Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) Compatibility

guess52

    I have a Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) that I bought from Telcel in Mexico (model SM-A520F). Based on the radios it should be compatible, and T-mobile is the Telcel roaming partner in the US. However, when I put in my IMEI to T-mobile's website it says that the model is not compatible.

     

    Does anyone have experience activating this model? I'm trying to figure out whether I should order a SIM card to my US address in advance of my upcoming move in a week. I only have 24 hours between travel and starting my new job so I'd like to get as much worked out in advance (and without visiting a store) if possible.

     

    Thanks all.
