        Hi there! After a quick glance, it appears that this device should be compatible with a few of the T-Mobile network, but we may have better luck if we knew exactly which device it is so that we could see if any previous users have reported experiences one way or another!

          This phone would probably work fairly well in most areas but it lacks band-12, which T-Mobile uses for both range and building penetration. Also, the specs say nothing about VoLTE compatibility, which is needed for calls and texts over LTE. In some areas, where T-Mobile has discontinued band-2 UMTS, the phone could really struggle making calls without VoLTE.
