T-Mobile to add the all-new Sony Xperia® Z3 this fall | T-Mobile Newsroom
Pricing will depend on how you finance the device. Tmo doesn't subsidize phones any more, you have to purchase. How much you pay can vary depending on how you decide to pay for the phone.

No wireless charging? Well...that puts it out of the running, I'm afraid. I have a Nexus 5 and am addicted to just plopping the thing on the little pad on the head of my bed...it's the little things that help make the decisions between great phones.

I really want the Z3 and I'm glad it's coming to T-Mobile, but I don't think I want to settle for the black version. I would either want the white or the silver-green model. I looked at the FCC documents like some others here and the only difference between the black-only model coming to T-Mobile and the international device with all colors available is BAND 12 LTE (that 700mhz spectrum).
Say I decide to get the international silver-green model, what can I expect running that here in the States on T-Mobile? Wi-Fi calling I can just install a T-Mo ROM for so that shouldn't end up being a problem. I currently have a T-Mo branded Galaxy S4 which doesn't support that spectrum either I believe, so I don't think I'll miss anything.

I bought the international version of the Xperia Z1 compact for my wife (who LOVES IT btw). You won't have an issue with the majority of bands (save Band 12) because the majority are part of the Qualcomm processor. You will need to call into Tmo support to get them to provide you the APN addresses and such. There is one other bug we ran into dealing with not being able to send MMS messages while LTE is turned on. I honestly think thats a bug in the phone software. For my wife who used the iPhone 5 (hated it), LG G2 hated it because it was too big the awesome camera and size made a huge difference for her with the compact.
As far as the WiFi calling I haven't figured out how to add that.

Are any of these rumors legit......your guess is as good as mine. Time will tell but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Z3 released on other US carriers.

Considering the international Z3 and the T-Mobile model are identical except for the radios, I would assume a T-Mobile ROM could be installed on the international version. I think that's how it works on the GS4 anyway, and should work with any device with an exact T-Mobile counterpart.
Can anyone with more know-how on this chime in? I'm not sure if the differing radio frequencies would cause problems doing what I describe above, nor the need install certain kernels/radios/modems from either model.
