Huawai P10 Lite

hp_

    My Iphone broke and I decided to use Huawei P10 lite right now. It shows very low signal, and I had to call to Tmobile customer service, they really almost did not hear me, connection was very terrible. What's my options? I feel like they not really into each other, Huaway and Tmobile.

        Huawei is frowned upon in the US.

        T-Mobile won't sell the phones.

        Those phones lack wide compatibility with T-Mobile.

          Which model of P10? (e.g. LX1, LX2, LX3...)

          When you BYOD, you assume the risk that it might not be compatible.

                  According to GSMarena.com, these are the bands on the LX1:

                  2G bands    GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2

                  3G bands    HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100

                  4G bands    LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 7(2600), 8(900), 20(800)

                   

                  Of these, T-Mobile uses GSM 1900 and/or HSDPA 1900 in most markets but not all.

                  They don't use any of the LTE bands listed. In fact LTE bands 1, 3, 8 & 20 are not used in North America at all. Band 7 is used in Canada but not the US.

                  In short, the LX1 is designed for use in Europe and Asia, not for North America.

                  The phone might work better on AT&T (or Cricket) because AT&T has deployed either HSDPA 850 or 1900 in just about every market. T-Mobile only has 850 MHz in Myrtle Beach, SC and has to rely much more on LTE for basic connections.

                So another words this is not the phone you need.

                        I bought an Honor 6 a year ago. The sim reader quit for some reason (determined by a VERY nice lady at T Mobile). It had worked well until then and was compatible (researched first). It was under warranty so after chatting with someone, I sent it for repair. It came back with a note stating that it had water damage so the warranty was void. Took it to a repair shop for a look. They said there was NO water damage but the frame was bent.
                        Not only does Huawai make lousy products and have lousy service, they lie.
                        If you can get a refund, do so.
