    Hello all,

    Quick Question: Will the Sprint version of the Moto X work on T-mobile? I want to buy a Moto X directly Motorola.

    I'm currently on Sprint, and desperately need a new phone. However, I plan on switching to T-mobile at the end of year. If I buy the Sprint version of the Moto X straight from motorola, will I later then be able to pop in a T-mobile SIM and use the phone with no problems?

    Here are the LTE bands for the Sprint version: Motorola Moto X (Sprint) Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)

    LTE Bands for the GSM version: Motorola Moto X (GSM) Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)

    What bands do T-mobile use LTE on? Which bands do they use for the HSPA and HSPA+ ? Will the Sprint version of the phone be fully functional with T-mobile's network?

    Thanks!

    I looked at the bands and see they seem to be similar. My opinion would be no. I haven't seen anyone with a sprint ver. running on T-Mobile. Sprints CDMA technology and T-Mobile is GSM. I know a lot of this has changed in the last year or so and manufacturers are trying to cram every radio into one phone. But the T-Mobile version does carry the important to T-Mobile only frequency of WCDMA 1700. If your going over to T-Mobile in 2 months I just wait and get the correct version.
