Re: International Galaxy Note 8 in US
Here's my best guess from what I know...
The Galaxy Note 8 specs state
This means that it won't be able to run on HSPA+ for T-Mobile because T-Mobile require both 1700 MHz and 2100 MHz UMTS AWS. i.e. you need to have both frequencies supported.
Network: HSPA+ 21Mbps (850/900/1900/2100)
However, unless I'm wrong it should work on AT&T HSPA+ as that runs on 850MHz or1900 MHz and the Galaxy Note 8 supports both.
So AT&T looks like the network for the international variant.
Rearding Straight talk, this is where it gets complicated. According to the wiki page on Straight Talk, they are an MNVO but make use of multiple networks for different reasons.
So, when it comes to GSM based HSPA+, I can't tell if it would work as it would need both TMobile and AT&T to run? Not sure I'd be willing to risk it TBH.
[Straight Talk's] CDMA network uses Verizon's or Sprint's CDMA 1xRTT wireless networks and the GSM side makes use of either T-Mobile's or AT&T's GSM networks.
