        If it is either E6603, E6653 models it should work fine for LTE or 2G but not HSPA+ 3G/4G.  It shows LTE Band 2,4 and 12 which are T-Mobile's LTE bands. For HSPA+ T-Mobile primarily uses 1700/2100 which this phone doesn't look like it has.

        3G bandsHSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 - E6603, E6653

                As with any non T-Mobile phone you won't have some of the special tweaks

                that T-Mobile has the manufacturers build in like Gogo texting, WiFi

                calling can be hit or miss.

                 

                Now T-Mobile has had a Sony phone (Z3) that supported Band 12 and VoLTE so

                Sony already had done that.

                 

                As far as supported frequencies as mentioned this phone supports all of

                T-Mobile's current LTE bands. Issue would be if you hit an area without LTE

                you will drop all the way down to 2G so basic data  (slow) and calling.

                T-Mobile has pretty good LTE coverage now so probably wouldn't have to much

                of an issue but just know it's there when it does happen.
