    Did some research and still can't quite understand the band issue with T Mobile. I know they use 1700 and 2100 for fast 3G and sometime use 1900 if the towers have been refarmed. I contacted Blu for help with the best phone for T Mobile and here's what I got

    "In order to take advantage of the 3G/4G speeds make sure you have the appropriate model. All devices whose product number ends in “a” support 3G/4G at 850/1900MHz . Devices that end in “i” support 3G/4G at 850/2100MHz. Models whose product number ends in “l” support 3G/4G at 850/1900/2100MHz and models that end with “u” support 3G/4G on the 850/1900/1700MHz. Make sure the service provider uses the right 3G frequency for your device and that the proper APN (Access Point Name) settings are set."

    Based on the above info I should be pretty set with any of the Blu "u" models? Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! That should work. Here's T-Mobile's official support page discussing its bands: T-Mobile network coverage | T-Mobile Support

    Thanks much! I've seen the T Mobile doc before. It's just a bit confusing as manufacturers don't often label the same. It seems that sometimes they say 1700 when the mean 1700/2100.
