    Question Which budget Android phone works on T-Mobile in Las Vegas?

    Hi,

    I'm due to go on holiday later this year to Las Vegas (coming from the UK). The best tariff I've found is T-Mobile PAYG. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9300), which, as far as I'm aware, isn't compatible with T-Mobile's US network.

    I'm looking to sell this handset just before I leave and pick up a cheap budget Android off eBay that is definitely compatible with T-Mobile whilst I'm in Las Vegas. Can someone inform me of both some good cheap options and the bands that T-Mobile specifically uses for USA/Las Vegas?

    Thanks alot in advance

    The s3 i9300 should work on tmobile. In Las Vegas, you should be able to get voice and up to 4g speeds since Las Vegas is a refarmed area

    Thanks for that info. I wasn't aware that the S3 (i9300) works in Vegas on T-Mobile. Out of interested what does a 'refarmed area' refer to? Cheers!

    T-Mobile has taken 1900mhz spectrum and re-farmed it so to speak to work with its network. You should get HSDPA+ or LTE speeds IF your device is capable of that in the specific band.
    I cant speak as to the coverage because im not in that geographical location so hopefully someone there can chime in.

    I9300 doesn't support 4GLTE.

    When you say cheap what range are you talking?
