled out to the LG G3 on AT&T and Sprint, but T-Mobile users have been left in the lurch.

T-Mobile Revamps Its Coverage Maps, Now Relies On Real-Time Customer Data For Improved Accuracy

So here's a fun fact: when you look at a carrier's coverage map, you're actually seeing its best guess as to where coverage is strong/weak/dead/etc. It's basically a theoretical map – it's where they should have coverage (but no promises are being made).
