Anyone in NYC using an iPhone 5 on T-Mobile? How is it treating you? Any weird pitfalls with the service or plan?

This is a follow-up to this
question. I want an iPhone 5, and with the new iPhones coming out soon
, that means price drop. I'd be purchasing the phone outright.
I used to be on T-Mobile and was very happy with the service and pricing, but two years ago I wanted an iPhone so I had to switch to Verizon. Between the cost (>$100/mo.), the lack of reception in my apartment, and my inability to re-up the contract for a subsidized phone without having to lose unlimited data, Verizon just isn't worth it anymore.
For reference, I use about 2.5-3GB of data/mo., but I can cut that down if necessary (e.g. I stream podcasts instead of downloading them over WiFi first.)
