    Caught this on the moto forums yesterday. the US, power and play have it but not the G7. Im on the t-mobile network and this band is crucial since i work and live in the city, travel to rural areas often.

    Is this a deal breaker?

    If TMO is using Band 71 where you are, and no alternative band, I'd consider it a deal breaker, since you have, at best, 3G mobile data. But if they're not using Band 71 where you are, it's irrelevant. (I'm using a Pixel 2 on TMO - no Band 71, but they aren't using it here, so I don't care.)

    SO for comparison i checked the current G6 specs and it too doesn't have band 71. The TMO site sez its used nation wide but lacked any specific (Bay Area) regional info. One thing i did notice was that w/o using band 71 which is 600mhz TMO doesnt use a LTE band thats less than 1000mhz. Disadvantage?

    Band 71 Nationwide? More Legere hype.

    Per these links, nothing at all in the SF Bay Area.
