    Default Phones that support band 2 lte

    I wanted to start a thread for phones that supports Tmobile's band 2 lte which will be deployed soon. I don't have many yet, but if you have specific phones, then I can check it out for you if you want to know.

    Phones that support band 2 (tmobile variant uno)
    Note 3
    Iphone 5s
    Iphone 5c
    S5 (att and tmobile)
    HTC One M8 (AT&T only)

    Phones that DO NOT support band 2
    HTC One M8(tmobile only)

    BlackBerry Z10 (either of the STL100-3)
    BlackBerry Q10 (SQN100-1 or -5)
    BlackBerry Q5 (SQR100-1)

    Edit: if you're looking specifically at the TMO variants, those would be the STL100-3 RFK121LW and the SQN100-5. The rest are either AT&T variants or were never carried by American carriers (the Q5.) The SQN100-1 does not have the UMTS 1700 band, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for use on TMO. It does have LTE bands 2 and 4, as well as UMTS 1900.

    Oh right...that. When you said soon, I thought you meant soon--like earlier than mid-2015 for most places

    OK, so what does not having Band 2 on the T-Mo M8 mean for those of us who bought this phone?

    You may still get HSPA or EDGE in some of the areas where they are converting 1900MHz from 2G to LTE. That's about it.

    Wait...the HTC One M8 for T-Mobile does not have LTE band 2? Seriously?

    Yeah... it came out right before they were making the big push for Edge -> LTE on Band 2. The AT&T model has Band 2 and 4 LTE but doesn't have Band IV HSPA. There's really no version of the phone that works "perfectly" on T-Mobile.

    That sucks for the one M8. I'm glad my Nexus 5 is covered.
