I tried searching for compatibility via willmyphonework.net, but it's not listed yet due to it being so new. How compatible is this phone with the T-Mobile network?
Band listings for the global version via the storefront page:
● GSM: B2 / B3 / B5 / B8
● WCDMA: B1 / B2 / B4 / B5 / B8
● LTE: B1 / B2 / B3 / B4 / B5 / B7 / B8 / B20 / B38 / B40
Not too bad. T-Mobile uses GSM band 2 (1900), WCDMA bands 2 & 4 and LTE bands 2, 4, 5*, 12, 46, 66 & 71
You won't have T-Mobile's extended range LTE on bands 12 & 71. Band 5 LTE is only found in Myrlte Beach, SC. You have both WCDMA (UMTS) bands 3 & 4 that will allow fall-back to UMTS in the event that the VoLTE is not compatible.
Would this be my first choice for use on T-Mobile? NO. Would I say "Thanks a bunch" if someone gave one to me? Yep.
A lot depends on where you plan to use it.
