        If you can share the bands/links with the bands for each device individually we can tell you if they would be compatible!

              Hey cheetah1023 I'm seeing that ll of these phones have frequencies that our network supports. In my opinion, you're best bet would be getting the XZs or the XZ Premium. Mainly because of the 4G bands. Keep in mind, you'll wanna look at our Bring your own device setup guide for more info if you're looking use any of theses devices on our network

                    It's possible that one will work too. In my experience, most unsupported phones easily connect to 2G. It's usually 3G and 4G where they can struggle. That isn't always the case, but I figured I'd give you a heads-up before you make your purchase.

                        Not to thread hijack, but it's on topic.  What about the Sony Xperia XZ2?  This model is being sold at big box stores here in the US, but so far, it seems like it will not work with VoLTE on T-Mo from what I'm hearing.  The phone itself is completely compatible though (seems the only thing it doesn't have is Band 71).
