    Thank you so much. Just taking with t Mobil on web chat. They said the no contract t mobile will be the unlocked Sim card. But I'm still not sure about it. Any one here bought the no contract one and ever tried to put at&t Sim card? Does it work?

    Does the t-mobile and AT&T versions cover the same frequencies? If they do I would assume AT&T version is better because it also has LTE radios enabled?

    Here are the frequencies
    LTE 700 / 1700
    WCDMA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100
    GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    AT&T version also supports LTE 850/1900, but does not support WCDMA 1700

    A lot of people have done it. If you are on contact, call and pay the $200 etf and ask them the unlock code

    What I'm wondering is... if this phone is unlocked, will it receive AT&T LTE with an AT&T SIM?

    This is what the extra wcdma band dose:
    As usual Samsungís awesome ServiceMode is on the device and confirms that T-Mobile DC-HSPA+ is working. If you havenít read discussion of DC-HSPA+ before, this is WCDMA carrier aggregation that combines two 5 MHz WCDMA downlink carriers, statistically multiplexes across them, and effectively doubles throughput on the downlink. That gets you from the theoretical maximum of 21.1 Mbps on 64QAM WCDMA up to 42 Mbps on dual carrier at the moment, which T-Mobile does run in its ď4GĒ markets at present. Iím actually a huge fan of T-Mobileís commitment to continually rolling out the latest physical layer upgrades for WCDMA and DC-HSPA+ keeps things feeling very speedy when youíre in good coverage and still helps at cell edge. Upstream is still limited to a single WCDMA uplink carrier, but most mobile traffic is so asymmetric to begin with it isnít a huge deal.

    the T-Mobile Note 2 includes support for LTE bands 17 (which AT&T uses) and 4 (AWS, which AT&T has specced devices out for and T-Mobile has confirmed it will deploy LTE on).

    LTE Support Band 17 (700 Lower B+C), 4 (AWS), UE Cat 3 FDD-LTE (Up to 100 Mbps DL)

    If you have any questions please feel free to PM me. I am always willing to help anyone willing to learn.

    Donations never expected but always gratefully accepted: on payal.
