    Default Unlocked Moto X - T-Mobile.

    Has anyone purchased the Moto X on ATT, unlocked it, and used it on T-Mobile's network. I really wanna do this but wondering if anyone has done it already. I know it can get LTE, but I'm more curious about what other speeds it will get.

    Also if I were to get it, unlock it, and it didn't work out as planned do you think att would take the return with no problems?

    I just purchased a factory unlocked moto x. it's got the same bands as the at&t branded phone i believe. (correct me if i'm wrong).
    I am going to through a t-mo sim into to it and see what i can get. i'll check back here once i do so!

    I'm in Orangevale(95662) and we have LTE here, I get it on my n4. You are using an AT&T moto x I assume right? It gets both h+ and lte? I might go that route if so because then I can at least choose colors and save 21 bucks. By the way, your links are no good but thanks for posting about this.

    Are you getting HSDPA? I think its T-Mobile's standard 4G/3G

    aww really? hmm i used the "insert image" button. ehh. well, i purchased a factory unlocked one. however, my friend bought an at&t moto x, we unlocked it, and it seems to have the same bands as mine. he is also able to get T-Mobile's LTE and 4G service.

    AT&T's Moto X does NOT have the 1700 AWS for HSPA so you will not get HSPA or 3G and rather be stuck on edge if your area is not refarmed. You will however get LTE if your area has it.

    ahh yes this is correct. my apologies, however, if you're in a refarmed area (check here: Sightings of T-Mobile 3G/4G/HSPA+ coverage on 1900MHz (PCS/UMTS band II)) the you'll get HSPA/3G.

    Not worth it unless you never leave your area. The Sightings are tiny areas.
