    Default Sony Xperia Z2 - T-Mobile (The Wait)

    Once HTC One (The New One) comes out, it's gonna be between the Xperia Z2 and HTC. I am just hoping the Z2 comes to T-Mobile.

    Hopefully. It is kind of a drag to see a lot of phones be available on every carrier but a US one.

    Make it an unlocked Google play edition that works on T-Mobile and I'm in

    I agree, personally I'm done with waiting for carrier phones to be released. Even when they are they usually come late have a lock bootloader and late at releasing updates. I finally stepped up to a international unlocked phone and I'm never looking back. I was always a slave to tmobile wifi calling but with so many avenues to communicate via Hangouts, talkatone and Google voice, I said f-u to wificalling and took the plunge onto an unlocked phone.

    I see no reason why the new z2 International version won't be compatible with tmobile service.

    Sorry to ask but what is the difference in using an unlocked international phone in the US? Are you able to pick your phone carrier without a contract? So far I have T-Mobile in South FL and it sucks for my whole family. Ex: I am on call and get ALOT of texts for my job, every so often during the month, my would be silent for about 3-4 hours while I'm working or inside a nursing home. The minute I step out all the calls and texts start pouring in. I wouldn't mind so much if it did it to the same place all the time but it seems to pick a random nursing home or office every 2 -3 weeks where as that same I had no issues with before. Also it really behooves me to have a phone and have the lowest signal inside your home. I love t-mobile but I am thinking about AT-T all over again.

    I'm not sure, but I'm guessing it's the frequency coverage. A GSM U.S. phone would cover the appropriate U.S. frequencies that U.S. GSM carriers use....but I could be wrong.

    Tmobile is working on this. If you live in one of the areas listed in the link below you should be receiving an upgrade in signal coverage by this coming fall. The 700MHz spectrum will help penetrate building walls better and travel farther.

    I know this is purely a wild a** guess at this point, but what are your guesses for when this is available on T-Mo?

    I'm looking to make the switch this coming weekend. My original plan was to use one of my other devices if this is likely coming in the next 30 days, and then save my device purchase for the Z2. However, with the Z1s still being fairly new to them, would you expect to see the Z2 released so quickly? If it's likely going to be more than 30-60 days, I'd probably just get the Z1s for now and then upgrade later.

    Again, know this is purely a guess, but just hoping to hear input from those that are more familiar with how Sony & T-Mobile operate since they will both be new to me.

    Thanks!

    3 month difference from release of the original z to the tmobile release. 3.5 month difference from the z1 to the tmobile release.

    If they follow trend then your looking at 3-4 months from UK release to tmobile release

    I think it will be closer to 6 months. The release of the Z2 has been delayed, read about it here: Xperia Z2 Tablet launched in Hong Kong; Xperia Z2 delayed | Xperia Blog

    However, you could get a Z1s now and enroll in JUMP that way you can upgrade to the TMo Z2 it becomes available. This is what I did. Have to say, I'm pretty happy with the Z1s and I think the Z2 screen with an 801 snapdragon and 3gb of ram will be a nice upgrade.

    Thanks for the info. It sounds like I should probably go to the Z1s and just upgrade later.

    Why not get an unlocked variant when available? There will surely be one that supports T-Mobile bands.

    Hey guys, I was wondering whether the unlocked version would work on T-Mobile LTE bands. If it does, is $760 a justified price, or will it come down when it is released in the states?

    I get LTE at the same speeds I used to get on my gs4 on tmobile. I'm guessing it'll still be around 699 when it hits state side

    You have to enable it in your settings, by default LTE is off

    4G is LTE on this phone.

    When I first got it the software was at version .50 something. I was getting LTE in the status bar (and I'm on T-Mobile).
    The software update .69 got rid of the LTE logo and replaced it with 4G.

    Well, this discussion has become less important for me. Verizon can have the Z2. A 16gb phone won't work for me and the other updates are pretty incremental (including 4.4 IM).

    I'm going to wait for the Z3. The Z1s came to the TMo network in late January, so, a Z3 release would seem to line up better with timing. I also suspect we'll see some other interesting updates. Time will tell.
