    Will Sprint iPhone 6 (Model: A1586) work on T-Mobile BYOD?

    losione

      Will an unlocked Sprint iPhone 6 (Model: A1586 CDMA) work on T-Mobile BYOD?

       

      I understand the difference between CDMA and GSM, but T-Mobile does support the Sprint iPhone 5 (Model: A1429 CDMA) as BYOD.

      Will  voice calls work?

      Will text messages (sms) work?

      Will multimedia messages (mms) work?

      Will 2G data work?

      Will 3G data work?

      Will 4G data work?

      Will LTE data work?

      Will any T-Mobile specific features work? AWS? WiFi Calling? VoLTE (Voice over LTE)?

       

      From Apple, all the LTE bands are the same (Sprint's A1586 has 4 additional 38,39,40,41)

      I was told from T-Mobile technical support, T-Mobile uses LTE bands 4 (AWS 1700/2100) primarily, and 2 (1900 MHz) secondary/experimental.

      Furthermore, Wikipedia has T-Mobile LTE bands listed as 4 (AWS 1700/2100), 2 (1900 MHz), 12 (700 MHz Block A)
