        T-Mobile uses LTE bands 2, 4 & 12 in the Chicago area. The phone should work reasonably well on T-Mobile but not optimal.

        What UMTS bands does it have?

                T-Mobile in many areas has some UMTS 1900 or 1700. So your phone has three out of the 5 3G/4G bands currently used in the Chicago area. It will probably work OK but to be fully compatible with T-Mobile a phone should have LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12 & 71 for roaming abroad it should have bands 1, 3, 7 & 8. After the merger with Sprint is complete having 25, 26 & maybe 41 would be a good idea. .
